Course Description

About the Course

The Designing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCID) course focuses on data center design based on Cisco solutions and technologies. The course includes theoretical content, as well as design-oriented case studies that are in the form of activities. The course is designed to help students prepare for Cisco CCNP Data Center certification and for professional-level data center roles.

 

The course includes information on designing data centers with Cisco components and technologies. It covers network designs with virtualization, Layer 2 and Layer 3 technologies and routing protocols, and data center interconnect design options. Also covered are device virtualization technologies such as virtual data centers and network function virtualization with virtual appliances, including virtual switches, virtual routers, and virtual firewalls. Storage and SAN design is covered, with explanation of Fibre Channel networks and Cisco Unified Fabric. Design practices for the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) solution based on Cisco UCS B-Series and C-Series servers, Cisco UCS Manager, and Cisco Unified Fabric are covered. Network management technologies include UCS Manager, Cisco Prime Data Center Network Manager (DCNM), and UCS Director.

 

You’ll master the professional-level skills and technologies needed to design data center infrastructure based on Cisco and other industry pervasive technologies.
