CompTIA Cloud Essentials definition

Contributor(s): Julia Anderson

CompTIA Cloud Essentials is an entry-level, vendor-neutral cloud certification that evaluates administrators on the following knowledge:

  • Characteristics of cloud services from a business perspective.
  • Business value of cloud computing.
  • Technical perspective and cloud types.
  • Steps to successful cloud adoption.
  • Effect and changes of the cloud on IT service management.
  • Risks and consequences of cloud computing.

These exam objectives were originally developed by ITpreneurs in cooperation with the Cloud Credential Council, a membership body dedicated to vendor-neutral training in cloud computing and comprising companies including IBM, Cisco, EMC, HP and ING. Though not a requirement, CompTIA recommends that exam candidates have at least six months of IT experience.
