My ramblings about all things technical

VCAP-CID Objectives

Due to an imminent customer engagement I am due to be working on I have been refining my vCloud skills and dusty away the cobwebs. One of these tasks was to book the VCP5-IaaS and sit it so that it forced me to learn the basics again and be sure i had a solid base knowledge with no gaps. My experience of the exam and the resources I used for it are mention in my VCP5-IaaS Exam Experience blog posting. I have now been using the VCAP-CID blueprint as a structure for perfecting my vCloud design skills and so I thought I would slowly post up each objective for my own benefit but also hopefully help other people looking to take the VCAP-CID. The postings will go out in individual blog postings and I will link to them on this page. I will also be going through all the resources mentioned on my VCAP-CIA and CID page before the exam.  If anyone thinks I’ve missed something please do tell me as I’m only human and this is aimed to benefit everyone.
