74-409, 70-246 and 70-247 and how they work together

I got a question on twitter regarding the new Microsoft exam 74-409 and the Microsoft Private Cloud exams 70-246 and 70-247.

The new 74-409 Server Virtualization with Windows Server Hyper-V and System Center exam is as I see it a replacement for the old MCTS/MCITP Exam 70-659 Windows Server 2008 R2, Server Virtualization.

Server virtualization is a foundation for a cloud implementation. If you stay on premise in a private cloud, reach out to add online resources in a hybrid cloud or simply move your workload online into a public cloud.

Microsoft Private cloud exam 70-247 Configuring and Deploying a Private Cloud with System Center 2012 teaches you how to use System Center to build your private cloud.

70-246 Monitoring and Operating a Private Cloud with System Center 2012 teaches you how to integrate and maintain your workload in that cloud.

If you haven’t started studying for the Microsoft exams I would suggest that you start with 74-409 followed by 70-247 and 70-246, top that off with a Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA): Windows Server 2012 and you are Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE): Private Cloud + Microsoft Certified Specialist: Server Virtualization with Hyper-V and System Center.

By the way you know that you can get the 74-409 for FREE 🙂 Check out this article to get started.
