Server technicians are now responsible for both on-premises and cloud-based servers. There are many factors to consider when managing these environments. Learn how to plan for server component configuration and environmental conditions in this thorough course. Explore how servers solve business problems. Examine server firmware components, such as Basic Input Output System (BIOS) settings and its successor, Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI). Then, practice configuring BIOS settings. Next, examine server form factors that help determine the space needed in an equipment rack. Study the roles that CPU, RAM, buses, and interfaces play in a server environment. Plan server power draw and server room HVAC and fire suppression. And learn how to prevent static charge damage to sensitive electronic components. Upon completion, you'll be able to better plan for specific server environments and requirements. You'll also be more prepared for the CompTIA Server+ SK0-005 certification exam.
