VMWare MCSA equivalent

I'm curious about VMWare certs. I was wondering which VMWare cert is equivalent to Microsoft's MCSA. Thanks!

    That's an apples to oranges question. To answer your question though, the VCP MCSA level. The VCAP's are MCSE level, the VCDX is MCM/MCA level. It all depends on your level of experience and aptitude.

    Although VCP-DV is only one exam, I would say the level of knowledge/experience required is similar to what Microsoft intended for the current MCSA cert (also not an entry level, IMO, but not an advanced cert either).

    I would stress that an "entry level" or "beginner" VMware datacenter cert does not really exist. Some knowledge is assumed in the domains of networking, operating systems, hardware, and storage.

    Thanks for the replies. I have decided to pursue getting the MCSA first before diving in to VMware certs.
