    VMware Certified Advanced Professional 6 (Desktop and Mobility Deployment) – The industry-recognized VCAP6-DTM Deploy certification validates that you know how to deploy and optimize VMware Horizon 6 (with View) environments. It proves that you have the understanding and abilities necessary to leverage best practices to provide a scalable and reliable Business Mobility platform for your company. Some of the subjects involve: Configuring and managing Horizon View components, configuring cloud pod archituecture, configuring Group Policy settings related to Horizon View, Configuring and optimizing desktop images for Horizon View & Mirage, Configuring and managing App Volumes AppStacks, Configuring desktop pools, Configuring and deploying ThinApp packaged applications, Configuring VMWare Identity Manager, etc.Sebastian’s take on the VCAP6 exam: “In my personal thoughts and opinions VCAP6 exam is way better experience compared to VCAP5, the new exam appears to be just like VMware HOL. The screen is easy, questions are sorted on the right side of the screen, and can be concealed to the side or even restored when necessary. My advise on the questions window: if you choose to make it floating, you must know how to restore it back. I ended up shifting it all around simply because I forget about how to restore it back. The 2 arrows that appeared to be control buttons on the top were created to dock the window to left or right. Fonts can be resized, which i believe was better than scrolling up and down the question. The response speed of the entire interface was faster compared to VCAP5.5, and there wasn’t any lagging period experienced when changing from window to window. One thing to remember: BACKSPACE key is not working! I do believe this is beneficial as you don’t reload your exam window in error, but, it could be frustrating from time to time when you type something erroneously and you need to select and press Del to remove. The Desktop and shortcuts were arranged well, and needed applications like web browser or Mirage console can be launched. There’s a pleasant interface for Remote Desktop Manager where you can find all needed RDP connection to servers or desktops without having to type username and password. The web browser had all the links in the Favorite Bar. At the time I am penning this, there is no extra 30 minute extension for Non-Native English speaker at No-Native English country, which is a bummer. There are actually thirty-nine question to respond within the 3 hours period, and this can be actually really hard for non-native English speakers like me. A number of questions take time to complete, so it’s best to pass by the questions that you cannot answer, and complete those you can. At the end of the thirty-nine questions, you’ll be able to return to the uncompleted questions if you have time. Don’t waste a long time on one single question! The exam blue print are available on my site at Szumigalski.com. It is well-organized and following it for the exam preparation can really help a great deal. Not surprisingly, the best is if you’ll have plenty of hands on experience! I’m actually very happy with the examination experience, even though I passed this time by small margin, but I understand what I missed for the exam, learn from the blunders and practice harder to acquaint myself with the environment. This certificates is going to open up your career prospects!”
