DCID 300-160 Training

Designing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCID) v6.0 is a five-day instructor-led course that focuses on data center design based on Cisco solutions. The course includes theoretical content, as well as design-oriented case studies that are in the form of testlets. The course is designed to help students prepare for Cisco CCNP® Data Center certification and for professional-level data center roles.

The course includes information on designing data centers with Cisco components and technologies. It covers network designs with virtualization, Layer 2 and Layer 3 technologies and routing protocols, and data center interconnect design options. Also covered are device virtualization technologies such as virtual data centers and network function virtualization with virtual appliances, including virtual switches, virtual routers, and virtual firewalls. Storage and SAN design is covered, with explanation of Fibre Channel networks and Cisco Unified Fabric.

Design practices for the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) solution based on Cisco UCS B-Series and C-Series servers and Cisco UCS Manager are covered. Network management technologies include UCS Manager, Cisco Prime Data Center Network Manager, and Cisco UCS Director.
