VMware announces Global Education Services and New Certification tracks!

New to the education offerings are Live Online and Flex Online courses, available for the “VMware Infrastructure 3: Install and Configure” course, one of three courses that serve as a requirement to become a VMware Certified Professional. In the increasingly costly travel climate, Live Online and Flex Online provides students with a variety of options to help them decide how, when and where to attend their courses.*

“Authorized VMware training is the fastest growing part of our portfolio and we're seeing huge demand from our customers for all the courses we offer. Virtualization is having a massive impact on the IT market, so being able to offer Authorized Training and Certification is hugely important for us,” said Leigh Lovering, director, QA-IQ, a leading UK VATC. “We expect the number of students we train in 2008 to be over a 500% increase on 2007, and the first six months is already showing that we are well on the way to achieving that target.”

For those looking to further their skills around VMware Infrastructure, two certifications are available: VMware Certified Professional (VCP) and the new VMware Certified Design Expert (VCDX). The VMware Certified Professional is designed for partners, end-users, resellers, and consultants looking to demonstrate their expertise in virtual infrastructure and increase their potential for career advancement. The VMware Certified Design Expert (VCDX) is an advanced certification for architects and consultants who are responsible for planning and designing VMware enterprise deployments.

“Global interest in VMware certification has exceeded even our most ambitious estimates,” said Randy Trask, vice president of market development at testing services company Pearson VUE. “Among all IT certification programs, no one is growing more quickly than VMware.” Overall, more than 25,000 IT professionals hold one or more VCP certifications and over 18,000 VCPs to date have received the VMware Infrastructure 3 certification.

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them.
