Optimized Architecture



In this workshop, students will learn how to optimize a lift and shift style IaaS architecture in Azure to improve cost savings. You will also compare IaaS and PaaS hosting options to save cost even further using Azure App Service. Additionally, students will learn to improve resiliency and high availability through multi-region deployment.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Optimize Azure IaaS for cost savings

  • Migrate an Azure IaaS optimized

  • Compare cost between Azure IaaS versus Azure PaaS

  • Setup SQL Database geo-replication

  • Configure multi-region deployment

Whiteboard Design Session

In this whiteboard design session, students will review how to size and optimize a migrated workload to Azure infrastructure as a service. From there they will consider the cost and benefit of optimizing the solution using Azure Platform as a Service (PaaS) services and then design and price the optimized solution

Hand-on Lab

In this hands-on lab, students will determine the appropriate hosting tiers for the Contoso Financial application and estimate the total cost savings on a monthly and annual basis. Then, they will implement and integrate Azure Traffic Manager. They will then migrate the Web, API and Background App Tiers of the application to the Azure App Service. They will then de-commission the old application infrastructure. Then, they will setup geo-replication for the Azure SQL Database in preparation for the next step, which is deploying an European instance of the Web App Tier. Finally, they will add an endpoint for this new Web App Tier to the Azure Traffic Manager.
