Finally, after the first info and rumors about the VCDX-Cloud certification, the official page seems to be complete with all the information and all the certification path.

We probably will see first VCDX-Cloud certified people starting from the second half of July 2013.

About the path from VCP-Cloud to VCDX-Cloud we have already discuss about it and mainly it’s the same of traditional VCDX path.

More interesting is the cross-path for current VCDX5-DCV to earn VCDX-Cloud where is only required:

  • Earn both VCAP-CIA and VCAP-CID certifications
  • Submit a successful VCDX-Cloud application

Note: Current VCDX-DCVs do NOT have to defend their design to be certified as VCDX-Cloud. This could be really interesting because some VCDX have already done both VCAP (in the beta period), so they have only to apply for an application!
