Attempting the VCDX - documention questions

Jump to solution

Can you just use the SET stuff as a guideline then change where needed like we would give to a customer? Curious about this and don't really want to screw it up, it's kind of a big deal :smileysilly:

thanks everyone!

You can use your existing SET documentation as the foundation, but in almost every case you would need to add to that to meet the criteria in the VCDX Design Defense Blueprint.

My advice:

Pay particular attention to section to section 2.1 of the VCDX5-DCV Design Defense Blueprint.

The goal of the application is to represent your skills as a VMware Solution Architect to a group of your peers who do not know you or your work. If you can convince them that you understood the customer's needs, considered how those needs could be best served by the tools at your disposal, and designed a solution that met those needs - you will be successful. How you arrived at your design, what influenced your decisions, and how you managed the risks inherent in your decisions are extremely important.

Also extremely important is how well you prepared your customer to deploy the solution you designed. Implementation documentation is time-consuming and often jobbed out to specialists. However, it is a skill you must demonstrate mastery of if you are to become VCDX.

Thank you for the advice, I still want to just make sure it's okay for me to use the SET partner stuff that I gave to the customer so that I do not have change all my documentation around, but I would hate to apply then have it tossed out based on that,

 

Thanks for clarifying this matter,
