    VMware recently announced that there will be a new VCP 5 exam, this one being aimed more at Cloud than internal infrastructure.
    Called the VCP 5-IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) the exam is based around vSphere 5 and VCD 1.5.

    That means there will be 3 different VCP 5 exams to book up so please be careful when booking up exams in the future.

    VCP 5
    VCP 5-DT
    VCP 5-IaaS

    More information can be found over on the VMware Education Blog

    When I pass the VCP 5 exam, I'd be interested in the VCP 5-IaaS...

    Everything is going cloud so I think it's good that VMware have this. I'd be happy with just a VCP5 for now. Would either of you two consider going for the VMware Certified Advanced Professional? I would be more tempted to go for this then the VCDX but I'm not even a VCP5 yet!

    I see the VCAP Datacenter Design exam is out for 5 now

    You have to have both VCAP's before going for the VCDX anyway.

    I would love to go for the VCAP but I do need some more hands on with the products first.

    Like Simon, I'd also like to go for VCAP... but I need at least another year of experience before starting to look at it. For now I'd be happy with VCP5... but definitely going to do the VCAP down the road, just a matter of time.

    VCAP looks like the way forward. One of my mates finds out if he's got a purely VMware role any day now the lucky guy. I hope he gets it, then I'll have someone to vouch for me in the future ha ha

    Scott I check your Blog all the time mate you rock, its official, I got the memo ha ha

    Cheers Prof..... I really want it! No but don't you guys find, I like anything Microsoft, a bit of Citrix, but nothing in my career interests me more than practically anything VMware. I especially love learning more Linux commands and fixes for ESX ..... :oops:

    Thanks for the update Simon.

    I really would like to get my VCP 5 knocked out, then I was interested in the VCAP-DCD5, however work are going to start a big push on View soon, so I it will more likely be VCP5-DT I think.

    At least someone from CF needs to do it and blog about the experience, any volunteers?

    Actually View is where I want to be more than Cloud.
