17 hours

CompTIA Server+ (SK0-005): Server Components

  • Server technicians are now responsible for both on-premises and cloud-based servers. There are many factors to consider when managing these environments. Learn how to plan for server component configuration and environmental conditions in this thorough course.
  • Explore how servers solve business problems. Examine server firmware components, such as Basic Input Output System (BIOS) settings and its successor, Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI). Then, practice configuring BIOS settings.
  • Next, examine server form factors that help determine the space needed in an equipment rack. Study the roles that CPU, RAM, buses, and interfaces play in a server environment. Plan server power draw and server room HVAC and fire suppression. And learn how to prevent static charge damage to sensitive electronic components.
  • Upon completion, you'll be able to better plan for specific server environments and requirements. You'll also be more prepared for the CompTIA Server+ SK0-005 certification exam.

CompTIA Server+ (SK0-005): Configuring Server Components

  • Virtualization has become a foundation for on-premises and cloud computing. Therefore server administrators and data center technicians need to know how to configure virtual machine (VM) CPU and RAM settings. Take this mostly hands-on course to learn what's involved in virtualization.
  • Start by exploring how hypervisors relate to virtual machines (VMs). Distinguish between the two types of hypervisors. And look into hypervisor hardening.
  • Getting hands-on, practice configuring virtual CPUs for VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V VMs. Manage CPU settings for AWS and Azure. And configure memory, or RAM, for VMware Workstation, Microsoft Hyper-V, and AWS and Azure instances in alignment with IT workload requirements.
  • Upon completion, you'll be able to plan and configure the setup for both on-premises and cloud VMs. You'll also be more prepared for the CompTIA Server+ SK0-005 certification exam.

CompTIA Server+ (SK0-005): Servers & Cloud Computing

  • Cloud computing has become increasingly common in the second and third decades of the 20th century, with no signs of cloud adoption slowing down. Therefore, as someone working in a server environment, you'll need to be confident in your understanding of cloud computing characteristics, tools, and service agreements.
  • Use this course to bring your cloud computing acumen up to speed. Explore the benefits and characteristics of cloud computing. Examine various cloud types, including public, private, hybrid, and community clouds.
  • Moving along, practice using GUI (graphical user interface) and CLI (command line interface) tools to manage cloud services. Then, examine various cloud service-level agreements.
  • When you're done, you'll be able to distinguish cloud deployment types and SLAs for cloud services. You'll also be more prepared for the CompTIA Server+ SK0-005 certification exam.

CompTIA Server+ (SK0-005): Deploying Cloud IaaS

  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) concerns storage, networking, firewalls, virtual machines, and other cloud services. To be at the top of their game, server admins should know how to deploy various IaaS solutions.
  • Learn how to deploy IaaS solutions related to storage, networking, and virtual machines in this wide-spanning course. First, get a theoretical overview of IaaS. Then, practice deploying AWS and Microsoft Azure cloud storage solutions, virtual networks, and Windows and Linux virtual machines (VMs). After that, create a custom cloud-based VM.
  • Next, deploy cloud services using cloud automation templates. And finally, use role-based access control (RBAC) and cloud policies to limit the cloud administrative activities available to cloud technicians.
  • When you're done, you'll be able to deploy several IaaS solutions and restrict cloud server access. You'll also be more prepared for the CompTIA Server+ SK0-005 certification exam.

CompTIA Server+ (SK0-005): Deploying Cloud PaaS & SaaS

  • Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS)

  • are two popular and valuable cloud service models. Both play a
  • unique role in managing certain aspects of cloud computing. If
  • you're an IT professional working in server environments, you need
  • to know what these two cloud service models entail. Take this
  • course to learn all about PaaS and SaaS solutions. Furthermore,
  • practice deploying databases in the AWS and Microsoft Azure clouds.
  • Configure a SaaS cloud solution. Use an automation template to
  • deploy a PaaS solution. And use several strategies and tools to
  • keep cloud computing costs to a minimum. Upon course completion,
  • you'll be able to deploy PaaS and SaaS solutions and control cloud
  • computing costs. This course also helps prepare you for the CompTIA
  • Server+ SK0-005 certification exam.

CompTIA Server+ (SK0-005): Server Storage

  • Many storage solutions and characteristics available on-premises

  • are also available in the cloud. These storage solutions are often
  • primarily based on the hard disk drive (HDD) and solid state drive
  • (SSD) technologies. Learn about HDD and SDD as well as other
  • technologies in this technical course. In addition to a theoretical
  • explanation of HDD and SDD storage, learn how to configure virtual
  • HDD and SSD disks for cloud virtual machines. Configure cloud files
  • in various cloud storage tiers. Examine when NAS (network-attached
  • storage) and SAN (storage area network) storage should be used and
  • how RAID (Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks) is used. Then,
  • practice configuring software RAID in Windows and Linux. Upon
  • completion, you'll be able to work with HDD and SDD storage as well
  • as NAS, SANs, and software RAID levels. This course also helps
  • prepare you for the CompTIA Server+ SK0-005 certification exam.

CompTIA Server+ (SK0-005): Server Roles

  • A crucial part of deploying and managing physical and virtual servers is determining the proper licensing requirements. Factors to consider are the number of physical or virtual CPUs and concurrently connected users. Find out more about server roles and licensing in this theory and practice-based course.
  • Explore various server roles and the licensing requirements for specific server use cases. Look at the ways servers can be installed. And see how scripting environments can not only automate server deployment but also help with ongoing server management.
  • Moving on, practice creating a Linux BASH shell script, a Windows PowerShell script, and a Python script.
  • Upon completion, you'll be able to plan server role deployments and licensing requirements and use scripting to automate server management. You'll also be more prepared for the CompTIA Server+ SK0-005 certification exam.

CompTIA Server+ (SK0-005): Role-specific Server Deployment

  • Specific server roles have different uses and software installation requirements. Server technicians need to know about these as well as how to manage servers locally and remotely. Use this mostly practical course to learn what's involved in managing servers and deploying server roles.
  • Examine several GUI and command-line management tools and standards. Then, practice installing a Windows and Linux on-premises virtual machine (VM). Remotely manage the Windows server using RDP and the Linux server through SSH. And learn how to configure SSH public key authentication.
  • Moving on, deploy specific server roles, such as an email, web, hypervisor, and update server. Finally, configure VMs in the cloud.
  • When you're done, you'll be able to install on-premises VMs, manage servers remotely, deploy server roles, and enable server updating. You'll also be more prepared for the CompTIA Server+ SK0-005 certification exam.

CompTIA Server+ (SK0-005): Network Directory Services

  • A network directory service uses a distributed database, which

  • contains various objects, replicated among multiple servers. When
  • working with servers, you need to know how to manage these
  • directory services. Take this mostly hands-on course to learn how
  • to achieve this. Discover how Microsoft Active Directory works.
  • Then, try your hand at creating a new forest and domain in an
  • on-premises virtualized environment. Join computers to the domain
  • for centralized authentication and management purposes. And plan
  • Group Policy settings for domain users and computers. Moving on,
  • inventory servers before configuring a cloud-based directory
  • service and joining devices to it. When you're done, you'll be able
  • to plan, deploy, and manage on-premises and cloud-based directory
  • services. You'll also be more prepared for the CompTIA Server+
