Windows Server 2016: Basic Storage

Microsoft via edX

This course may be unavailable.


Storage is a key component in deploying Microsoft Windows Server. As users and applications constantly work with and create data, most organizations require a large amount of storage.

In this course, you’ll learn to navigate various tools and techniques such as disks, volumes, file systems, permissions, sharing, administration, and monitoring. Through videos, discussions, hands-on labs, and assessments you will put in place the essential storage requirements for your Windows Server environment.

As a Windows Server System Administrator, you must be able to determine the type of storage your organization needs. You’ll also need the skills required to manage disks, volumes, and file systems. You’ll use the File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) to manage common disk and file management tasks. You’ll secure storage using BitLocker and EFS. You’ll also configure shared storage, such as NFS shares and SMB shares.

This course will teach you all of those necessary skills and help you improve your capacity to handle disks and volumes, and secure Windows Server storage. It will also prepare you for Microsoft certification tests and badges – everything you’d need in an introductory job in Windows Server administration.
