Reading Time: 2 minutes Also this time I’ll be attending the Dell Enterprise Forum EMEA (this third edition, after London and Paris,  will be in Frankfurt) and will be a good opportunity to spend some time with the technical Dell people, see latest products, hear about the new strategy and new products.

Reading Time: 2 minutes One year ago I’ve written about the VMware exams and related products version but in the past months something has changes in VMware exams and the described criteria is not (completely) valid. Some month ago VMware has release a new VCP5-DCV exam based on vSphere 5.5 and I’ve (later) associated this with the new recertification policy for VCP.

Can simple change some rules and equilibrium in the EUC world? There are of course several new features, but I think that it’s mostly and evolution than a revolution. The main core architecture remain […]

Reading Time: 6 minutes The Italian VCAP and VCDX Bootcamps have finished and I can confirm (another time) how they can really valuable. During the past VMworld EU, I’ve attend at the VCDX Bootcamp, and this time was the opportunity to attend also at the VCAP Bootcamp (but first to all the opportunity to bring them in Italy). Those bootcamps are a great opportunity to increase you skills, knowledge but also your confidence with VMware high level certification programs. But also a special opportunity to know other people involved in VCAP or VCDX preparation or people that have already […]

Reading Time: 2 minutes Although the official confirmation has not yet arrived via email (same behaviour of last year or two years ago), it seems that (also) this year I was confirmed as a vExpert. The list has published on the VMTN blog site: vExpert 2014 Announcement.
