According to Microsoft, Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award is given to “exceptional, independent community leaders who share their passion, technical expertise, and real-world knowledge of Microsoft products with others”.

The awarded are people who “actively share their … technical expertise with the different technology communities related directly or indirectly to Microsoft”. An MVP is awarded for contributions over the previous year.

Is more than an award (or accreditation) instead of certification and is quite similar (in the concept) like other “community” award, like the VMware vExpert.


This 1st July I’ve was reconfirmed by the MVP team with the notification that I’m again a MVP on Microsoft Hyper-V technology also for the year 2015.

It was a surprise one year ago (when I gain for the first time the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award), but was a big surprise also this year, because I’ve not done so much (considering that the main product will be released in 2016).

So, thanks very much for this recognition and I hope to do my best to deserve it also this year.
