Course Overview

Top

This two-day instructor-led course focuses on data center design based on Cisco unified computing solutions. The course includes information on designing data centers with Cisco components and technologies, including infrastructure design, compute connectivity design, and compute resource parameters design. Theoretical content, as well as design-oriented case studies and exercises are used to put the knowledge learned  into practice.The course is designed to help students prepare for Cisco Channel Partner Data Center Program requirements and for professional-level data center roles.

The goal of the course is to enable engineers to design and choose the components required for a scalablereliable, and intelligent data center.
