Desktop and Server Virtualization


For system engineers who need to increase their value to employers and stay current with advances in virtualization knowledge and skills, the VMWare VCP-DCV certification program provides the education and training required for installing, monitoring, and troubleshooting server infrastructure products designed by the industry leader in server virtualization.

The VCP-DCV certification validates the ability to install, configure, deploy , scale and manage VMWare VSphere environments. VCP certified professionals have the knowledge and skills to install , configure and manage a VSphere environment. VCP training covers (but is not limited to) the use of these topics: Vcenter management , ESX Configuration , Security , Patch Management , Storage Management , Network Virtualization , Fault Tolerance . Migration . The VCP-6 exam is the composite exam associated with the VCP-DCV . This exam tests a candidate's knowledge and skills required to install, deploy, and manage a VMWare Vsphere environment. The topics include all the areas covered under the VCP-6 exam.
