What’s New

The CompTIA Server+ certification exam (SK0-004) was updated in 2015 to include virtualization and emphasize new storage techniques.

In the industry today, cloud-based network solutions require virtualization skills to operate systems remotely. Additionally, storage systems have simplified with the growing popularity of network-attached storage (NAS), which is far easier to setup than previous Storage Area Networks (SANs). For this reason, we added additional storage components to the CompTIA Server+ (SK0-004) exam.
