Exchange Server remains a mission-critical and popular messaging platform, even as Microsoft begins to transition customers to cloud services like Office 365. This series can help you learn the skills needed to manage even advanced Exchange environments.
This series will teach you skills that include configuring and managing mail transport, the Exchange mailbox role, and client access to Exchange. You will also learn about overall Exchange infrastructure design. Advanced skills include Unified Messaging, site resiliency, and advanced security. Additionally, you'll gain insight on compliance-related features such as archiving and e-discovery.
This series is intended for Microsoft Exchange administrators working in an on-premises environment. However, it's important to note that demand for new Exchange administrators is expected to fall off in coming years; this is not a recommended career track for someone just entering the industry.
Before you can begin your MCSE: SharePoint certification, you must first obtain your MCSA: Office 365 credential. This series is perfect if you're already managing an on-premises Microsoft Exchange infrastructure. However, please note that Microsoft is actively trying to push customers to Office 365 for messaging, and there is some question as to whether a future on-premises version of Exchange will even exist. If you're just entering this career track, a focus on Office 365 may be more beneficial in the long-term. We expect the demand for Exchange administrators to be reduced over the coming years.
This series helps prepare you for two Microsoft exams: Core Solutions of Microsoft Exchange Server and Advanced Solutions of Microsoft Exchange Server. You'll learn a variety of planning, implementation, maintenance, and administration topics suitable for on-premises Exchange deployments. Note that Pluralsight's training is focused more on real world, production-level education for Exchange Server. While we do offer training specific to the Core Solutions exam, our other training is designed to both prepare you for exam objectives and to help you learn to use Exchange in the real world. We recommend supplementing your training with hands-on, on-the-job experience to best prepare for the exam.
