Portrix is already an OPN specialized partner for Sun ZFS Storage Appliances and Sun Flash Storage and has a few more applications in the pipeline. But the one specialization we are most excited about is for VDI. A lot of the content and some of the tests have been online for a while now but the final tests for implementation specialists have gotten postponed to the next quarter at least twice.
Currently the specialization guide states an activation date of FY13-Q1 which ends in August. And it looks like this time it could be for real – the exam 1Z1-559 is finally available in beta and already scheduled with our local testing center. If all goes well we could be among the first partners globally to be recognized as VDI specialists.
