brocade, it certification, free examHave you ever considered obtaining a Brocade certification? Even if you haven’t, you might well want it now since Brocade offers a free certification on Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). This includes the exam itself, as well as free training and 60-day free trial of the Brocade vRouter software. The offer is temporary, so keep that in mind and register while it lasts here.

What’s The Story With Brocade Networking?

Brocade is really pushing its virtual routing products – both software and routers. This is definitely worth looking into since Brocade Vyatta vRouters and VCS Fabric technology enable NFV in data centers and support efficient and elastic network architectures that can scale up or down to match current application needs in dynamic workload situations. Obviously, this results in significant reduction in hardware costs for network infrastructure – according to Brocade, these savings can go up as high as 90%. It also allows for better usage of the data center and networking resources. More info about Brocade technology is available here.

So, for now, becoming Brocade Certified vRouter Engineer (BCVRE) is free. This offer also includes a 60-day free trial of the Brocade Vyatta vRouter software plus free online training. Then you take the exam and end up with a Brocade Certified vRouter Engineer (BCVRE) credential.
