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

January 4, 2014

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.

The summer break is over, no sleep ‘til Christmas!

August 19, 2013

Autumn is approaching even if i try my hardest to resist the colder weather. I probably will use shorts until the first frost

I kick off with delivery of two Microsoft Private Cloud classes at Cornerstone in Stockholm.

I start with the Monitoring and Operating a Private Cloud with System Center 2012 and then continue the following week with Configuring and Deploying a Private Cloud with System Center 2012

The corresponding exams 70-246 and 70-247 adds to the MCSA on Windows Server to the MCSE Private Cloud.

It’s going to be great fun, so if you are interested hurry up and get your seat.


My Road to Certification

May 16, 2013

I have worked with Microsoft products for a long time and am kind of a late starter when it comes to Microsoft certifications. I’ve had Citrix and VMware certifications in my back pocket for some time but in 2010 I had the opportunity to attend a Microsoft Hyper-V class and I was on my way to retrieve my first Microsoft certification.

Read the article about my road to certification on the Microsoft Learning website Born To Learn.

Why not start studying for that exam you been thinking about.
