Designing Cisco Data Center Unified Computing Infrastructure (DCIDUC) v6.0 is a two-day instructor-led course that focuses on data center design based on Cisco unified computing solutions. The course includes theoretical content, as well as design-oriented case studies and exercises. The course is designed to help students prepare for Cisco Channel Partner Data Center Program requirements and for professional-level data center roles. The course includes information on designing data centers with Cisco components and technologies, including infrastructure design, compute connectivity design, and compute resource parameters design.

The goal of the course is to enable engineers to choose the components and design a scalable, reliable, and intelligent data center.

Prerequisites

It is recommended that delegates have the following skills and knowledge before attending this course:

  • Implement data center networking (LAN and SAN)
