Exam description

This exam tests the candidate's ability to display competency in the area of software defined infrastructure (SDI), including designing HPE Software Defined Infrastructure solutions, and the candidate's ability to analyze workloads and prescribe the appropriate infrastructure platform, including compute, storage, and networking.
 

Ideal candidate for this exam

This certification is targeted to solution architects who have experience designing and implementing a complex solution and want to validate their skills to leverage HPE solutions in multi-site environments. Candidates typically define business needs, propose, and may deploy the solution.

Exam contents

This exam has 50 questions. Here are types of questions to expect:
  • Discrete Option Multiple Choice

Advice to help you take this exam

  • Complete the training and review all course materials and documents before you take the exam.
  • Use HPE Press study guides and additional reference materials; study guides, practice tests, and HPE books.
  • Exam items are based on expected knowledge acquired from job experience, an expected level of industry standard knowledge, or other prerequisites (events, supplemental materials, etc.).
  • Successful completion of the course or study materials alone, does not ensure you will pass the exam.
What to Expect with Discrete Option Multiple Choice (DOMC) exams:

This exam uses the DOMC question format. It is quite different than traditional multiple choice exams. It is designed to increase exam fairness, to protect exam integrity, your exam scores and your time.

How is DOMC different?

  • Instead of presenting all the answer options together at one time, DOMC questions present answer options one at a time, at random
  • When an answer option is presented, you select either Yes or No to indicate if the option is correct or not. This process repeats until the question concludes
  • You may see more than one correct option
  • You may receive as few as one option for each test question or several options
  • Once you move forward, you may not go back and change your response to a previous option

We created an HPE sample test to help you practice using this DOMC test format. During registration, you will be asked to confirm that you have completed the HPE DOMC sample test and understand how this exam will perform.

Be sure to complete the supporting resources and review all materials and documents before you take the exam.  Successful completion of the supporting resources alone does not ensure you will pass the exam.
