Implementing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (CS-DCII v6.0) v6.0
About this course
The five day intermediate-level course serves as the perfect training program to help prepare students for the Cisco Certified Network Professional examination and a variety of data center related roles and responsibilities. Focusing on the implementation of Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders (FEXs) and Cisco Nexus switches, the Implementing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure course helps build the skills you’ll need to perform professional Fibre Channel operations.
The course also focuses on the use of Cisco MDS switches for the implementation of SAN, the Data Center Unified Fabric, and LAN, making it a great and extremely comprehensive IT ops training course. In addition to covering the theoretical aspect, the course also focuses on hands-on experience to equip students with the tools and skills they will need to become a data center professional.
Upon completion of the Implementing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure course, you should be able to:
