This entry-level IT Power Solutions training prepares network admins to manage and maintain PDUs and UPSs.
Power distribution units and uninterruptible power supplies are the backbones of any data center or technology hub because keeping the power flowing is arguably the most fundamentally important job in a data center.
What good is a network or data center without steady and reliable power? Data analysts can't analyze, developers can't code, administrators can't push updates, and security teams can't protect networks if the actual hardware doesn't have power.
The people who know PDUs and UPSs inside and out are valuable assets to any technology team, and this training is how they know which units to select, where to place them, and how to maintain them.
After finishing the videos in this IT Power Solutions training, you'll know how to manage and maintain PDUs and UPSs.
For IT managers, this networking training can be used to onboard new network admins, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a Networking reference resource.
