The Next First: Avi Certification
There have been many important “firsts” for Avi. The first packet to be successfully load balanced. The first customer evaluation. The first production workloads. And now we are excited to be unleashing another first – The NSX Advanced Load Balancer (Avi) Badge for Operators.
Over the last two years as a VMware-owned product, Avi, also known as the NSX Advanced Load Balancer, has welcomed more than 10,000 engineers to free technical training. The level of interest from customers and prospects has been incredible. And along with that, we now have 10,000 engineers asking where the certification is to validate their efforts, bolster their resumes, and further their careers.
Available immediately, we are pleased to announce the NSX Advanced Load Balancer Operator badge. A standalone test validates the technical knowledge of administrators in the operations of the Avi load balancer. The test is available online via Pearson VUE, similar to other VMware badges and certifications.
This test is no walk in the park. It requires hands-on experience using Avi in real-world scenarios and knowledge gained from available Avi training and classes. At a minimum, candidates should have at least 3 months of hands-on experience with Avi. We also recommend having experience using similar products. Ideal candidates have a cursory understanding of the diverse types of clouds. And we find that successful candidates likely hold additional industry-recognized IT certifications or accreditations. In addition, candidates should be knowledgeable in the topics listed below.
- Architecture and Technologies
- VMware Products and Solutions
- Planning and Designing
- Installing, Configuring, and Setup
- Performance-tuning, Optimization, Upgrades
- Troubleshooting and Repairing
- Administrative and Operational Tasks
