Developed and tested validation mechanics for [Analytics Platform System](https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/sql-server/analytics-platform-system) during installation. While A.P.S is installing it needs to validate hardware before getting to far. What this validation does is verify certain aspects of hardware meet validate criteria for the services to be installed. It validates things such as hard drive status, all drives recognizable, all network connectivity, and more.
These validation tests prevent failures of installation to happen very late in the setup process. This allows fixes to be made much quicker and the system to be up and running faster.
