Microsoft Embraces Linux Foundation To Create New Certification
During 2015, Microsoft made it clear that Linux is no longer the foe of yesterday. The company has embraced the open-sourced operating system and offers it to customers who use its Azure cloud services and today the company is taking its offering one step further.
To help identify individuals who have an expertise with using Linux and Microsoft’s cloud platform, the company has worked with the Linux Foundation to create a new certification. Called the Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA) Linux on Azure certification, the certificate will be issued by Microsoft starting today, December 9th, 2015.
To be eligible to receive the cert, you must pass bot the Microsoft Exam 70-533 (Implementing Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Solutions) and the Linux Foundation Certified System Administrator (LFCS) exam.
The creation of this certificate shows Microsoft’s serious commitment to the operating system on its cloud infrastructure. With all of the pieces now in place for individuals to become certified in Linux on Azure (LOA?), it becomes a marketable skill and also a new avenue for Azure re-sellers to help differentiate their services by having certified technicians.
