Cisco® Implementing Cisco®Data Center Infrastructure v6.1 (DCII)

Course Overview

Implementing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCII) v6.1 is a five-day instructor-led course that is designed to help students prepare for the Cisco CCNP® Data Center certification and for professional-level data center roles. The focus of this skills-building course is implementation of LAN, SAN, and Data Center Unified Fabric using Cisco MDS switches, Cisco Nexus switches, and Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders (FEXs). The course provides rich, hands-on experience of implementing Cisco data center infrastructure.
