Validating technical knowledge of Hitachi storage products and technologies is the purpose of the Hitachi Data Systems Foundation Certification. As the title implies, this is an entry-level certification appropriate for IT professionals just beginning to document their expertise, knowledge and skills with Hitachi storage capabilities.
Candidates for the Hitachi Data Systems Foundation Certification have two technical focuses from which to choose. They can pursue a certification that focuses on Hitachi Modular or Enterprise, and the certification focus will determine which exam must be completed. A single test is required for either certification and the applicable exams are as follows:
Hitachi Data Systems Storage Foundations - Modular
Hitachi Data Systems Storage Foundations - Enterprise
Both exams features 60 questions and require a score of 65% or higher for success. An hour is allotted for exam completion in either instance as well.
Exam preparation includes gaining hands on experience with the Hitachi data storage products and technologies in which certification is desired. Training is also available, though it is not an exam prerequisite.
