question for the Cisco guys..

As some of you might know, I'm a VMware guy.

Well, soon, VMware ESX will come with Cisco's NX-OS embedded into the hypervisor and used as the basis for the virtual swtches that VMware uses. They are calling it a Nexus 1000v switch.

That is friggin fantastic but leaves me with a small problem. I know nothing about NX-OS. I was looking into going after my CCNA but it appears that it only teaches about the Cisco IOS.

So my question, does Cisco have a cert path for the NX-OS? If so, what is it?
If not, what is the best path to get myself up to speed on the NX-OS?

I personally have not stayed up on this portion, but from what I understand it is supposed to be similar to IOS. With that said, it appears that is true...
