Six months ago I wrote a post on some possible replacement for PernixData FVP because in August 2016 Nutanix acquire PernixData without give a clear message of the future of this product. Since acquisition, they’ve continued to maintain support for the “legacy” Architect and FVP products, as also they leave the possibility to extend the products base, leaving the acquisition of new licenses, but only to existing customents.

How many VCP or VCAP people there are in the world and how many for each country? This is a not simple question, because of the lack of an official list of names. The only list that is keep updated is the VCDX directory, but you will not found something similar for other VMware’s certifications.

At the beginning of VCAP exams, there was a unique serial ID, so was easy guess those number for VCAP (and potentially also for VCP, because there was also a unique sequential ID for all VCPs).
