Hi, What will be a best certification choice for a LInux/Windows administrator of 10 years experience to move ahead in IT Infrastructure filed.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Bitbyte, I would see your best asset to move ahead right now in the IT field to be your 10 years of experience. The <a href=”http://www.comptia.org/”> Comptia </a> certs especially the A+, N+ will round out a resume nicely. Obtaining your <a href=”http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/le3/le2/le0/le9/learning_certification_type_home.html”>Cisco </a> certs, would also help. There are many resources to help you get your Cisco from places like <a href=”http://www.ciscocert.net/”>This </a> and <a href=”http://www.certforums.co.uk/forums/f15-cisco-certification-forums.html”>This </a>
Good Luck!

Since you are a Linux/Windows admin certs for those OSs will probably be the best ones for you to look towards. On the Windows site you’ll want to look towards the <a href=”http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/mcse/windows2003/default.mspx”>MCSE</a> for Windows 2003 or the <a href=”http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/mcitp/default.mspx”>MCITP</a> for Windows 2008. Most Linux distros have certifications from the vendors. There are also general Linux certifications such as the <a href=”http://certification.comptia.org/linux/”>Linux+</a> certification from Comptia.

I wouldn’t recommend recommend Cisco certs for you unless you work with Cisco gear on a regular basis, or unless you want to move into networking.

    There a bunch of certifications. What areas do you have expertise in? Systems engineer? Network engineering? Once you narrow it down, the certifications will become more obvious to you. You also have to be specific because most of those courses and certs are pretty expensive. Hope this helps! -Schmidtw

    Hi Top of the my list especially for infrastructure, should be to do some virutisation cert as I see it as a technology that will be around for aleast 10 yrs. Try the VCP from VMware, you first need to do the course before you can do the exam.
