About

This certification validates that you have the skills needed to run a highly efficient and modern data center, identity management, systems management, virtualization, storage, and networking.

Who should take this exam?

This exam is part one of a series of two exams that test the skills and knowledge necessary to design, implement, and maintain a Windows Server 2012 infrastructure in an enterprise scaled, highly virtualized environment. Passing this exam validates a candidate's ability to plan, configure, and implement the Windows Server 2012 services, such as server deployment, server virtualization, and network access and infrastructure. Passing this exam along with the other exam confirms that a candidate has the skills and knowledge necessary for designing, deploying, and maintaining infrastructure services in a Windows Server 2012 environment.

You have to pass only one of the following exams:

  • Securing Windows Server 2016 (70-744)

  • Implementing a Software-Defined Datacenter (70-745)

  • Designing and Implementing a Server Infrastructure (70-413)

  • Implementing an Advanced Server Infrastructure (70-414)

  • Configuring and Operating a Hybrid Cloud with Microsoft Azure Stack (70-537) Coming Soon
