I wanted to make sure you were aware of the following technical learning opportunity to help you prepare to sell and deploy on the Windows Azure Infrastructure. The first 4 session recordings are available on-demand and the final 4 are being delivered in April. I attended the first 4 and they are extremely useful for those of us who are hands-on with Azure.
Partner Practice Enablement: Windows Azure Technical Training
This training will be available via on-demand webcasts for self-study or upcoming live webcasts.
The training starts with an introduction to Windows Azure Virtual Machines and Virtual Networks (Infrastructure Services). It delivers the foundational knowledge needed for users intending to run new workloads in Windows Azure or migrate existing workloads from on-premises.
Students will be introduced to the rich features of Windows Azure Active Directory and see how it can be used to achieve single sign-on across cloud applications, protect application access, enforce multi-factor authentication, and integrate with Windows Server Active Directory.
