Any Advice?

Looking at cracking open the books and learning cloud (I use that term with reserves) technologies. I learn the fastest if I am studying to get certified in something so my questions is… where to start?

I was thinking possibly starting with VM certs, but I really have no idea where I would like to end up.

So far I have looked at

-VCA/P cloud and VCA6-CMA/HC (People say skip VCA and go VCP?)
-AWS Architect

Mind you my end goal is to get a very good understating of these technologies to make an informed decision on the direction I would like to take my career in security. I have some experience in AWS and found it very easy and fun, but no experience in any other vendor specific technology.

Any advice would help

    If you're ultimate end goal is security, aren't there virtualization/cloud specific security books out there?

    If you want to learn about virtualization, then start with VCP-DCV. Datacenter virtualization is the foundation. If you have a good grasp of it, other VMware tracks become easier.

    After VCP-DCV, I would take a look at NSX. The security it enables is very interesting.
