          Hi Serya, welcome to the forums.

           

          Being a VCP, recognition of a certain standard and knowledge of VMware Virtualisation, access to the VCP site, a VMware Workstation license, the ability to continue qualifications through to design expert. It also looks good on a CV if you are going for a virtualisation job.

           

          Hope this helps,

              I just add that it could also useful for the company where you work.

              To reach the status of VMware Enterprise Partner at least 2 VCPs are required (there are also other requirements, but are more simple to reach).

                besides bragging rights and the ability to qualify a question about virtualization with a dignified answer.. nothing.

                 

                Will it get you more money?  Probably not.  Will it get you more respect, doubtful.

                 

                It's just pride, you accomplished something, you learned VM Ware.. except NOW more people will EXPECT you to have better answers, so VCP is one thing, KNOWING your stuff is another.

                 

                Walk the walk.. don't just talk.
