The DCID - Designing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure 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.

You will learn 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. You will also gain design experience with network management technologies including Cisco UCS Manager, Cisco Data Center Network Manager (DCNM), and Cisco UCS Director. You can expect theoretical content as well as design-oriented case studies in the form of activities.

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