Identity Access Management, Virtual Machine, Networking with Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS)

Work with the latest tools in the industry and learn how to apply them in the domain of Identity Access Management, Virtual machine, networking, and AKS.


Why IAM, VM, Networking, and AKS

“Identity is the new firewall of the future” because of its role in helping with regulatory compliance, security, and operational agility. The Identity and Access Management industry was valued at nearly $10 million in 2018 and grew at a Compound Annual Growth Rate of 13.1% until 2025. Azure Virtual Machines (VM) is one of several types of on-demand, scalable computing resources that Azure offers. Typically, you choose a VM when you need more control over the computing environment than the other choices offer.

In This Course

This program will focus on following technologies like Identity Access Management(IAM), Virtual Machine, Storage, Networking, and Azure Kubernetes services with hands-on training using lab scenarios as a CSS Engineer. The final project demonstrates the overall understanding of the concepts with hands-on experience to show that the students are job-ready from Day 1.

The Sollers Advantage

Our Certificate program is designed by our employer partner and customized based on industry requirements. The program is taught by industry experts who have 10+ years of experience in the related domain and designed to provide in-depth knowledge about IAM, VM, Networking, and AKS.
