Windows Server Hybrid Administrator Associate certification

At today’s Windows Server Summit 2021, Microsoft just announced two new Windows Server exams, and by passing these exams you will earn the Windows Server Hybrid Administrator Associate certification. The two exams are AZ-800 Administering Windows Server Hybrid Core Infrastructure and AZ-801 Configuring Windows Server Hybrid Advanced Services. This will be a great certification for Windows Server administrators working in a hybrid environment, on-premises, and in Microsoft Azure. Especially when focusing on Windows Server 2022.

The AZ-800 and AZ-801 exams will go into beta towards the end of 2021 and will likely be generally available early in 2022.
