Exam Number: CV0-002

The CompTIA Cloud+ certification is an internationally recognized validation of the knowledge required of IT practitioners working in cloud computing environments. The CompTIA Cloud+ CV0-002 exam will certify the successful candidate has the knowledge and skills required to:

  • Understand standard cloud methodologies
  • Implement, maintain and deliver cloud technologies (e.g., network, storage and virtualization technologies
  • Understand aspects of IT security and use industry best practices related to cloud implementations

It is recommended that CompTIA Cloud+ candidates have the following:

  • CompTIA Network+ certification and/or CompTIA Server+ certification, although CompTIA certifications are not required
  • At least 24–36 months of work experience in IT networking, network storage or datacenter administration
  • Familiarity with any major hypervisor technologies for server virtualization, although vendor-specific certifications in virtualization are not required
  • Knowledge of cloud service model (IaaS, Paas, Saas) definitions
  • Knowledge of common cloud deployment model (private, public, hybrid) definitions
  • Hands-on experience with at least one public cloud IaaS platform
