Tomorrow I will be attending the VMware Certified Design Expert Workshop in de Bilt near Utrecht. This workshop will be organized by Martijn Baecke from VMware Netherlands. The VCDX certification is the “top notch” certification in the virtualization industry, there are only around 190 VCDX certified people in the world. In this session I hope to hear what it takes to become part of this elite group.

The VCDX certification is achieved through a design defense process, where all candidates must submit and successfully defend a production-ready VMware Solution before a panel of veteran VCDX holders. This process ensures that those who achieve VCDX status are very well screened by peers in the industry and ready to join this elite group.

Since last year there are four types of VCDX certifications, in the beginning there was only VCDX Data Center Virtualization. Since last year VMware has added Cloud Management and Automation, Desktop and Mobility and Network Virtualization.
