    What is the MCSE Private Cloud?

    The Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE): Private Cloud certification proves your expertise in managing and implementing Microsoft private cloud computing technologies. With Windows Server and System Center, you will build your Microsoft private cloud solution to optimize IT service delivery and gain the automation and flexibility you need for your IT infrastructure, now and in the future. Earning an MCSE: Private Cloud certification will qualify you for such jobs as server administrator, systems programmer, and network manager.

    To get a MCSE: Private Cloud certification you need to complete these five exams:

    Exam 410: Installing And Configuring Windows Sever 2012
    Exam 411:
    Administering Windows Server 2012

    Configuring Advanced Windows Sever 2012 Services

    After finishing Exam 410411 and 412 you'll earn a Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA): Windows Server 2012 certification. Once you have your MCSA: Windows Server 2012 the next two exams will upgrade that to a MCSE: Private Cloud.

    Exam 246: Monitoring and Operating a Private Cloud with System Center 2012
    Exam 247:
