Frequently Asked Questions

Microsoft Azure is one of the leading cloud services providers in the world. The Azure platform offers users in over 60 regions and 140 countries more than 100 different services. The platform allows IT professionals and developers to develop, build, implement, and maintain applications in the cloud with its various tools and frameworks. It’s estimated that at least 95% of Fortune 500 companies use the Azure platform.

Azure Cloud Engineers are responsible for many cloud-related activities including: Assessing an organization’s IT infrastructure to determine options for moving to the cloud; Overseeing the migration process and maintaining the new system; Performing configuration management and disaster recovery tasks; Deploying Azure virtual machines in a highly available environment; Designing virtual networks that support workloads with a high level of security and performance; Configuring hybrid connectivity between Azure and on-site environments; Monitoring network performance to comply with service-level agreements; Using automation technology options within Azure; Designing and implementing data protection options in Azure. In addition to technical skills, an Azure Cloud Engineer also requires leadership and managerial skills. Strong communication skills are needed as a cloud engineer may be required to coordinate with other IT members or teams, negotiate with vendors, and communicate with senior management about cloud-related projects.

Cloud computing knowledge, including that of the Microsoft Azure platform, is not only important for jobs that have “cloud” in the title. These experts are also in demand for more traditional technology roles like software engineer, data scientist, and cybersecurity specialist as well.

You should have some general IT knowledge or experience. For professionals looking more foundational technical/IT experience before jumping into their cloud training, we recommend the System Administrator, Network Engineering, or Information Security Fundamentals career paths.
