ESI-AZ-120 - Designing and Deploying SAP on Azure


Duration: 4 days

This course is only intended for Selected Customers who have been approved by Microsoft.

This course teaches IT Professionals experienced in SAP solutions how to leverage Azure resources that include deployment and configuration of virtual machines, virtual networks, storage accounts, and Azure AD that includes implementing and managing hybrid identities. Students of this course will learn through concepts, scenarios, procedures, and hands-on labs how to best plan and implement migration and operation of an SAP solution on Azure. Your will receive guidance on subscriptions, create and scale virtual machines, implement storage solutions, configure virtual networking, back up and share data, connect Azure and on-premises sites, manage network traffic, implement Azure Active Directory, secure identities, and monitor your solution.


After completing this course, students will be able to: 

  • Migrate and manage SAP applications (SAP HANA, S/4HANA, SAP NetWeaver) on Azure
  • Leverage Azure Portal, Cloud Shell, Azure PowerShell, CLI, Resource Manager, and Resource Manager Te
  • Use intersite connectivity features including VNet Peering, VNet-to-VNet connections, Site-to-Site C
  • Work with Azure Active Directory (AD), Azure AD Connect, and Azure AD Join, and Azure AD Identity 


This course is for Azure Administrators who migrate and manage SAP solutions on Azure. Azure Administrators manage the cloud services that span storage, networking, and compute cloud capabilities, with a deep understanding of each service across the full IT lifecycle. They take end-user requests for new cloud applications and make recommendations on services to use for optimal performance and scale, as well as provision, size, monitor and adjust as appropriate. This role requires communicating and coordinating with vendors. Azure Administrators use the Azure Portal and as they become more proficient they use PowerShell and the Command Line Interface.
