What is the difference between VCP - Cloud and VCP - IaaS?

I was preparing myselft to take the VCPVCD 510 exam in order to acomplish my VCP5 - IaaS certification, buy yesterday VMware releases a new Certification (VCP - Cloud).

Looking at the VMware page there seems not to be difference between each other.

VCP - Cloud

VCP - IaaS

Thanks.

Checking this

It seems currently we have single exam for VCP-Iaas and VCP-Cloud!

So, if I pass VCP-Iaas exam, would I hold two titles i.e VCP-Iaas and VCP-Cloud ?

The Certification Roadmap shows both under same category

Exactly and what if I've already have the VCP - IaaS? Do I automatically have the VCP - Cloud?

Hello all,

The VCP5-IaaS Certification takes existing VCP5 certificate holders, who have already demonstrated mastery of vSphere, and tests for mastery for vCloud administration, including vCD, vShield and Chargeback.

The newly announced VCP-Cloud Certification would allow a candidate who holds no existing certification to obtain the VCP-Cloud by demonstrating mastery of vSphere, vCD, vShield and Chargeback.

The VCP-Cloud Certification is in development at this time, so I cannot answer specifics just yet regarding how the exam will be delivered or the exact content for the exam.  We will provide more information as we get closer to releasing the certification.

Thanks!
