Understanding Cisco Data Center Foundations (DCFNDU)

In diesem Kurs lernen Sie die grundlegenden Kenntnisse und Fähigkeiten, die Sie benötigen, um Cisco® Data Center-Technologien zu konfigurieren, einschließlich: Netzwerk, Virtualisierung, Storage Area Networking und Unified Computing. Sie erhalten eine Einführung in die Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI™), Automatisierung und Cloud Computing. Sie sammeln praktische Erfahrungen mit der Konfiguration von Funktionen auf dem Cisco Nexus® Operating System (Cisco NX-OS) und Cisco Unified Computing System™ (Cisco UCS®).


Das Training ist eine gute Vorbereitung für Einstiegsaufgaben im anspruchsvollen Bereich von Rechenzentrumsumgebungen und zudem für Kurse innerhalb der CCNP Data Center Zertifizierung. Es dient jedoch nicht zur Examenvorbereitung.
