Implementing Cisco Data Center Virtualization and Automation (DCVAI) v6.0 is a five-day instructor-led course that is designed to help students prepare for the Cisco CCNP Data Center certification and for professional-level data center roles. The focus of this skills-building course is 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.

  • Implement infrastructure virtualization solutions, such as VDC, VRFs, Cisco Nexus 1000v, and Cisco AVS
  • Identify programmability methods and program Cisco Nexus switches using XML, Python, and NXAPI
  • Implement a Cisco ACI solution that provides fabric connectivity to bare-metal hosts, virtual machines, and external Layer 2 and Layer 3 domains
  • Integrate Cisco ACI with virtual machine managers, such as VMware vCenter
  • Enforce application policies in intra- and intertenant scenarios
  • Deploy Cisco AVS and microsegmentation
  • Program Cisco ACI using Python, RESTful APIs, and Arya
  • Orchestrate Cisco ACI using the Cisco UCS Director
  • Insert L4-L7 services into the Cisco ACI fabric
  • Monitor Cisco ACI deployment using atomic counters and other monitoring tools

Excellent.
Great delivery skills by the facilitator and good course content.

it had already been recommended to me before but due to lack of time and I didn't dare decision, I definitely regret taking classes earlier with TechData.

Great info overall and really appreciate the elaborate explanations from the instructor.

Myles was a fantastic instructor! The training was spot on and the delivery was excellent! I highly recommend ExitCertified for education/training!

Good course, a lot of content to fill in such short time, but as a basic introduction was really interesting.
