As you migrate or build new solutions in the Cloud with Azure Landing Zones, set yourself up for success with a set of reference environments that provide an operational foundation to host your workloads in Azure.

Azure Landing Zones gives you the building blocks and scaffolding at the workload or organizational level to ensure any resource you build or migrate to Azure aligns with the rules and policies you set. We provision a set of Azure baseline services that you deploy as code to give you a landing zone to host your workloads. This ensures consistency across foundational services, like how you configure networking, identity, resource organization, governance policy, and operations.

Matt McSpirit, Microsoft Azure’s Senior Product Manager, joins host Jeremy Chapman to give you a hands-on introduction to landing zone options from ‘Start Small and Expand’, which helps you incrementally govern your environment, to ‘Enterprise Scale’, that enables you to operationalize and construct many landing zones at scale.
