Reading Time: 2 minutes See on: http://communities.vmware.com/thread/323082 As most people reading this know, VMware recently announced its vSphere 5 product release.  Although certifications based on vSphere 4 retain their value, we must march onwards; for instance, VCP5 has already been announced.  To this end, today there is the announce of the final opportunity to attempt the VCDX certification based on vSphere 4 designs (this would mean that the VCDX5 certification could be near the corner? maybe in middle 2012?). The city will be Frankfurt, Germany, and the dates will be February 6-10, 2012.  Applications for this session will open on November 14, […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes Objective 1.2 – Install and Configure VMware ESXi See also this similar post: Objective 1.2 – Install and Configure VMware ESXi and Objective 1.2 – Install and Configure VMware ESXi. Perform an interactive installation of ESXi (similar as vSphere 4.x) Interactive installation is quite simple and similar to a generic ESXi 4.x. Seems strange but there is no mention on scripted installation (introduced first time, for ESXi, in version 4.1) in the blueprint, but IMHO you must know them, at least how you can boot from (you can PXE boot the ESXi installer or boot […]

Reading Time: 1 minute Some hours ago I have received an e-mail from VMware Technical Certification Team to add the VCP4-DT certification in my official transcript. The VMware education transcripts will now include your VMware technical certifications. Your online transcripts will reflect your VMware Certified Professional 4 – Desktop status as soon as you: –  Confirm your shipping address –  Consent to transcript release –  Accept the VMware Certification Agreement After complete the task, I notice that my ID is #20… Really curios, because I’ve not take the exam during the beta period (due to no available date in […]

Reading Time: 1 minute With this first post, I will start a collection of link and notes about the VCP5 exam prep. I will use the official blueprint (the actual version is 1.2, and is still related to the beta exam, but probably it will remain the same). Let’s start from the part that is not included in the blueprint (something is in objective 1.5): the VMware products and solutions overview and some concepts about cloud computing. Section 0 – VMware Vision (not included in the blueprint, but required) Objective 0.1 – VMware Products VMware vSphere VMware View VMware vCloud Director VMware SRM […]

Reading Time: 1 minute A new blog about virtualization has been started… For more info see also the why page.

Reading Time: 1 minute Official news are still missing,  but something is moving for the new exam VCAP5-DCA. There are works in progress for the blueprint (whit also the feedback from a restricted survery that will close on Jul, 26). Seems confirmed that the exam will be 100% lab based. So could be possible that VCAP5-DCA certification will be announce during the VMworld USA at the end of august. Maybe in the same period will start the beta? What I quite sure is that the beta cannot run before… most VUE testing centers are closed in August.

Reading Time: 5 minutes After two year I’m again on the VCP beta exam… (on July, 14 2009 I’ve take the VCP4 beta exam, that was the first beta exam from VMware). The story is available on: http://communities.vmware.com/people/AndreTheGiant/blog/2011/07/21/my-vmware-vcp5-beta-exam-experience The beta exam As written in the official blueprint (v1.2) the beta exam (code VCP511) consist of 180 questions (with a short pre-exam survey of 8 questions). Beta exam period will finish on July, 24 (I never though that some VUE testing center were open also on other day than Mon-Fri) and can be schedules in any VUE center (depending on […]

Reading Time: 1 minute After  the launch of vSphere 5 on July 12th, also the new VCP5 has been launched! The VMware Certification portal has already been updated with the VCP5 exam blueprint and even a VCP5 mock exam, and there is a substantial amount of information about the training requirements on the VCP5 homepage. The final exam will be available to take after August 29th 2011, but there was also be the usual beta period until Jul 24.

Reading Time: 3 minutes What is vExpert? From the vExpert Landing Page: The VMware vExpert Award is given to individuals who have significantly contributed to the community of VMware users over the past year. vExperts are book authors, bloggers, VMUG leaders, tool builders, and other IT professionals who share their knowledge and passion with others. These vExperts have gone above and beyond their day jobs to share their technical expertise and communicate the value of VMware and virtualization to their colleagues and community. You can notice that it isn’t a new type of certitication but a award (quite similar […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes The story is also available on: http://communities.vmware.com/people/AndreTheGiant/blog/2011/06/07/my-thoughts-on-vcp-dt-certification About VCP-DT The VMware Certified Professional 4 – Desktop Certification is the second step of the Desktop Technologies Certifications paths. To become a VCP4-DT: http://mylearn.vmware.com/mgrReg/plan.cfm?plan=21427&ui=www_cert. Basically the two requirements are: VCP4 and VCA4-DT certifications… no course is mandatory, but some courses are recommended. Sound strange, but I’ve not found the offical price of this exam. In the web site there is only this sentece “Register for the VCP4-DT exam before September 1, 2011 and take advantage of the $50 discount”. So I have to assume that the price that […]
