Who Should Take Windows Server 2019 Training?
This Getting Started with Windows Server 2019 training is considered associate-level Microsoft training, which means it was designed for server administrators. This Server 2019 skills course is valuable for new IT professionals with at least a year of experience with server administration and experienced server administrators looking to validate their Microsoft skills.
New or aspiring server administrators. If you're new to server administration, you may not be familiar with the cyclical nature of server OS upgrades. Every couple years, there's a new or different upgrade to core or periphery services, and people drag their feet over whether to upgrade, but then often are rushed at the last minute to make the upgrade because no one took the time to get trained and familiar with the new tech. This training gives you the opportunity to be ready for Windows Server 2019 when your organization makes the change -- or feel comfortable with it if they already have.
Experienced server administrators. If you've been a server administrator for several years, there's a lot to like about Windows Server 2019. It's cloud-focused, it has lots of new features -- from security to cross-managed Azure services -- and its do-it-yourself software-defined storage is a tremendous cost-saving solution. If your organization is making the jump to Server 2019, this training can make sure you're familiar with the new operating system's quirks and tools.
