Storage networking engineers are in high demand in today's workplace. Additionally, IT professionals interested in data center or network backbone related positions are likely to need strong storage networking skills to do their jobs.
CompTIA created the Storage+ certification in partnership with the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA). It is currently considered the leading entry-level storage technology certification exam. The syllabus includes the skills needed to configure basic storage networks for archive, backup, and restore technologies. The exam also covers the basics of disaster recovery and business continuity, application workloads, system integration, storage and system administration, and troubleshooting connectivity issues.
The Storage+ is the perfect kicking off point for interested or curious IT professionals, to help develop skills and knowledge in this area. Consider it before taking any Data Center, Amazon, VMware or NetApp certification. The SNIA have retired their SNIA Certified Storage Professional (SCSP) certification in favor of the Storage+ which guarantees that you are learning about state-of-the-art storage tools and technologies.
