VMware Certified Professional – Cloud

The VMware Certified Professional – Cloud (VCP-Cloud) is a certification that validates one’s ability to install, configure and administer a cloud environment using vCloud Director. This includes the ability to work with vSphere and administer related networking and storage components. Concepts that are covered range from cloud security and multi-tenancy to private, public and hybrid cloud deployments. New IT professionals can get VCP-Cloud certified by attending a qualifying course and passing the exams, while those who are already certified with either the VMware Certified Professional 5 (VCP5-DCV) or VMware Certified Professional 5 – Desktop (VCP5-DT) can opt to take the exams right away.

The impact that the cloud has on enterprise IT today can’t be denied. For all its pervasiveness, however, the cloud is still comparatively new, which makes hiring the correct employees equipped with the pertinent cloud-related skillsets all the more important. The field is constantly changing, too, which makes identifying these abilities an even more challenging one for the harried CIO or IT manager.

To help you on this front, we have identified some of the more notable cloud-related certifications. While they run the gamut from the relatively entry-level to the fairly challenging (and prestigious), they are likely certifications that you should know about as you evaluate your staff’s skillsets and go about hiring.
