Introduction

This three-day course is intended primarily for IT Professionals who already have significant experience with managing an on-premises Windows Server environment. Its purpose is to cover advanced topics related to Windows Server Software Defined Datacenter and Azure Stack HCI. The course also provides information on other Azure Stack products as well as describes how existing System Center products can be used to implement and manage software defined datacenter with Windows Server 2019. This course is advanced and is aimed at people that want to run their virtual workloads on Windows Server 2019 at medium to large scale using software defined datacenter and hyper-converged principles.
