EMCIE - EMC Implementation Engineer

 I recently got my EMCIE certificate. Here I like to share that EMC VNX Unified system is very powerful storage and ideal for mid to large size infrastructures. It supports Flash and SAS for performance and NL-SAS for capacity requirements. Besides many new features (FAST Cache, Improved UI) , one VNX feature which I like most is that it has DAE / BUS  numberings instead of LED lights, this helps tremendously while expanding storage enclosures.
To sit for EMCIE exam you have to prepare for both VNX block and File level. It will be very exciting to learn VNX as EMC provide lots of guides and even simulators to help understand its working. For Storage Administrators, I can recommend EMCSA exam, [EMC Storage Administrator].
You will also get a badge pin along with electronic certificate after passing the exam. One more thing the exam course will be revised after 31st December 2012, so plan it accordingly.
