New or aspiring systems administrators. If you're trying to land your first job as a systems administrator, the AZ-801 is a great way to show that you're ready to take on specialized tasks in server administration.

Experienced systems administrators. If you've been working as a systems administrator for several years already, the AZ-801 is how you demonstrate all that specialized knowledge you've picked up over the years. There are lots of server management tasks it's assumed you know how to do, but by taking this Windows Server Hybrid Administrator Associate training, you're proving that you know how to manage failover clustering, for instance, or how to protect virtual machines with Hyper-V replicas.
