You can build modern data applications, integrate with other Azure services, and leverage advanced analytics and machine learning capabilities to gain insights and make informed decisions.
Azure Certification Program (ACP)
The Azure Certification Program (ACP) at Vision Institute of Technology (VIT) offers hands-on training in the latest Azure technologies for engineering students. The program is designed to help students become proficient in cloud computing and earn their Azure certification. Day 1 begins with an introduction to cloud computing and an overview of Microsoft Azure, followed by a hands-on lab session. On Day 2, students will learn about successful cloud implementations and receive an introduction to Azure Storage. Day 3 focuses on Azure Data Services and includes a hands-on lab session. By the end of the program, students will have a deep understanding of Azure technologies and will be well-prepared for diving further in cloud!.
Azure Storage Services
The Azure Storage platform is Microsoft’s cloud storage solution for modern data storage scenarios. Azure Storage offers highly available, massively scalable, durable, and secure storage for a variety of data objects in the cloud. Azure Storage data objects are accessible from anywhere in the world over HTTP or HTTPS via a REST API. At Azure Certification Series of VIT we give you hands on training on various aspects of building & hosting Azure Data Services
Virtual Machines (VM)
Virtual Machines (VMs) are software-based emulations of physical computer systems that run on top of a physical host machine. They provide a virtualized environment for running operating systems and applications, and offer benefits such as increased flexibility, scalability, reliability, security, and cost-effectiveness. VMs are a popular solution for hosting and running applications at remote locations, as they can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection. At VIT Azure Certification Course we give you hands on training on various aspects of building & hosting VM on Azure
What’s happening in Emerging Tech at Vision
Containers- the future of App deployment
Containers have gained significant popularity in recent years, and many experts believe that they are a key technology for the future of application development and deployment. Experts predict that containers will continue to be an important technology for building and deploying applications, particularly in cloud and DevOps environments.
Application Programming Interface (API)
An Application Programming Interface (API) is a set of rules and protocols that specifies how two software programs should interact with each other. At VIT, a Live Session was conducted on designing API using Visual Studio 2022 IDE. Dot.NET Version 7.0 was used with C#.
