Exploring the VCDX certification

A VCDX certification requires candidates to demonstrate their command of managing, building and designing VMware solutions and systems. VMware offers VCDX certification in four areas: Data Center Virtualization, Cloud Management & Automation, Desktop and Mobility, and Network Virtualization.

Becoming a VCDX is not easy. This top-tier certification exam is comprised of two parts: the submission and the defense. The submission portion of the exam requires a lot of studying. The following defense portion is a challenging 45-minute presentation where the candidate must clarify their conceptual, logical and physical design and problem solve questions in front of a panel of judges. Pawel shares some tips on how to prepare for your VCDX defense.

Why get VMware certified?

Earning a VMware certification can be a long journey sometimes studded with roadblocks, but one that’s well worth the hard work. A whitepaper by the IT Certification Council shows IT certificate holders often see higher salaries, increased self-confidence and career stability compared to their uncertified peers. Some VCDX holders have even be able to trade In their VCDX certification for college credit toward their IT degrees.

When you embark on the VCDX journey, VMware Learning and the VCDX community will be there to cheer you on!
