The course is part three, of a series of three courses, which provides the skills and knowledge necessary to implement a core Windows Server 2012 R2 Infrastructure in an existing enterprise environment. The three courses in total will collectively cover implementing, managing, maintaining and provisioning services and infrastructure in a Windows Server 2012 R2 environment. While there is some cross-over in skillset and tasks across the three courses this course will primarily cover advanced configuration and services tasks necessary to deploy, manage and maintain a Windows Server 2012 R2 infrastructure, such as identity management and identity federation, network load balancing, business continuity and disaster recovery, fault tolerance and rights management.
Labs in this course are based on the General Availability release of Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1.
