Over the last couple of weeks myself and Andrew have been out talking to IT Pro’s about Windows Server and Microsoft Virtualization platform. It’s clear to us that many of you have not had much experience with Hyper-V or are struggling to keep up with the pace of change that is going on in the virtualization space. We definitely hear you!
With that in mind we have two new programs that you may have not heard of that were recently announced over on the In the Cloud blog.
The first new program is a new Microsoft Virtualization Certification that has been designed around Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V and System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager. This certification is geared towards folks that already have skills in VMware technologies or may have a VCP.
The second program, which compliments the first is a brand new website called Virtualization2. This site has a ton of resources designed to help you learn more about Hyper-V and get certified on the new R2 wave!
I encourage you to check out these new resources because as we all know it’s increasingly becoming a multi-hypervisor world out their and if you’re going to accelerate your career you will need to have skills in both platforms. So to wrap up:
- It’s an increasingly multi-hypervisor world and with nearly two thirds of businesses on more than one virtualization platform, adding Hyper-V to your skillset can help improve your career options.
- The new Microsoft virtualization certification can validate your skills to prove your expertise goes beyond VMware.
- Learn, try and get certified on Microsoft virtualization technologies at no cost, with free training via the Microsoft Virtual Academy and a voucher to take the cert exam for free.
And for those that haven’t been to one of our current IT Camps we will see you there soon as we still have 4 cities to go on this current round!
