Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert Server 2012: Server Infrastructure
Passed my Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert Server 2012: Server Infrastructure cert today 🙂
So not surprisingly I was OK with the Identity and Access Solutions bit (that’s my job after all), but I knew I needed to learn more about System Center 2012, particularly Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM). I bought some new kit for my lab and have learned a lot about this stuff, it’s pretty cool actually. I think it’s even ready to start displacing VMware (assuming you can get over the “Microsoft virtualization? No chance!” cries from the enterprise architecture teams). SMB 3.0 is pretty cool too, just run your VMs off a network share now (cf ESX and NFS).
All in all this “New” MCSE is tougher to achieve than the “Old” MCSE, or the MCITP for that matter, which I assume was MSFT’s intention.
