Providing Technology Training and Mentoring For Modern Technology Adoption
Course 20412 is part three of a three-course series that includes courses 20410 and 20411. The series provides the skills and knowledge necessary to implement a core Windows Server 2012 infrastructure in an existing enterprise environment. Collectively, the three courses cover implementing, managing, maintaining, and provisioning services and infrastructure in a Windows Server 2012 environment. While there is some content crossover across the three courses, 20412A builds on the knowledge learned in 20410 and 20411, and it primarily covers advanced configuration and service tasks for deploying, managing, and maintaining a Windows Server 2012 infrastructure. This includes identity management, network load balancing, business continuity, disaster recovery, fault tolerance, and rights management.
This course prepares the student for Exam 70-412: Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012 Services.
After completing this course, students will be able to:
This course is intended for IT professionals with hands-on experience implementing, managing, and maintaining a Windows Server 2012 infrastructure in an existing enterprise environment, who wish to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to carry out advanced management and provisioning of services within the Windows Server 2012 environment.
