    Even then the Storage+ is still still recognized currently to update all CompTIA CE certs except CASP. The Storage+ is also accepted after retirement for the SNIA certifications. It's still a solid choice.
    These articles and posts are my own opinion and do not reflect the view of my employer.

    Yes, and it doesn't get retired until January 16th, 2016 so you should have time.

    Apart from Storage+ and SNIAs range of certs, it's all vendor specific stuff. In fact, the vendor specific stuff has more recognition than Storage+/SNIA.

    The Top 5 mentioned by fuz1on are a good indication where to head.

    I did Storage+ mostly to get better grounding in Storage for VMware/Hyper-V. If I was looking at a Storage career, I'd look at CCNA DC, Brocade, NetApp etc.
