MCSA Certification – Windows Server 2012 & Cloud Platform

Our Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate MCSA – Windows Server 2012 & Cloud Platform online training program teaches the skills for designing, implementing, and administering infrastructures for business solutions based on Windows Server 2012. This includes the installation, configuration, and troubleshooting of network systems. In addition, topics related to developing, implementing, and architecting Microsoft Azure solutions are covered in this program.

Microsoft Windows Server 2012 builds upon features found in previous versions of Windows Server, as well as providing several new features. It includes a variety of features to help deploy operating systems, and to support, maintain and monitor an environment once implemented. Network Load Balancing (NLB) and failover clustering are also features of Microsoft Windows Server 2012, which provide different levels of fault tolerance, high availability, and scalability to the workloads in your data center. NLB provides availability and scalability for servers running TCP/IP services, such as Web, FTP, firewall, proxy and VPN. Failover clustering provides high availability and scalability for services and applications.

The Cloud Platform competency is designed for those looking to capitalize on the growing demand for infrastructure and software as a service (SaaS) solutions built on Microsoft Azure.

A vendor certification is available for each course of our Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate program. Upon completion of training, the students are fully prepared for these certification exams. However, they are not a requirement for graduation. Vendor certifications are at the student’s expense and are not administered by the school.

Occupational Objective: Network and Computer Systems Administrator
