Eucalyptus Certified Administrator on Eucalyptus 3
The Eucalyptus Certified Administrator on Eucalyptus 3 (EUCA3) certification tests potential candidates on their ability to perform essential design, install, configure, and manage functions for a Eucalyptus 3 deployment.
A candidate for the EUCA3 certification will have extensive knowledge of the content in the Eucalyptus 3: Design, Build and Manage course. The typical successful candidate also will have prior administration experience in one or more of the following areas: Linux administration, virtualization administration, storage administration, or network administration.
There are no formal prerequisites for the exam. Extensive practical knowledge and hands-on experience working with Eucalyptus software is strongly recommended.
In the real world you do not have to memorize random facts to solve complex problems. You have access to external resources, and we believe the certification test should reflect real world capabilities to the closest degree possible rather than test your ability to memorize small details in documentation.
While taking the exam a digital copy of the Eucalyptus 3: Design, Build, and Manage course book will be available inside the testing environment. Blank paper, pens, pencils, and calculators will be allowed to be present and are strongly suggested during the exam. Sorry, no pre-printed materials, extra computers, laptops, tablets, smart phones, or similar devices are allowed.
This exam will be administered worldwide through Kryterion and will be delivered via the OLP technology suite. Taking the exam will require the installation of security software on your computer, a web camera with a good view of the entire testing area during the exam, and a microphone for communicating with the remote exam proctor who will monitor you during the exam. Test security will potentially include forms of visual identity validation, as well as visual sweeps of the room in which the exam is being taken. All test sessions will be recorded and will be subject to review, and certifications granted can be revoked if exam security protocols are not followed. Read more about details on exam requirements.
