In the IT field there are times when a person that already has certification in any of HP's entry-level technologies that wants to upgrade their older certification into something more current. It is for that reason that the HP2-E49: Technical Essentials of HP Servers, Storage and Networking - Upgrade certification exam was created. Those that already possess the APP - HP SMB Solutions (2010) would be upgraded to HP Technical Certified 1 - SMB Solutions (2012). Those that have certification in APP - HP Enterprise Solutions (2010) would be upgraded to this certification: HP Technical Certified 2 - Enterprise Solutions (2012). Technical presales specialists that are market-aligned and provide the necessary support to the sales teams will need to have been involved in the field for one or more years before taking this exam. The SMB in this instance refers to small-to-medium businesses.
There are three main sections in this exam - HP2-E49 - that deal with Choosing Converged Infrastructure Server Elements, Choosing Converged Infrastructure Storage Elements and Choosing HP Networking Elements for a Converged Infrastructure. Participants are asked questions about some of the following items:
1. HP entry-level and mid-range servers
2. ProLiant high-end and Multi-Node Servers
3. The value proposition of any HP server
4. HP storage value propositions and systems positioning
5. HP NAS and DAS solutions
6. Describe the architecture of HP Networking
7. Explain what storage marketing is
If you are looking for an awesome study guide then I recommend TestsForge. I'm sure they are consistent across the board so whatever test you have to take they probably have it. I had to take test HP HP2-E49: Technical Essentials of HP Servers, Storage and Networking Upgrade and I did a great job when I took it. Don't misunderstand me and think you don't have to do anything. You still have to commit to studying but they made it a lot more convenient and so easy. Not to mention that it is well worth every penny. But the great thing is that the price is very reasonable, especially when you consider the quality. Great product.

Definitely not a waste of time
I didn't want to waste my time. I needed to pass my HP HP2-E49: Technical Essentials of HP Servers, Storage and Networking Upgrade but I didn't want to get ripped off with some useless study guide. Well, I am definitely glad I signed up with TestsForge. Their information was the most up-to-date and this was exactly what I needed for work. Studying was made a heck of a lot easier. I was able to tailor the material that I needed to concentrate on. The practice tests were awesome; a different one each time. By the time it came to take the real test, I was ready and confident. Sure enough, I passed on my first try.
