BDA (Brocade Distinguished Architect) Certification

I have two questions in regards to the BDA cert.

1. What recognition does this cert offers?

2. What do you recieve after getting this cert?

Re: BDA (Brocade Distinguished Architect) Certification

The BDA represents that you have detailed mastery of many skills, from FICON, to SAN to IP. AFter getting this level of achievement, you wil receive a special logo, a certificate, and a to be determined gift. We are looking at having a special area on our website where we would post the name of those who wish to be listed. For any other questinos feel free to contact me directly at jcannata@brocade.com.

Hi, Joe

Will BDA ever practice exam like CCIE?

BDA is unlike CCIE. It is an earned credential as a  result of achieving multiple tracks. There is no exam associated with it.

No they won't, to blend 3 specialties in one lab exam would be pretty hard.

Re: BDA (Brocade Distinguished Architect) Certification

Looking at the BDA requirements in the certification matrix, I see that with my passing of the BCVRE exam today coupled with the BCEFP that I passed a few months ago, I have completed the Advanced level requirements for the Converged track.  However, with everything list below it in the Intermediate and Introductory levels, I've only completed the BCNE and the BAIC.

 

Do I need to complete the Intermediate and Introductory levels to successfully fulfil the Converged track requirements towards BDA, or does the fact that I've completed the Advanced level requirements mean that I've also automatically completed the Converged track?

 

I've got people here telling me different things, but I don't think either of them actually know what they're talking about.

Re: BDA (Brocade Distinguished Architect) Certification

Hello Mark, all levels must be completed in order to complete a track. There are certain topics covered in the intermediate portions that are not covered in advanced, and certain topics covered in the introductory that aren't covered in the other two. I hope that helps!
