CompTIA’s Latest Cloud+ Certification and the CV0-001 Exam: Go Higher
While the Cloud Essentials is an entry level certification (candidates need to have as little as 6 months experience), Cloud+ targets experienced network and storage professionals, or data center administrators. As more and more organizations (businesses, governments, non-profits – you name it) move to the cloud, the demand for experienced cloud professionals is sure to grow, and this is exactly what the Cloud+ certification should cover.
This Professional Series certification covers standard methodology required to securely implement and maintain cloud technologies. It validates the knowledge and skills required of IT practitioners working in cloud computing environments, who must understand and deliver cloud infrastructure solutions.
