In the 76-video, intermediate-level course, Jeremy Cioara prepares learners for a career in a modern data center and to earn the CCNA Data Center certification.
Cisco’s CCNA Data Center certification comprises two exams — 200-150 DCICN and 200-155 DCICT. While the second exam of the certification validates data center-specific knowledge, 200-150 DCICN tests necessary networking skills.
“The data center is a simple network, but it’s feared by — everybody,” Cioara said. “It’s intense. You walk in and see more equipment than you’ve ever seen before, and hundreds, thousands, or even tens of thousands of users accessing those resources remotely.”
By mapping this course to the 200-150 DCICN exam objectives, Jeremy focuses on foundational networking topics related to the material covered in the CCNA ICND1 100-105 course. The only data center-specific material covers the configuration of Cisco Nexus data center switches.
Topics this course covers include:
TCP/IP and OSI Model
Designing data center networks
What this course includes:
10 hours of training
In-video quiz questions
