Overview

On your accelerated MCSE: Cloud Platform (Server Infrastructure) course, you will learn the skills to design and implement advance Server Infrastructure. You will also enhance your skills across Windows Server 2012 and System Center 2012 - 40% faster than with traditional training.

Your experienced Microsoft Certified Trainer will immerse you in Microsoft Official Curriculum. Combined with our Lecture | Lab | Review technique, you'll learn both theoretical and practical skills that will help you retain information faster. You'll also develop the hands-on skills needed to apply your new knowledge in the work place, including:

  • Planning and deploying servers using Virtual Machine Manager
  • Designing and implementing an AD DS physical topology
  • Designing and implementing network protection
  • Planning and deploying virtual machines
  • Planning and implementing high availability for file services and applications

You'll be prepared for and sit the following exams at the Firebrand Training Centre during the course. This is covered by your Certification Guarantee.

  • Exam 70-413: Designing and Implementing a Server Infrastructure
  • Exam 70-414: Implementing an Advanced Server Infrastructure

To ensure that you have a broad understanding of Server Infrastructure using Windows Server 2012 and System Center 2012, you'll be prepared for and have the option to sit both exams. However, to gain your MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure (Server Infrastructure) certification you only need to pass one of the two exams.

Earning your MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure certification proves you have the skills to run a modern data center, with expertise across cloud technologies, identity management, systems management, virtualization, storage, and networking.
