Become a VxRail Xpert (open to partners!)

Join the growing VxRail Xpert Community

 

What is it? A community for VxRail Xperts who are advocates in their selling circles regardless of organizational alignment and position in his/her company. Although this forum is not exclusive to SE’s, it will focus on pre-sales efforts and initiatives. Our goal is to provide the information, knowledge and tools to cultivate consistency for architecting, sizing, and configuring any VxRail Appliance solution. This is not a forum for post-sales or customer support.

 

Who is eligible? Any Dell Technologies employee or Dell EMC partner who pass the VxRail Xpert assessment exam. VMware partners are welcome to join as long as they are also Dell EMC partners.
