Server virtualization is a virtualization technique that involves partitioning a physical server into a number of small, virtual servers with the help of virtualization software. The concept of server virtualization is widely applied in IT infrastructure as a way of minimizing costs by increasing the utilization of existing resources. Virtualizing servers is often a good solution for small- to medium-scale applications. This technology is widely used for providing cost-effective web hosting services.


Evolving business demands are reshaping the modern workplace. The traditional model – employees working at the office on corporate devices – has undergone a dramatic transformation, and an increasingly diverse workforce now expects to be able to work from anywhere using a variety of devices. With these new requirements, come new challenges from providing contract workers with secure remote access to supporting an influx of personal devices. Application and desktop virtualization helps address these concerns effectively.


In this topic, you will gain the skills and knowledge needed to design, install, and configure a cloud infrastructure. You will learn how to configure and deploy the application infrastructure as well as the key components of System Center 2012 R2 that are necessary for managing services on the cloud infrastructure. You will cover the requirements needed to produce a high-level design for the cloud environment. Through hands-on practice, you will configure and deploy the application infrastructure.


OpenStack software controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a data-center, managed through a dashboard. OpenStack works with popular enterprise and open source technologies making it ideal for heterogeneous infrastructure. Hundreds of the world’s largest brands rely on OpenStack to run their businesses every day, reducing costs and helping them move faster. OpenStack has a strong ecosystem, and users seeking commercial support can choose from different OpenStack-powered products and services in the Marketplace.


The Azure Services Platform (Azure) is an internet-scale cloud services platform hosted in Microsoft data centres, which provides an operating system and a set of developer services that can be used individually or together. Azure’s flexible and interoperable platform can be used to build new applications to run from the cloud or enhance existing applications with cloud-based capabilities. Its open architecture gives developers the choice to build web applications, applications running on connected devices, PCs, servers, or hybrid solutions offering the best of online and on-premises.


Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a comprehensive, evolving cloud computing platform provided by Web services are sometimes called cloud services or remote computing services. The first AWS offerings were launched in 2006 to provide online services for websites and client-side applications. AWS rules the cloud by offering every service imaginable and building out very aggressively.


This topic targets the needs of IT professionals who take part in evaluating, planning, deploying, and operating Office 365 services, including its identities, dependencies, requirements, and supporting technologies.

Windows PowerShell is a shell developed by Microsoft for purposes of task automation and configuration management. PowerShell’s capabilities allow you to simplify and automate tedious and repetitive tasks by creating scripts and combining multiple commands together. For example, you can use PowerShell to display all the USB devices installed on one or multiple computers in a network or you can set a time consuming task to run in the background while you do other work.


Backup and recovery refers to the process of backing up data in case of a loss and setting up systems that allow that data recovery due to data loss. Backing up data requires copying and archiving computer data, so that it is accessible in case of data deletion or corruption. Data from an earlier time may only be recovered if it has been backed up. Data backup is a form of disaster recovery and should be part of any disaster recovery plan.
