DCICT v6.2 Introducing Cisco Data Center Technologies 

Presenting Cisco Data Center Technologies gives a prologue to Cisco advancements and items that are sent in the server farm. System virtualization, arrange innovations, brought together registering, computerization and coordination and the Cisco Application-Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI) are altogether included. As this is a basic level course the information that is given is focused at people who need to perform fundamental arrangement errands. The hands-on lab practices concentrate on arranging highlights on Cisco Nexus Operating System (Cisco NX-OS), Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS) and Cisco UCS Director.

This course is worth 30 Credits in the Continuing Education Program
