The CWMA (Novell Certified Workload Management Administrator) is targeted towards individuals who are capable of using PlateSpin Migrate, PlateSpin Recon, and PlateSpin Protect technologies. A certified CWMA is able to handle the installation, configuration, and troubleshooting of these products. Additionally, this certification acknowledges a professional's ability to handle server consolidation, hardware migration, and disaster recovery.
As someone who is certified in the use of PlateSpin technologies, a CWMA has advanced knowledge of data center automation solutions. Typically, companies employ a CWMA because they are able to help devise solutions which lower costs and improve service while also solving the company's critical data center challenges.
In order to achieve the CWMA certification, candidates are encouraged to take the Certified Linux Administrator 11 course, PlateSpin Workload Management Administration. However, the course is entirely optional. The only requirement for the certification is successfully passing 050-724 - PlateSpin Workload Management Administration exam.
