Virtualization technology has evolved into a juggernaut in the datacenter space. If you haven’t heard of VMware or had hands on experience with it, it is likely you have been living under a rock and/or have not worked in the IT field in any capacity. It is hard to work in the datacenter space and not come in contact with VMware at some point. There are other virtualization technologies such as Microsoft’s Hyper-V and RedHat’s hypervisor, but VMware is positioned as the leader and innovator in the space.
Within the last 5 years or so, VMware has greatly expanded their certification roadmap and offerings. What started out as simply the VMware Certified Professional (VCP) has expanded into many different VCP tracks such as the Datacenter Virtualization (DCV) track, Network Virtualization (NV) track, Desktop and Mobility (DTM) track as well as the Cloud Management and Automation (CMA) track. There are also advanced certification offerings such as the VMware Certified Advanced Professional (VCAP) and the VMware Certified Design Expert (VCDX), which require much more hands on experience.
