Microsoft Windows Server is a multi-purpose server designed to increase reliability and flexibility of a network infrastructure. Windows Server is the paramount tool used by enterprises in their datacenter and desktop strategy. The most recent versions of Windows Server also provide both server and client virtualization. Its ubiquity in the enterprise results in the need for networking professionals who know how to plan, design, implement, operate, and troubleshoot networks relying on Windows Server. Microsoft Learning is preparing the next round of its Windows Server Certification program with exams covering the new version of the software, Windows Server 2012. The exams and certification path change significantly from the previous version of Windows Server. This provides an opportunity for the MS line to capitalize on the dual disruption of brand-new software and brand-new certifications.
