Microsoft is readying two new Windows Server certifications


Last year, When Microsoft announced plans to retire its MCSA, MCSD and MCSE certifications, many who had cut their teeth on learning the intricacies of on-premises server technologies were not too happy. Today, September 16, Microsoft is undoing that drastic "no way but the cloud way" path by introducing a couple of new certifications that revolve around Windows Server. Officials made the new certification plans public during todays Windows Server Summit; a virtual event focused on the recently introduced Windows Server 2022 product. There will be two new exams for those who want to obtain Windows Server Hybrid Administrator Associate certifications: These certifications will focus on compute, identity, storage, networking, management, security, migration, high availability, disaster recovery and monitoring and troubleshooting. Microsoft emphasises the hybrid piece in these exams, so there will also be a focus on Azure services roles in all of these areas.
