VCAP6-DTM Design Exam Now Available


Last month I announced the availability of the first three VMware Certified Advanced Professional 6 (VCAP6) certifications. Today I get to announce a fourth one:

VMware Certified Advanced Professional 6 – Desktop and Mobility Design (VCAP6-DTM Design)

You can now schedule the exam for any date after August 22, 2016 at participating PearsonVue testing centers. This exam will also be offered for 50% off at the onsite Certification Exam Center at VMworld 2016 (US and Europe).

We are currently working through the beta exam rescore process now, and expect to have test scores out by the beginning of September.

Embrace Your Inner Architect with Our New Design & Deploy Courses

buildingYou may be familiar with the VMware courses focused on giving you the skills needed to make the most of VMware products and technology, including Install, Configure, Manage, Optimize & Scale, and Troubleshooting.

Design & Deploy courses take your training and skills to a whole new level. These courses emphasize architecture, design, and deployment. We created them to help our customers and partners take greater control of their environments by providing a deeper dive into infrastructure, design principles, and deployment best practices.

Design decision making is at the heart of these courses. What are the critical factors you need to consider when creating a design that meets your organization’s evolving needs in terms of scalability, reliability, and performance? For example, how do you design for the most efficient use of storage and network resources? How do you plan for rapid growth or utilization spikes?

Early design decisions can have a dramatic impact on overall infrastructure effectiveness, so learning best practices is vital to your success.

Special Sauce: Direct Interactions with Your Industry Peers

Design & Deploy courses are instructor-led in a classroom setting, with a significant portion of time spent working in small groups. These lab exercises focus on how to best meet the needs of very specific infrastructure objectives.

You’ll gain invaluable design insights through deep discussions with fellow students. These interactive sessions enable teams to create and evaluate designs based on real world challenges. Working with other IT leaders gives you a better understanding of the challenges facing other organizations (which are often similar to yours) and imparts a broader knowledge of design considerations.

Your Design & Deploy Options

We currently have four Design & Deploy class offerings, each of which also helps prepare students for our VMware Certified Implementation Expert (VCIX) certification exams. (Note: If you see “Fast Track” in the class title, that means the course covers a higher amount of content and therefore is scheduled for ten-hour, rather than eight-hour, days.)

Are you ready to extend your expertise into system design? Have a look at our Design & Deploy courses:


New vSphere V6 and Horizon V6 Courses

Last month we released several new courses on vSphere V6 and Horizon V6. Make sure you know when the latest courses are released by signing up for email alerts.

vSphere: Optimize and Scale [V6]

This course teaches experienced vSphere users advanced skills for configuring and maintaining a highly available and scalable virtual infrastructure. Through a mix of lecture and hands-on labs, you will configure and optimize the vSphere features that build a foundation for a truly scalable infrastructure and discuss when and where these features have the greatest effect. Anyone who is ready to take their understanding of vSphere to a deeper level and learn how to use advanced features and controls will greatly benefit from this course.

Lab Connect also available to enhance your learning experience.

vSphere: Troubleshooting Workshop [V6]

This hands-on training workshop gives you the advanced knowledge, skills, and abilities to achieve troubleshoot a vSphere 6 environment. This workshop increases your skill and competence in using the command-line interface, vSphere Web Client, vRealize Log lnsight, and other tools to analyze and solve problems.

vSphere: Skills for Operators [V6]

This two-day technical course combines lecture and hands-on labs to give operators and administrators who create and manage virtual machines the skills required to be effective and successful.

Horizon: Design and Deploy [V6]

This course presents a methodology for designing and deploying a VMware Horizon solution, including best practices and recommendations for the type of information you must gather and analyze to make sound design decisions for the client systems, the desktop options, the vSphere infrastructure, and the Horizon components. During class, you will apply your new knowledge by working with other participants to design and deploy a Horizon solution for a real-world project.

Two New Design Courses + VMware NSX V6.2 Training

New Training CoursesThree highly anticipated training courses were released last month:

VMware vSphere: Design and Deploy Fast Track [V6] – This extended-hours training course equips you with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to design and deploy a VMware vSphere® 6.0 virtual infrastructure. You will work with peers to hone your skills with a proven approach to designing and deploying a virtualization solution that is available, scalable, manageable, and secure. This course discusses the benefits and risks of available design alternatives and provides information to support making sound design decisions.

VMware NSX: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.2] – This comprehensive, fast-paced training course focuses on installing, configuring, and managing VMware NSX™. This course covers VMware NSX as a part of the software-defined data center (SDDC) platform, features of VMware NSX, and functionality operating at Layer 2 through Layer 7 of the OSI model. Lecture and hands-on lab activities support your understanding of VMware NSX features, functionality, and on-going management.

VMware Cloud Automation: Design and Deploy Fast Track [V6.0] – This training course focuses on designing and deploying an enterprise cloud by using a distributed architecture deployment of VMware vRealize™ Automation. The lecture and labs concentrate on designing an enterprise cloud architecture and the effective implementation of a vRealize Automation distributed deployment according to VMware recommended best practices.
