CompTIA Server+ is a vendor-neutral certification that validates your skills in installing, configuring, and managing servers. It focuses on practical knowledge needed to work with servers in data centers, on-site locations, and even hybrid cloud environment.

While both are CompTIA certifications, they focus on different aspects of IT infrastructure. Network+ establishes your skills in setting up and managing computer networks, while Server+ dives deeper into server administration tasks.

CompTIA recommends having A+ certification or equivalent knowledge, along with two years of hands-on experience working in a server environment. However, these aren't strict requirements.
