Implementing Cisco Data Center Virtualization and Automation (DCVAI)


Implementing Cisco Data Center Virtualization and Automation (DCVAI)


DCVAI is a five-day skills building course focused on the implementation and deployment automation of Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) and Cisco Nexus switches. The course provides rich, hands-on experience in building a data center solution based on Cisco ACI. Learners are introduced to the automation capabilities offered by Python and RESTful APIs in combination with Cisco ACI and Cisco Nexus switches.

The course is designed to help tudents prepare for Cisco CCNP Data Center certification and for professional-level data center roles.

Quién debería asistir
