Hi,

I received the following mail from Linkedin Server+ Group, apparently CompTIA is planning for a new certificate..

I will be waiting for the Beta icon_lol.gif
Calling All Storage Networking Experts!
CompTIA is Building a Storage Networking Credential, and you are invited to help.

CompTIA, the world leader in vendor-neutral IT credentials, with over 1.25 million IT professionals certified, is building a certification examination in storage networking and information management. It will be called “CompTIA Storage+”, and it is scheduled to be released in 2011. Complementing the industry leading Network+, Server+, and Security+, the new “CompTIA Storage+” will be a global credential validating skills and knowledge in the fast-growing field of storage networking and information management IT disciplines.

We are looking for Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) who can validate the skills and knowledge required to perform the tasks of a storage network administrator/manager, and who have extensive and current experience in networked storage, information management, disaster recovery and business continuity. Such experience is normally the result of serving as a storage networking administrator, manager, or data center administrator for a mid- to large-size organization.

When: July 13-16, 2010
Location: CompTIA Headquarters, Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois
Logistics: During the Job Task Analysis Workshop SME’s will meet from Tuesday-Friday from 9 am (central time) until 5pm, working continuously to develop an examination blueprint that is an accurate reflection of the skills and knowledge necessary to manage a storage network infrastructure and the information assets of an organization.

Expense Policy: SME’s are responsible for their own travel and lodging expenses; CompTIA will compensate SME’s with a stipend of $300/day for their contributions, and pay for an evening meal and luncheon meals.

Be a part of a brand-new, vendor-neutral credential that promises to be a global leader in validating knowledge and experience in storage networking and information management IT practice area.

Application Process: All SME’s are required to submit their current resumes/c.v. to [email protected] for consideration. Only those professionals currently working as practitioners in the storage networking/information management disciplines should apply. For additional information please see CompTIA Exam Development .

    This sounds cool. I wonder if they are going to hook up with the SNIA at some point, like they did with LPI for the new linux+. I think I would take this one.

    It is simple, someone in the forum will some how know about the beta, and start a thread about it :D.

    Then you have to register through CompTIA's site and wait.

    Then they will send you a mail that you have been selected and ask if you are interested in a voucher for the Beta.

    If you accept, they send you a voucher, no strings or prerequisites attached.

    My PDI+, DHTI+ and Server+ are Beta's, I had a Linux+ voucher but I passed because I was not ready to take the exam, I got them all the same way.

    Last time I checked the beta's were free. You just have to sign-up when they offer them. Hopefully it's not like the server+ beta I took.

    For those who are new here, a link to it.

  • UnixGuyUnixGuy Are we having fun yet? Mod Posts: 4,147 Mod
    I'm not sure if I'm gonna take this one.

    I noticed a significant overlap between CompTIA Server+ & SNIA SCSP exams .


    So now we will have two vendor neutral storage certs: SNIA and Storage+ ....
    Goal: MBA, Jan 2021

    Seeing how Storage plus will be "powered" by SNIA I'd imagine that there would be a lot of the same objectives.

    I am going for this when the beta comes out.

    Who knows, they may do the same thing with the Storage+ certification as they did with the Linux+ and LPI. Two certs for the price of one. Either way a storage cert is a big part of my winter studies next year. Yes I am planning that far ahead.

    I knew it. I wish I knew where I said it so I could prove it.

    What you mean this comment?
    This sounds cool. I wonder if they are going to hook up with the SNIA at some point, like they did with LPI for the new linux+. I think I would take this one.

    Look on page one of this thread I don't want you to stress over it :)icon_lol.gif

    I think CompTIA is done going it alone on new certs.; they cost too much to develop.

    Lol. I knew Comptia's lazy butts were going to use the SNIA to make their "Storage+". I just like the new Linux+. I'm ok with that though icon_thumright.gif I would still take the beta. That and the Advanced Security beta as well.
