Hi all, VMware has released the newest version of their virtualization product. There are some shiny new features in this release that I will be discussing in the future but for now let’s discuss their new certification track. Version 5 of the VCP certification experience with VMware is a bit different this time (well really every time with VMware). You have until February 29th, 2012 to study for and pass the VCP 5 exam. If you don’t make that deadline you have to take a refresher class.
The VCP 5 exam has no study materials that I can find on the Internet. Their suggested method of study is “Gain hands-on experience with VMware vSphere 5”. That might work for some but for those that need a book to condense their docs into an easy to read and use manual for the exam there is a 2 day class titled “VMware vSphere: What’s New V5”. And thankfully it is available online this time around!
VMware VCP 4 to 5 conversion track can be found here. Have a look.
Until next time,
