already passed vcp510-dv.. so now i need to knock out IaaS to be cloud certified..
DV wasnt bad because i have years of experience with esxi/vcenter... took install/configure course... and read bill ferguson's book..
my problem with IaaS is that I have no experience at all with director.. and no access to it..
I guess I can set it up in a lab environment using my free workstation license
and can take advantage of the vmware online HOL..
we're a premier partner.. so i have access to some of the basic training.. knocked out vsp-cloud and vtsp-cloud, just for the heck of it.. but then tried a mock exam for IaaS and failed miserably..
Ive been approved to go to global knowledge's director install, configure, manage course... but want to find a good book to read in the meantime..
Ive looked around and havent seen many options for director reading material that may help prep for the exam..
anyone have recommendations?
Note that (at the time of this writing) IaaS covers vCloud Director 1.5 while the VCP-Cloud exam is on 5.1.
VMware Learning has free videos on vCD, You can also look at some of the white papers
Your VMware Private Cloud: Evaluate and Architect Your Virtual Private Cloud
You might look at VCAP-CIA resources also as it is the hands-on (and advanced) version of VCP-Cloud. Note that VCAP-CIA covers 5.1
I've not seen many, but here's one I found through Google:
