DCID: Designing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure v7

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. 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 will help you:
  • Prepare to take the exam, Designing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (300-610 DCID), which leads to the CCNP® Data Center and the Cisco Certified Specialist - Data Center Design certifications.
  • Make design choices for optimal data center infrastructure performance, virtualization, security, and automation
  • Master the practical and theoretical knowledge necessary to design a scalable, reliable, and intelligent data center based on Cisco technologies
  • Qualify for professional-level job roles in the high-demand area of enterprise-class data center environments

What's Included

  • Official Cisco courseware

  • Describe Locator/ID separation protocol
  • Design a solution that uses Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) for traffic forwarding
  • Describe hardware redundancy options; how to virtualize the network, compute, and storage functions; and virtual networking in the data center
  • Describe solutions that use fabric extenders and compare Cisco Adapter Fabric Extender (FEX) with single root input/output virtualization (SR-IOV)
  • Describe security threats and solutions in the data center
  • Describe advanced data center security technologies and best practices
  • Describe device management and orchestration in the data center
  • Describe the storage options for compute function and different Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) levels from a high-availability and performance perspective
  • Describe Fibre Channel concepts, topologies, architecture, and industry terms
  • Describe Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)
  • Describe security options in the storage network
  • Describe management and automation options for storage networking infrastructure
  • Describe Cisco UCS servers and use cases for various Cisco UCS platforms
  • Explain the connectivity options for fabric interconnects for southbound and northbound connections
  • Describe the hyperconverged solution and integrated systems
  • Describe the systemwide parameters for setting up a Cisco UCS domain
  • Describe role-based access control (RBAC) and integration with directory servers to control access rights on Cisco UCS Manager
  • Describe the pools that may be used in service profiles or service profile templates on Cisco UCS Manager
  • Describe the different policies in the service profile
  • Describe the Ethernet and Fibre Channel interface policies and additional network technologies
  • Describe the advantages of templates and the difference between initial and updated templates
  • Describe data center automation tools
