Monitoring and Operating a Private Cloud with System Center 2012

During Microsoft Management Summit (MMS) earlier this year I did the beta version of 70-246 Monitoring and Operating a Private Cloud with System Center 2012. The exam was quite deep and included a number of the System Center 2012 components. I was a bit surprised about the exam, it was really covering a number of the System Center 2012 components and I think it would be difficult to pass without some real world hands-on experience. The exam measure the following areas

  • Configure Data Center Process Automation
  • Deploy Resource Monitoring
  • Monitoring Resources
  • Configure and Maintain Service Management
  • Manage Configuration and Protection

More info about the exam here.

I recommend everyone working with System Center 2012 and private cloud to take the training and do the exam. Microsoft Certification helps you stand out, you demonstrate your expertise to customers and employers, special these really deep certifications.
