Is it an official training session from VMware?

  • No, we are not an authorized training partner for VMware and we are conducting our own track of courses on virtualization and storage technologies

So can I be a VCP after I done this training package from Vinsys?

  • For any IT infra organization, your skills in the product is the major concern than the certifications you possess. In tune with this philosophy, all the IT organizations like Microsoft, Cisco and the like will permit you to appear for their international certifications without attending their official training.
  • But VMware holds a different policy regarding their certification process for VCP. Even if you can appear for the VCP exam through Pearson VUE and pass the exam, your e-certificate will not be generated until you appear for a mandatory Install, Configure, Manage boot camp.

So what is the significance of training offered by Vinsys?

  • First of all, the ICM camp offered by VMware is just a mandatory certification prerequisite for the VCP exam. The topics covered on the ICM is not sufficient even for your VCP examination. The camp does not even cover the installation of the ESXi host on the beginning and all the industry relevant topics like distributed switch , Host profile ,vCenter -ODBC connectivity , Backup solutions ,upgradation from previous 4.x generation products, Physical to virtual conversion are not part of the ICM.
  • The storage management is one of the critical part of the software defined datacenter and the ICM covers only some basic slides of the storage part and no practical hands on is imparted on storage management . in short, Official training will suit you if you are already aware about the data center and storage management and networking and already implemented a VMware infrastructure in your environment and just want to get your class ID for the e-certificate of VCP.Our training session is focused on an individual already comfortable with Microsoft and Cisco networks and who wish to get an in depth hands on session in virtualization and storage technologies.

The VMware NSX Training course is a great source for end to end connectivity for your apps and data. VMware boot camp taught me to run apps unified and seamlessly and thus prevent threats. The VMware certification helped me reduce scope of compliance by isolating the systems that store, process, or transmit sensitive data


Mr. Kiran Raghavan

Senior Business Analyst

The online Vmware NSX Training Program taught me how to reduce the scope of compliance by isolating the systems that store, process, or transmit sensitive data. I have now got my efficiency improved by applying all the practices taught by Vinsys.
