Some companies are getting ready for the future by using new technologies such as Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) so that their networks are more secure, speedy, and efficient, making it compulsory for VMware Architects to learn new skills. Since most of the current deployments are taking place in VMware vSphere environments, developers are using new technologies like containers, increasing the proportion of workloads that run in public clouds. It is necessary, thus, for network virtualization to expand to offer a complete range of networking as well as security services in emerging environments, besides on vSphere. Future VMware Architects should take note of this.
Should have a bachelor’s degree in a relevant field and experience proportional to the size and scale of the project where they would work. They usually report to a CTO (Chief Technology Officer) or a CIO (Chief Information Officer). One has to be a VCDX (VMware Certified Design Expert), with experience in Data Center virtualization and cloud computing with the help of VMware’s virtualization software, vSphere. Other certifications that would help them are vRealize Suite, Horizon, and vSAN, among others.
