VCDX-Cloud, Double-X002

The past year i have delivered quite a few VMware vCloud projects and mainly focusing on the design part. In Q1 2013 i was tasked with a vCloud project where i had the chance to both create the design and perform the implementation. I thought these conditions were a good foundation for the VMware Certified Design Expert – Cloud (VCDX-Cloud) certification so by the end of Q2 i decided to give it a try. I spend quite a lot of time this summer to put together the VCDX-Cloud application and the 16:th of August i sent it to VMware for review.

Today, 2013-09-26, i received an email from Mark Brunstad, who is the VCDX Program Manager, with the review result and i passed it:)


This means I’m the second person worldwide with both the VCDX certifications, VCDX5-DCV and VCDX-Cloud and this makes me really proud.
From now on i can title myself as a Double-X person meaning you might see the signature Double-X002 somewhere in the future:)

For those of you who know me or have read my blog know i achieved the VMware Certified Design Expert (VCDX) certification, now called VCDX5-DCV back in 2010. At that point in time there was only one path available for the VCDX certification.
Today there are two paths within the VCDX certification track:

  • VCDX5-DCV (which covers the datacenter virtualization)
  • VCDX-Cloud (which covers the Cloud virtualization)

For more information about the different VCDX paths, visit the VMware web site. Read about the VCDX-Cloud certification here and VCDX5-DCV certification here. When holding a VCDX certification while applying for another VCDX certification you do not need to defend the application. Read more about the defense process on my VCDX page located here.

After receiving the review result a lot of congratulations starts coming in via twitter, started by Mark Brunstad, and also via email.
I would like to thank you all for the congratulations and also send a special thank you to my family that always supports me in my work, without you this wouldn’t have been possible.
