Passing the VMware Cloud on AWS Software Defined Data Center 2019 exam

4th January 2019 AWS VMwonAWS 0

I’m a huge fan of VMware’s coupling with Amazon, and so with a number of my customers moving workloads to VMware Cloud on AWS, I have today passed the VMware Cloud on AWS Software Defined Data Center 2019 exam, which is a 45 minute online exam with 30 questions.

This is a new badge from VMware that will test you on all aspects of the SDDC offering, its management and its connections to your on-premise Data Center.  You can sit the exam from home by registering with Pearson VUE here:https://www.vmware.com/education-services/certification/vmware-cloud-on-aws-management-exam-2019.html

There are no course requirements for this exam, but unless you’ve worked with VMConAWS, you may find this exam quite difficult.  Those with VMware and specifically VMware Cloud Foundation skills (eg the whole SDDC stack of vSAN, vSphere and NSX) will fare well.

Here is what I did to pass:

You don’t have to be an existing VCP to pass this exam and in terms of difficulty, its definitely easier than a VCP, but as there isn’t a lot of material about, and there are a few nuances to what is effectively VMware Cloud Foundation in AWS, it’s not as easy as it sounds.  Lastly I gave a short talk on it at my local VMUG last year, so put yourself under pressure, volunteer to present on the subject and you’ll definitely be motivated to learn as much as you can!

Good luck, let me know how you get on!
