New "DESIGN EXPERT" VMware Certification:

Just read this over at Sound interesting for those invested in a virtualization career like myself.

On his personal blog Duncan Epping just published an interesting news about a new upcoming certification from VMware: the VMware Certified Design Exper (VCDE).

A new advanced certification for design architects of enterprise deployments, VMware Certified Design Expert (VCDE), will be in beta toward the end of November. The VCDE measures the consultants ability to design, implement, document and test a VMware Infrastructure data center for the enterprise. Requirements for the VMware Certified Design Expert include:

  • VMware Certified Professional (VCP) on VMware Infrastructure 3
  • Pass a VMware Infrastructure 3 Enterprise level exam and a VMware Infrastructure 3 design exam
  • Submit, present and defend a successful virtual infrastructure design plan

Glad to learn VMware is doing this; it has been long overdue for them to offer a solid path for certifications above the "ground level" they have been providing.
This is indeed great news!

I would agree with that too. I'm actually shocked they are not requiring updated certifications on the new ESX 3.5 and VI 3 with all the changes.
