In addition to the A+ certification, CompTIA also offers a computer server-related certification, which steps up from basic PC hardware, software, and networking topics to the more demanding, powerful, and expensive capabilities in the same vein usually associated with server systems.
The CompTIA Server+ credential goes beyond basic topics to include coverage of more advanced storage systems, IT environments, and disaster recovery and business continuity topics. It also puts strong emphasis on best practices and procedures for server problem diagnosis and troubleshooting. Although Server+ is vendor-neutral in coverage, organizations that include HP, Dell, IBM, Xerox, and Lenovo either require or recommend CompTIA Server+ for their own server technicians.

A+ Certification recommended
CompTIA Server+ validates the knowledge and skills of advanced IT technicians. It is an international, vendor-neutral certification for individuals with 18-24 months of experience with Industry Standard Server Architecture (ISSA) technology. CompTIA Server+ certifies technical knowledge in areas such as RAID, SCSI and multiple CPUs, as well as capabilities with server issues, including disaster recovery. Although not a prerequisite, it is recommended that CompTIA Server+ candidates hold a CompTIA A+ certification.
