Last week I decided to get started with a new MCSD certification: Azure Solutions Architect. In a world where more customers want to take advantage of Microsoft Azure, it’s important to get my knowledge up-and-running. At my own company we are using Microsoft Azure for almost all our backend tasks. We are hosting sites, web services, SQL Azure databases and for example Virtual Machines with a regular SQL Server installation. We can manage them fine, but for some real troubleshooting our knowledge is not sufficient.
