In the datacenter of today, virtualization has become common place. In fact, it is no longer an expensive, nice to have technology for enterprise customers, but a technology that is justified in any business with multiple physical servers to maintain. Gary Duffield, National Microsoft Partner Manager for DDLS points out, “Hyper-V has continued to evolve as a virtualization platform since it was first included in Windows Server 2008. In the current release, alongside Systems Center Virtual Machine Manager, Hyper-V is a very robust, feature rich and cost effective solution. IT professionals, who manage their organizations virtualization platform, now do so in an increasingly multi-hypervisor world, with many companies having a heterogeneous virtualization environment. With the current release of Windows Server R2, Microsoft’s timing in launching this training and certification programme is spot on.” 

This new course is aimed at those individuals who are responsible for designing, implementing, managing, and maintaining a virtualization infrastructure. The certification is relevant to anyone interested in validating their skills on Microsoft virtualization technologies. The course also has some relevance to IT decision makers who will determine which virtualization product to implement in their business.

"The new Microsoft Certified Specialist: Server Virtualization with Hyper-V and System Center certification will help ensure suitability qualified individuals utilize Hyper-V to get maximum value and resilience. Using all the tools and techniques taught in the new course content. Fundamentally, by attending this course, you will learn the skills you need to deploy and manage a Microsoft Server Virtualization infrastructure in an enterprise environment - properly.
