I took the AZ-600 Configuring and Operating a Hybrid Cloud with Microsoft Azure Stack Hub exam back in January 2021 when it was in beta. Today, I just got the mail in my inbox informing me that I passed the AZ-600 Configuring and Operating a Hybrid Cloud with Microsoft Azure Stack Hub exam to receive the Microsoft Certified: Azure Stack Hub Operator Associate certification.
My Azure Stack journey began very early in 2015 and back in 2018, I passed the legacy 70-537 Configuring and Operating a Hybrid Cloud with Azure Stack Exam. Now the AZ-600 is the refreshed version on becoming an Azure Stack Hub operator.
What is the Azure Stack Hub Operator Associate certification?
Candidates for the Azure Stack Hub Operator Associate certification are Azure administrators or Azure Stack Hub operators who provide cloud services to end users or customers from within their own datacenter using Azure Stack Hub.Microsoft Learn
Their responsibilities are to plan, deploy, package, update, and maintain the Azure Stack Hub infrastructure. They also offer hybrid cloud resources and requested services and manage infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS).
They serve as part of a larger team dedicated to cloud-based management and security or hybrid environments as part of an end-to-end infrastructure.
Candidates for this certification should have significant experience managing and operating Azure Stack Hub environments. They should have a strong understanding of Azure, in addition to some knowledge of virtualization, networking, and identity management. They need to understand how Azure Stack Hub enables DevOps processes and the hybrid development model.
You can find more information on the certification here. To gain this certification you will need to pass the AZ-600 exam. You can find more about the exam here.

- Provide services (30-35%)
- Implement data center integration (15-20%)
- Manage identity and access (10-15%)
- Manage infrastructure (30-35%)

Thank you very much and congratulations on becoming a Microsoft Azure Administrator! Hope you can make my Global Azure 2021 session :)
Yes, I am working now at Microsoft :)
did you find a cheaper way to prepare for the AZ-600 exam? you need at least a host server or a VM in a nested hyper-v environment to practice, at least 128GB of RAM!
