Course Description

The Designing the FlexPod Solution (FPDESIGN) Training course demonstrates you how to access the FlexPod solution design process concerning the contemporary data center obstacles.

The training course at Microtek Learning specifically gives a comprehensive knowledge of the analytics and reconnaissance evaluates computing solution performance features and needs.

The course goes after a standard design method that is used to generate FlexPod designs. FlexPod components, architectures, use cases, design principles, and preconfigured solutions are scrutinized.

Using Cisco and NetApp tools, learners create FlexPod designs that correlate to a real-world scenario.  Besides, the course will explain the hardware components of the FlexPod and the process to select appropriate hardware for a prearranged series of requirements.

This course is part of the Cisco and NetApp FlexPod Specialist (FLEXPOD) Certifications. 

NOTE: If you already have the experience to run FlexPod system, then you don't need to opt this course.
