About the exam
The VMware Certified Advanced Professional – Desktop Design (VCAP-DTD) certification shows that you have continued to enhance your desktop virtualization skills, and validates your ability to design, plan, and optimize VMware View solutions. It shows that you have a strong understanding of VMware View core components and their relation to the data center, as well as View design methodologies and principles.
Achieving a VCAP-DTD certification validates your ability to:
- Determine technical requirements for a VMware View-based design
- Create VMware View-based desktop and desktop pool designs that meet requirements
- Define the VMware vSphere-based infrastructure requirements for a View Design
Before you can achieve this certification you must first be certified in either VCP5-DT or VCP5-DCV.
