I’ve just passed the VCP5 exam today though a bit nervous at the beginning. But once I heard that my colleague who took the same exam earlier than me has passed it, I anticipate that this is not going to be hard as what most people think. Since today is the last day for every VCP holders to take it(else have to go for VCP5 training), the pressure is very high for me but lets forget about the scoring. I have to pass it no matter how although for the first 20 questions really make me feel that I’m not going to pass it. To be honest, it could be easy for me back when I was an engineer or for someone who have done with the implementation in the recent months. But my last implementation for the vSphere 5 was 5-to-6 months ago (beta) while for vSphere 4, I never did it for almost a year and seriously all these contribute to my headache during the exam. There were about 6 questions that I couldn’t figure out what the answers are. Nevertheless, once I get my grip for the rest of the questions and based on my strong basic understanding with vSphere 4 components, finally I’ve passed it with 428/500 passing score.
The gifts have finally been received. Despite free licenses, beta and other opportunities, I admit these are the most priceless and valuable gifts so far that have been given to me by VMware. Therefore, I would like to say “Thanks” to Alex and John for their effort.
Just in case any of you guys looking for vSphere 5 best practices, below are the KBs that could become your starting point when implementing vSphere 5.
One side note is, this is not a comprehensive guide and please look for vSphere documentation instead if you are looking for definitive answer.
Everything seems awkward lately due to global economic hitting some Asian countries inclusive Malaysia. Despite this will make most of the Enterprise customers to distant themselves and cut their billing drastically, this is not the case for some SMBs here though with their limited pocket.
Virtualization in 2012 here emerged and epitomizes everything that a rapid cost reduction solution should be. The futures are there. It is how we grab the opportunity. Intensive approach doesn’t always come with apparent results and greediness sometime will make virtualization is not an option for SMBs. To be honest, simplessity is what SMBs are really looking for and the problem is, we are the one who make it complicated….No comments
