About the Microsoft Azure test

Cloud computing has revolutionized the way organizations around the world do business, and Microsft Azure has been one of the major players in that revolution. Leveraging its vast network of data centers around the world, Microsoft has created the cloud platform Azure that allows users to build, deploy, and manage services and applications from anywhere. With Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) capabilities, Microsoft Azure's deeply-integrated cloud services can help your organization handle projects of all sizes and complexity with ease.

The Microsoft Azure test assesses candidates’ knowledge and skills in the areas of security in Azure, operational excellence and reliability, performance efficiency, and cost optimization.

Candidates who score well on this test demonstrate strong skills in designing and implementing best practices in Azure in adherence to Microsoft's Cloud Adoption Framework. These candidates can help you secure your assets in the cloud, increase the operational reliability of your resources, increase your performance capabilities, and decrease your costs strategically.

This Azure test is geared toward an intermediate level and requires not only theoretical but also practical experience to solve real-life scenarios that one can encounter when working with Azure.

Review from G2

Any tool can have functions—bells and whistles. Not every tool comes armed with staff passionate about making the user experience positive.

The TestGorilla team only offers useful insights to user challenges, they engage in conversation.

For instance, I recently asked a question about a Python test I intended to implement. Instead of receiving “oh, that test would work perfectly for your solution,” or, “at this time we’re thinking about implementing a solution that may or may not…” I received a direct and straightforward answer with additional thoughts to help shape the solution.

I hope that TestGorilla realizes the value proposition in their work is not only the platform but the type of support that’s provided.

For a bit of context—I am a diversity recruiter trying to create a platform that removes bias from the hiring process and encourages the discovery of new and unseen talent.
