eGroup Mints 7 New vSphere 4 VMWare Technical Sales Professionals
Earlier this week we had a little contest around the office – that is, who could get in and get their vSphere4 VTSP accomplished the quickest. The VMware Technical Sales Professional Program (VTSP) provides foundational technical knowledge for pre-sales engineering individuals to certify them to successfully architect, engage, and participate in a VMware solutions sales cycle. For VMware partners, the VTSP is a pre-requisite that must be completed before you can obtain Technical Pre-Sales Competency Accreditations.
With 7 of our top VMware engineers in the room, we pulled up Partner University and plowed through the content –digesting massive amounts of new and updated information and “testing out” along the way. What a rush!
The courses and tests consisted of:
· vSphere 4: Architecture
· vSphere 4: Installation
· vSphere 4: vCenter Server Management
· vSphere 4: VM Management
As we broke for lunch, with two tests to go, the tension was running high as we all jockeyed for position. I don’t think I’ve ever seen people eat faster.
At the end of the day, we were proud to sit back and reflect on our accomplishment – that is the minting of 7 new vSphere 4 VMware Technical Sales Professionals - all with the “add-on” Desktop Competency (VMware View) and Business Continuity (SRM) specialties.
Now on to all of the new VCP4 content ! (Beta available June 29th, publicly available August 1st!)
