Passed my VCP410

on Saturday, 12 December 2009. Posted in VMware

A little bit late to mention but friday the 4e of december I did the VCP410 exam. I passed with 375/500, But that was good enough for me. I had a Storage migration the evening before  and crawled under the sheets about 1:30 AM. At 7:00 AM I woke up to take the exam at 9:00 AM.

In the past year and half, I've been working intensively with redesigning Backup and Recovery, moving inactive data to another Tier layers,  implementing Archiving, Introduce new NAS Storage and now upgrade our SAN with two new Clariion systems. In the meantime I did three Storage Courses to. Heavy? Yes! So believe me, I can therefore say that it was an eventful year.

But it has paid off! So who's complaining.

I think 3 weeks of prep is insufficient if you not have the experience regarding VMware. And working with the product for some months sure helps a lot. For me this trick was successfull. The exam has 85 questions and you get 90 minutes to complete the exam. The passing score is 300 out of 500. There are a lot of questions about 'choose three' or 'choose two'. Personally I had difficulty with questions related to the distributed switch. Networking is not my thing, it's  also new to VMware, and let me just have the bad luck that there were many questions about this topic.

I'm also prepering myself for the expert training regarding the EMC Architecture and Design course which will be given in the USA next year in 2010. In februari I will follow up my EMC CLARiiON CX4 course and Certification. Although I have much experience regarding the CLARiiON , I also want to certify myself. The next step regarding VMware is the “VMware Certified Design Expert (VCDX)” certification. The VCDX is only for VI3 on the moment. I will wait till the VCDX has vSphere support.

Anyway, I passed, so now I can call myself  VCP3 and VCP4.
