DCID Certification Training

The Designing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCID) v7.0 course helps you master design and deployment options focused on Cisco® data center solutions and technologies across network, compute, virtualization, storage area networks, automation, and security.

Our 5- day, instructor-led DCID (Designing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure) training and certification boot camp in Washington, DC Metro, Tysons Corner, VA, Columbia, MD or Live Online helps you master design and deployment options focused on Cisco® data center solutions and technologies across network, compute, virtualization, storage area networks, automation, and security. It will teach you:

  • Design practices for the Cisco Unified Computing System™ (Cisco UCS®) solution based on Cisco UCS B-Series and C-Series servers, Cisco UCS Manager, and Cisco Unified Fabric
  • Design experience with network management technologies including Cisco UCS Manager, Cisco Data Center Network Manager (DCNM), and Cisco UCS Director.

This course will prepare you for the Designing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (300-610 DCID) exam which leads to the new CCNP Data Center and the Cisco Certified Specialist — Data Center Design certifications.
