    Basic certification is vcp. After that you can do the advanced cources.

    All programs are listed here. To become vcdx you have to do an assesment for a board to defend your solution, if you are starting you have to start with vcp.

    I don't know the kost in india.

    You've got two Certificate paths now in VMware

    Datacenter Virtualization

    VMware Certified Professional (VCP)

    VMware Certified Advanced Professional (VCAP)

    VMware Certified Design Expert (VCDX)

    Desktop Virtualization

    VMware Certified Associate (VCA-DT)

    VMware Certified Professional (VCP-DT) – coming soon!
    VMware Certified Advanced Professional (VCAP-DT) – coming soon!

    To start and become a VCP you must have attended a VMware Course.

    But the new Desktop Virtualization Certificate VMware Certified Associate (VCA-DT), requires now course to attend, you can just take the exam.

    Virtualisation Growth around the globe is very strong, and espcially in developing countries with good Global Growth, such as India.

    However, which Virtualisation Company, organisations use, Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix Xen, or VMware Hypervisor, is up to the organisation.

    But VMware is a strong company.

    VMware is here to stay, and with the number of questions on EE, is a popular product.

    Here are the locations and VMware TRaining Centres offering VMware Training

    Many in Bangalore and Chennai, I would contact them for Training Costs - the cost of the course for VCP Certification TRack is 12 VMware Credits, $100 per credit, so approx $1200.

    Any questions please ask.

    if you plan to take up certification for VMware you need to attend vmware training from authorised training partner of VMware like HP Education, NIIT and couple of others you can find the list of the traning vendors as outlined hanccoka.

    The average cost for Vspher 4.1 training is around 50000/- and if you can negotiate with the vendor they will include the exam voucher which otherwise will cost you 9000/-

    so your total training cost will be around 60000/- for the VCP and subsequent tranings for next level will cost anywhere between 1.5 to 2 lakhs.

    as for career prospects VMware is a clear leader in virtualization and hopefully that will be the case for another 5 years.

    Cloud computing is going to be the next big thing after virtualization and you will have good prospects in this career for the years to come.
