Work often with cloud tech or interested in learning more about it? Then you’ll want to watch Anthony Sequeira’s just-released “Cisco CCNA Cloud 210-451 CLDFND” course! The 23-video course covers basic cloud computing concepts and then moves into Cisco’s InterCloud tech. Anthony covers a wide range topics including virtual networking and storage devices. This training also aims to prepare learners for Cisco’s new Cisco CCNA Cloud certification exam!
We recently caught up with Anthony to get a few quick thoughts about his latest course, and how you can get the most from the training.
Q: Why should companies train their IT professionals in this technology? What value does it bring?
Everyone tends to think of something different when they hear the words “cloud technology.” Some immediately think of massive public cloud operations like Amazon and Google or DropBox, and they fail to grasp what studying cloud technology is all about. This course makes that absolutely clear. You see, cloud tech can benefit any company today, of any size. Any organization can benefit from virtualization, converged networking, revolutionary storage mechanisms, and everything else we cover in this important course.
Q: From a student-perspective, what did you keep in mind when creating this course?
While we always do this at CBT Nuggets, I worked extra hard to make sure this course is engaging and fun to learn from. There are some competing courses in cloud technology out there, and those that I have seen require a lot of Mountain Dew to get through them. And this is pretty crazy since we are talking about some of the most revolutionary topics to hit IT in a long, long time!
Q: Any out-of-the-box tips for students to get the most out of your course?
Students should definitely consider grabbing the free UCS Emulator and have fun with the Cisco UCS system.
Q: What’s one real-world application someone can expect to use, thanks to this course?
After this course, a student should be able to describe, in great detail, the various technologies that can truly revolutionize a modern data center. Whether the main interest is lowering efforts or costs, students should be able to design specific solutions that make a huge impact.
Q: What was your favorite Nugget to create?
It was so fun to create the Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) Nuggets. What a great challenge to explain these technologies in simple terms for our students. These are two great examples of technologies that many instructors struggle to teach because they get lost in all of the technobabble.
Q: What’s the ONE thing you hope learners take away from this training?
I really hope this course sparks students to strive to learn more in the five major areas of the course: Cloud Tech in General, Compute, Networking, Storage, and Automation.
