Valuable Features:

Disclosure: My company is a VMware reseller. Ease of use, functionality, established product, works very will with almost any prime time OS, very thought-out application, works with the developer community to improve, has deep pocket organization like EMC to help propel them into the future

Room for Improvement:

Moved away from local/domain end-user authentication to a single-sign on authentication mechanism, introduced a single-point of failure, added additional complexity that came be overcome with proper training

Since you are reseller, you might have idea on vcp certifications. Could you please advise whether it is necessary to have trainings from vmware if you would like to go for vcp certifications even if you have hands on experience?

I keep up with VMware certifications. The entry point on their certifications, the VCA, does not require an official VMware class as a pre-req before you take the exam. The VCP, however, does require an official VMware class before you can take the exam. They are trying to keep the quality of the certification recipients at a premium.
