From the editors virtual desk

Hi everyone, it really is starting to feel like the countdown to the end of the years festivities has begun. With all of the holidays coming up there is no end to the sales and other promotions going on it seems.

 

From a VMware perspective we are nearing the end of our Roadshows in many of the regions, with VMworld Europe and US completed as well as vForum in Sydney and other parts of Australia. These are amazing events that draw such a broad audience all interested in different aspects of what VMware has to offer.

 

Have a fantastic week everyone, if you are attending any of the final vForum events in your region for the year I wish you a fantastic time and look forward to receiving your feedback from the event.

 

Virtually Yours

      From the editors virtual desk

      Hi everyone, I hope you have had a successful week. I have ben very busy with my customers and some personal learning. Last week I mentioned to you all the VCP 550D exam. I wanted to provide more information on this exam and the VCP 5 for those that are thinking of doing it.

       

      General Information on the VCP 5 can be found here: http://tinyurl.com/vcp5dvc

       

      There are 4 Paths as follows:

      Path 1: Just starting with Data Center Technologies.
      Path 2: If you have any valid VCP certification.
      Path 3: you have completed a course that qualified for VCP4-DCV certification, but did not pass the VCP4-DCV exam.
      Path 4: If you are a current VCP5-DCV who took exam VCP510 and now needs to recertify.

      As you can see there are multiple ways to certify with VMware and it is important of you to check which one is appropriate for you. And as soon as you have certified you can start looking at one of the advanced certifications such as the VCP-DCA or VCP-DCD.

       

      I will try and provide more information on those exams in the coming weeks but please feel free to contact me with any questions.

       

      vForum Sydney has also just finished last week and the feedback from this event has been fantastic. It is the first one I have missed in 6 years and an event that I am very fond of, congratulations to everyone again on such an awesome event.

       

      Have a fantastic week everyone, and I wish my fellow colleagues and customers in Brisbane a great G20 which is happening this week.

      From the editors virtual desk

      Hi everyone, today marks the end of daylight savings in San Francisco and with that I suppose the days will start to get shorter. I really enjoy the later evenings, when I lived in Brisbane we did not have daylight saving and I always thought that we were missing out, and I feel as if I was correct. I still have many readers in Brisbane so if you are reading this maybe it’s time to petition for daylight savings like other states.

       

      I have been pretty focused this week on vSphere 5.5 and SRM 5.5 specifically around the upgrade process for customers looking to do a fresh new install and move to the vCenter Server Appliance. This creates a bit of a challenge for the upgrade as there are a number of items that you do not get with this appliance, such as Linked Mode and also you are fairly restricted on database choices unless you can use the inbuilt database.

       

      That being said I truly believe this is a very worthwhile process and the ability for a clean and fresh start and the removal of some additional complexity by using the appliance is definitely a route worth investigating.

       

      Are you in need of VMware recertification. Well if you are then November is the last month where the VCP5-DCV Delta  Recertification exam will be available. This is the easiest way to rectify and the cheapest. I suggest you check it out and see if you qualify and get going on this before it is too late and you are required to do the entire certification exam again (this one is online). More info can be found here:http://tinyurl.com/vmware550d

       

      Have a fantastic and productive week. And for those of my friends and colleagues who will be in Sydney this week for vForum I wish you the best time ever at the best event in the region by far. I wish I was there (first one I have missed in 6 years)

       

      Send me pics and news from the event guys.

       

      Virtually Yours
