Overview

On this accelerated 1-day Microsoft Cloud Workshop: Big Compute course, you'll get the skills you need to set up and configure a scale-out media processing architecture using Azure Batch.

Your expert Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT), will guide you through big computing techniques without writing lots of code and learning how these tasks can be accomplished declaratively.

During the workshop you'll also learn how to:

  • Author custom Pool and Job templates
  • Work with Job input and output files
  • Author Batch auto-scale formulas
  • Leverage Batch Labs and the Azure Portal for management and monitoring
  • Use Marketplace applications to simplify common big compute tasks, such as 3D rendering

You'll be immersed in the Microsoft Official Curriculum (MOC) through our unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique, which combines theory and practical skills to help you retain information faster.

If you're a cloud architect and IT professional with architectural expertise of infrastructure and solutions design in cloud technologies and would like to learn more about Azure, this course is ideal for you.

Six reasons why you should sit your Big Compute course with Firebrand Training

  1. You'll be Big Compute trained in just 1 day.
  2. Our Big Compute course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials and meals. No hidden extras
  3. You’ll learn more Big Compute. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  4. You’ll learn Big Compute faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  5. You’ll be studying Big Compute with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 76258 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  6. You'll do more than study Big Compute courseware. We use practical exercises to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging

"The instructor explained all the modals well, gave good insight in the exam and azure for administrators i hope to go further with my Azure and MS Certifications and this course has helped me greatly."
Harrison Williams, NHS - Clinical Commissioning Group. (13/7/2020 (Monday) to 16/7/2020 (Thursday))

David Joynson, Kingfisher IT Services. (6/7/2020 (Monday) to 10/7/2020 (Friday))

"TSQL training with the instructor was great, very informative, interactive and beneficial. "
Anonymous (6/7/2020 (Monday) to 8/7/2020 (Wednesday))

"This was my first time training from home, but the experience was so good that this will be my preferred option for future courses."
Richard George, British Red Cross. (22/6/2020 (Monday) to 24/6/2020 (Wednesday))

"The instructor took time to teach the concepts using free flowing whiteboard sessions, followed by hands-on demonstrations, before going to the official course materials. Lessons were focused on both real-world and exam knowledge. I have been in many classes where the instructor just reads out the course materials and doesnt actually teach anything which was NOT the case here with Frebrand. The instructor explained things in a concise and easy to understand manner. One of the best instructors I have come across in over 20 years of attending IT courses."
James Tobin. (22/6/2020 (Monday) to 25/6/2020 (Thursday))
