In this intermediate Cisco cloud training, Anthony Sequeira prepares learners to take the 210-451 CLDFND exam, which is one of the two exams required to earn the CCNA Cloud certification.
Cisco’s CCNA Cloud certification is a valuable tool for keeping up with the pace of change. As Cisco becomes increasingly cloud-focused, CCNA Cloud can help you succeed in the growing number of organizations that use Cisco cloud solutions. If you haven’t moved over to a Cisco cloud solution yet, then it may be just around the corner.
Once you're done with this Cisco training, you'll know how to understand and use fundamental cloud characteristics and deployment models. You’ll also learn about Cisco InterCloud, Unified Compute, Unified Fabric, and Unified Storage. By completing this 210-451 CLDFND course, network administrators will be better prepared to advance into roles that lead to network engineer positions.
For supervisors, this Cloud training can be used for 210-451 CLDFND exam prep, in on-boarding new network administrators, or as part of a team training plan.
CCNA Cloud: What You Need to Know
For any network administrator using this training for exam preparation, our CCNA Cloud course maps to the Cisco 210-451 CLDFND exam objectives, and covers topics such as:
- Common cloud characteristics and "as a service" models
- Using cloud deployment models and components of the Cisco intercloud solution
- Deploying virtualized cloud network architectures with Cisco Nexus products
- Cloud storage provisioning concepts and Cisco storage network devices
- Cloud infrastructure administration and reporting
- Provisioning, managing, and monitoring Cisco-based cloud services,
- Cloud remediation – serviceability, root cause analysis, and backup and restore
Who Should Take CCNA Cloud Training?
This cloud training is considered associate-level Cisco training, which means it was designed for newer network administrators. This 210-451 CLDFND and 210-455 CLDADM course is valuable for new IT professionals with at least a year of experience with cloud infrastructure and experienced network administrators looking to validate their Cisco skills.
New or aspiring network administrators. If you’re a new network administrator, you might consider setting your sights on cloud network administration. It’s not like on-premise data centers are vanishing, but more and more companies are shifting their data to the cloud. And as demand for complex cloud solutions rises, you’ll want to be poised to take advantage. This training will help you prepare for Cisco’s cloud certification and make sure you understand all the basics of administering a network on the cloud.
Experienced network administrators. Network administrators with a few years of experience will benefit from taking the CCNA Cloud training by reinforcing their foundational networking expertise with the knowledge needed to administer Cisco-based cloud solutions. Cisco’s Associate level certification is due to be rolled into a single consolidated credential in 2020. However, CCNA Cloud credential holders will keep their CCNA Cloud and also receive the new CCNA certification.
