VCDX (VMware certified design expert)

VCDX (VMware certified design expert) is VMware's highest certification level. There are currently three solution tracks for VCDX: Data center virtualization, cloud and end-user computing.

For VCDX certification, the candidate needs to pass exams in enterprise administration and design. After passing the exams, the candidate submits a design plan for a large virtualized infrastructure environment. If the plan is accepted, the candidate presents and defends the plan before a panel of VCDX holders. During the defense portion, the applicant explains why certain decisions were made, answers questions from panel members and attempts to troubleshoot a theoretical problem posed by the board. 

VCDX certification candidates must first acquire the VMware Certified Professional (VCP), and advanced professional (VCAP) administration and design certifications.

The article is incorrect in saying that a VCDX candidate must first pass a VCA exam. This is not required.
