Hello and welcome to my course on Windows server 2019. My name is Alex. I have a full-time job as a system administrator at a local MSP. Over the years I was tasked by my employers to get certified in different technologies that were used by us internally or by our clients. So, I've got MCSA: server 2012 and MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure and a few more certifications from other vendors. I have been working in IT for over 8 years. I have extensive experience working for MSPs where I was exposed to a lot of different Microsoft server environments. I started working as a helpdesk desk support representative and now I primarily take care of infrastructure and servers at my current company. Most of the environments I get to manage run Windows Server 2012. I have experience in networking both physical (running wires) and configuring switches, routers, and firewalls. Over the last few years, we virtualized about 90% of our clients using VMWare and storage solutions from HP. We had to migrate a lot of old physical servers running Windows server 2003 or 2008 to new VMs running server 2012 or 2016. We also had to migrate a few Exchange servers from 2003 and 2007 to Exchange 2010 and 2016. At our company, we host servers for some of the clients and we also provide email hosting using Exchange 2016. Another responsibility I have at my current job is security, which includes antivirus, firewalls, making sure there are no open ports that potentially can be used to get into the network from the outside. All of the material in this course is something I had to do on the job for different clients throughout my career. You don't need to have a job in IT to start learning Microsoft Windows server 2019. All you need is a 64-bit PC with 8 GB of memory and 100 GB of space on the drive. In this course, I will try to provide you with the skills and knowledge that can help you to land a system administrator or a similar IT position.
