New Microsoft server and desktop virtualization exams

Microsoft is working in new exams on their latest server and desktop virtualization solutions. The info below is published at

Many of you have been asking about virtualization exams for some time now. Well, the first of the virtualization exams is entering beta soon, so I guess it’s time to open the box and let you see what’s inside.

Here are the exams we currently have on the development schedule:

  • 70-659: TS: Windows Server 2008 R2, Server Virtualization
  • 70-669: TS: Desktop Virtualization
  • 70-693: Pro: Windows Server 2008 R2, Virtualization Administrator

Passing all three exams will earn you the MCITP: Windows Server 2008 R2, Virtualization Administrator credential.

We’ll be opening registration for the 70-659 beta soon. As with every beta exam, seats are limited. We’ll be using our MSL SME database to recruit for the first round of beta participants. For your best chance of participating, create a SME profile by filling out the survey on the MSL SME site on Microsoft Connect. (See this post for more information.) If you have already created your SME profile, make sure that you update it to reflect your interest in taking a beta exam and your experience with virtualization.

A few days before registration opens, we’ll send a notification to qualified SMEs through Connect. The notification will include the beta code. If you have any questions about setting up your SME profile, feel free to e-mail
