VCP5-IaaS

I’m reading up for the VCP5-IaaS exam witch I hopefully should pass at VMWorld 2012 in Barcelona 🙂 Update: I passed the VCP5-IaaS or VCP-cloud as is call, I have done a small post on my Exam experiences I will try to post all the resources I can find in my research. Here are some great blogs on how to build you’re own vCloud homelab witch is a must for all who is taking the VCP5-IaaS Exam. There are no class requirement for the VCP5-IaaS but you have to be a VMware Certified Professional on vSphere 5 and then pass the VCP5-IaaS exam. There is a course from VMware on deploy and manage vCloud Director but it is not required.
