VMware VCA-DCV exam.

Share this link

Yesterday in my quest for certifications I passed the VMware VCA-DCV exam.
Although KVM and RHEV are good tools getting every day more recognition, VMware is still synonym of virtualization in a lot of companies.

The VCA-DCV exam (VMware Certified Associate in DataCenter Virtualization/VCAD510) is a new first level VMware certification. It’s not required to follow any special training before the exam as most of the VMware certifications ask for.

If you are interested in this exam that costs around $100 (without voucher), create a VMware account, search for certification in the VMware website (I know it’s not easy!) and just before registering for the exam at the bottom of the VCA-DCV page, select the “VMware Data Center Virtualization Fundamentals” free training session (you can also get it here and select the content/story.swf file in your browser). It’s a 2.5 hour session talking about all the products around VMware vSphere.

The exam lasts 75 minutes for 50 questions. The pass mark is 300 out of 500.
If you follow the free training session and correctly understand the various product features & concepts (vSphere, vCenter, VSA, replication, HA, FT, vMotion, DRS, etc), questions are relatively easy even for somebody without VMware real experience.
