New Microsoft certifications

New view for certs.  After doing a full-day session with a local consulting firm on SC2012 and some new Server 2012/HV3.0 features, I am very enthusiastic about the new possibilities.  So, I'll be rebuilding the lab as MS-only in an effort to get a good grasp of Server 2012 and System Center 2012, especially what you can do with Orchestrator and Service Desk.

Unfortunately my MCITP:EA cert doesn't seem to count for much in the new scheme of things, only really counts toward the MCSA2012 cert, same as any of the 2008 admin certs, it seems.  

  1. MCSA: Server 2012 - 70-417 - Upgrading your skills to Server 2012
  2. MCSE: Server Infrastructure - 70-413/414 -  (Design&Implement / Adv.Implement)
  3. MCSE: Desktop Infrastructure - 70-415/416 - (Implement desktop infra. / Implement desktop application environments)
  4. MCSE: Private Cloud - 70-246/247 - (Monitoring&Operating / Configuring&Deploying)
That'll keep me busy for a year or two, along with saving up to do the VCP5.  I am thinking I might need to get another host for the lab and run two clusters - one HV3.0, one vSphere5,  then manage both via VMM/vCenter/SC2012.

I would also like to get some sort of VDI going, haven't done much with that.
