Certkingdom Releases Small Business Server 2012 Training

by admin ·

Certkingdom, Inc the global leader in professional computer training, announced the release of its new Small Business Server 2012 Training.

Just because a business is small, doesn’t mean it can get by without a business server. Microsoft’s Small Business Server 2012 offers small to medium size businesses an updated suite of powerful server software including Windows Server 2008 R2, Microsoft Exchange 2010 and SharePoint Foundation 2010, all in a single package. Businesses that need a robust database server can add the Small Business Server 2012 Premium Add-On, which provides a SQL Server 2008 R2 for Small Business server license as well.

Microsoft’s SBS 2012 is a full-featured server environment for small businesses. SBS 2012 offers a lower cost server solution without the additional overhead and complexity of the company’s flagship Windows Server product.

Certkingdom’s SBS 2012 Training instructor Ed Liberman said, “SBS 2012 is a cost effective way to get a lot of services on a single server. It’s a great tool for making small businesses more efficient, as one administrator can handle all of the server tasks, whether it’s managing the network, Exchange or SharePoint.”

While Microsoft has done an admirable job of simplifying the installation and management of SBS 2012, software this powerful requires some technical knowledge to maximize its potential for small businesses. That is why Certkingdom’s first to market SBS 2012 training is so valuable.

Certkingdom’s Small Business Server 2012 Training course teaches network administrators and small business owners how to install, configure, manage and optimize an SBS 2012 environment.

Matt Elias, Certkingdom’s Product Team Manager, said, “SBS 2012 is a collaboration of different Microsoft products that are designed to work together seamlessly.
