Cognixia is a Microsoft Silver Partner and our AZ-104: Microsoft Azure Administrator Associate training and certification course is one of the best online Microsoft training courses that you can enroll in to get started on the Microsoft Certified Azure Administrator career pathway.

When you take the AZ-104: Microsoft Azure Administrator Associate certification examination, you get an opportunity to demonstrate key skills to configure, manage, secure, and administer key professional functions in Microsoft Azure.

As an aspiring Microsoft Azure Administrator, you must have proficiency in implementing, managing, and monitoring an organization’s Azure environment, including the virtual networks, storage, compute, identity, security, and governance. Azure administrators are usually a part of the larger teams dedicated to implementing the organization’s cloud infrastructure. They would also have experience working with PowerShell, Azure CLI, the Azure portal, Azure Resource Manager templates, and Microsoft Entra ID.

With an increasing number of companies worldwide migrating from on-premise, local infrastructure to cloud-based solutions like Microsoft Azure, the role of Microsoft Azure Administrators is becoming increasingly crucial to maintain and manage the cloud infrastructure. Skilled Azure administrators are already in high demand and the role is expected to continue growing in the years to come as cloud adoption keeps rising.

Cognixia’s AZ-104: Microsoft Azure Administrator training follows the official Microsoft exam outline and study guide. This Microsoft Azure training covers how to manage Azure subscriptions, secure identities, administer infrastructure, configure virtual networking, connect Azure and on-premise sites, manage network traffic, implement storage solutions, create and scale virtual machines, implement web apps and containers, backup and share data, and monitor different cloud-based solutions. Upon finishing the course, the learners will not just be fully equipped to appear for and clear the AZ-104: Microsoft Azure Administrator Certification examination but also have sharpened the skills that are essential to be a successful Azure Administrator. They would have a solid understanding of on-premise virtualization technologies like VMs, virtual networking, and virtual hard disks. They would be fluent with network configurations such as TCP/IP, Domain Name System (DNS), Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), Firewalls, and encryption technologies. The course covers active directory concepts like users, groups, and role-based access control. Apart from this, this Azure training also helps learners be well-versed in resilience and disaster recovery operations.

Cognixia’s Microsoft Azure AZ-104 training and certification focuses on five key domains, as laid out by the official Microsoft Exam AZ-104 Study Guide. These domains are:

  • Manage Azure identities and governance
  • Implement and manage storage
  • Deploy and manage Azure compute resources
  • Implement and manage virtual networking
  • Monitor and maintain Azure resources

Spread over 34 hours, the AZ-104 training course is live, online, and instructor-led. At the end of the course, learners will be ready to appear for the AZ-104 certification exam. The exam will be proctored and it is NOT an open-book examination. The exam duration is 100 minutes.

Once you clear the AZ-104 certification examination, you will earn the credentials of a Microsoft Certified Azure Administrator Associate. The next step in your career path on this Microsoft certification track would be the Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification, followed by the Azure Network Engineer Associate, and then the Windows Server Hybrid Administrator Associate.
