AHEAD Senior Solutions Architect One of Only 15 Double VCDX Holders Worldwide

CHICAGO, Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Chris Wahl, a senior solutions architect for AHEAD, is one of the first to attain the VMware Certified Design Expert–Network Virtualization (VCDX-NV) certification.

Chris, along with everyone who currently holds the certification, was specially invited to the NSX Ninja program to help build, shape, and trial the VCDX-NV process for the VMware NSBU (Network and Security Business Unit) and Certification Business Unit.

The VCDX-NV validates the ability to design around complex requirements, constraints, and risks for clients looking to transform their business-facing infrastructure processes by way of efficient, virtualized networking with VMware NSX. "As we continue down the path towards a fully software-defined data center, organizations must work with complex requirements around network connectivity and security features that are still largely mired in physical, manual processes. Having the ability to abstract network services into a policy-driven, VM-centric model is a key next step in modern data center design," observes Wahl.

"Many companies are currently looking to better understand software-defined networking (SDN) and how it can affect their future data center design. With this VCDX-NV certification, clients can feel confident that AHEAD can deliver high-quality prescriptive consulting around SDN and the software-defined data center," said AHEAD CTO Eric Kaplan.

"In addition to this news, we are excited to announce we already have NSX running in AHEAD's new lab, where clients can view sample designs and discuss use cases through AHEAD's Lab and Solutions Briefings. They can also interact with our experts, including Chris and two other architects with a VCDX in data center virtualization," added Kaplan.
