CompTIA Cloud+ validates the skills you need to maintain and optimize cloud infrastructure services.
Cloud+ covers the increased diversity of knowledge, skills and abilities required of system administrators to validate what is necessary to perform effectively in data center jobs.
CompTIA Cloud+ views cloud-based infrastructure services as an increasingly important piece of an organization’s IT systems.
It is the only vendor-neutral, performance-based certification covering more than a specific vendor or a single function — such as security or networking — to help you better realize the return on investment of cloud infrastructure services.
CompTIA Cloud+ reflects an emphasis on incorporating and managing cloud technologies as part of broader systems operations. It assumes a candidate will weave together solutions that meet specific business needs and work in a variety of different industries.
It includes new technologies to support the changing cloud market as more organizations depend on cloud-based technologies to run mission critical systems, now that hybrid and multi-cloud have become the norm.
The refreshed CompTIA Cloud+ also includes an entire objective dedicated to high-availability – the goal of ensuring around-the-clock access to all your data and software as a service (SaaS) applications. This highlights the move toward cloud-hosted solutions throughout enterprise and small-business.
CompTIA recognizes that in a work-from-home world, it is critical for remote employees to have secure, uninterrupted access to data, applications and the solutions that allow business to succeed. CompTIA Cloud+ validates the skills and abilities that make this possible.
Overall, the CompTIA Cloud+ exam tests candidates in the following areas of cloud computing:
Cloud architecture and design
Securing the cloud
Automation and virtualization
Optimization of cloud environments
