About CloudCover

 

Why we do what we do

Working in different areas of IT consulting for over 20 years, Brent knows the frustration and hassle companies constantly face with IT problems. When technology does not work for your business, it’s not only frustrating and time consuming, it’s downright expensive.

Your employees can’t do their jobs when their technology doesn’t work. Brent saw a better solution to make businesses run seamlessly with less effort and less cost. So he started CloudCover to successfully provide everything your business needs to run a cost effective, hassle free, well-managed and secure IT.

We now support companies and non-profits of all facets and sizes to keep their IT running smoothly by proactively maintaining. We pride ourselves on always being reliable, responsive and trusted. We are your IT department, for less cost and with more expertise.

70-417 In-Depth Review: Upgrading your Skills to Windows Server 2012

The goal of this book is not to introduce or thoroughly explain the material covered on the 70-417 exam. Rather, the aim of this book is to provide an in-depth review for those already familiar with the material. It reduces the number of surprise questions that often appear on a Microsoft exam -- questions that can make test takers wonder exactly what exam objectives would have led them to study the material in question.
