      The VMware Certification team is pleased to announce the Revised VMware Certified Design Expert (VCDX) Defense schedule for 2013. Registration for all VCDX Defenses listed here are open in myLearn.

       

      Candidates at all 2013 VCDX Defenses will be offered the opportunity to submit and defend vSphere4 and vSphere5-based designs in pursuit of the VCDX4-DCV credential. Candidates may also choose to submit and defend vSphere5-based designs in pursuit of the VCDX5-DCV credential. Support for the VCDX4-DCV credential will continue until the prerequisite certifications are retired.

       

       

       

      Beginning with the VMworld San Francisco VCDX Design Defense, candidates will also be offered the opportunity to submit and defend vSphere5-based designs in pursuit of VCDX-Cloud. Details on this newly-released certification can be found here:
