  • Integrate Azure Active Directory (AAD) with Azure resources to enforce identity-based access controls and enable single sign-on (SSO) for users.
  • Conduct regular security assessments, vulnerability scans, and penetration tests to identify and remediate security vulnerabilities in Azure environments.
  • Design, implement, and manage Azure Site Recovery (ASR) solutions to provide disaster recovery and business continuity capabilities for on-premises and Azure-based workloads.
  • Assess application and workload dependencies, and develop recovery plans to ensure timely and efficient failover and failback processes in the event of a disaster.
  • Configure replication settings and recovery point objectives (RPOs) for different types of workloads, optimizing replication performance and minimizing data loss.
  • Conduct regular disaster recovery drills and tests to validate the effectiveness of ASR configurations and procedures, and identify areas for improvement.
  • Monitor ASR replication health and performance using Azure Monitor and other monitoring tools, and troubleshoot replication issues to ensure continuous data protection.
  • Design, deploy, and manage Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) solutions to provide virtualized desktop infrastructure (VDI) for remote and distributed workforces.
  • Create and configure AVD host pools, session hosts, and virtual machine configurations based on user requirements and performance considerations.
  • Integrate AVD with Azure Active Directory (AAD) for identity management and authentication, enabling secure access to virtual desktops and applications.
  • Implement user profile management solutions such as Azure Files or FSLogix to ensure consistent user experiences and personalized desktop environments.
  • Optimize AVD performance and scalability by monitoring resource utilization, identifying performance bottlenecks, and implementing performance tuning measures.
  • Implement security controls such as network security groups (NSGs), Azure Firewall, and Azure Conditional Access policies to protect AVD environments from cyber threats and unauthorized access.
  • Collaborate with architects and developers to assess requirements and provide technical guidance on the selection and configuration of Azure services.
  • Deploy and configure virtual machines, containers, and other Azure resources according to best practices for performance, scalability, and security.
  • Implement data storage and management solutions using Azure Storage, Azure SQL Database, Azure Cosmos DB, and other Azure data services.
  • Establish and maintain security controls, compliance policies, and disaster recovery strategies for Azure environments.
  • Troubleshoot and resolve issues related to Azure services, network connectivity, performance, and security.
  • Document configurations, processes, and procedures for Azure infrastructure and services.
  • Stay informed about emerging Azure technologies, features, and best practices.
  • Proficiency in PowerShell for automation and data analysis.


Qualification (Education/Work Experience):

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Information Technology, or a related field (or equivalent work experience).
