CCNA Data Center

Overview

The data center has come a long way from its hardware- and database-centric roots. Data center professionals today need to understand how their field intersects with automation, cloud, software-defined technologies, and virtualization . Agility is the hallmark of today's successful data center. Built for rapid application deployment and supported by a highly elastic infrastructure, the data center has become core to businesses competing in our digital era.

CCNA Data Center certification provides the confidence and nimbleness you need to install, configure, and maintain data center technology. Gain grounding in data center infrastructure, data center networking concepts and technologies, storage networking, unified computing, network virtualization, data center automation and orchestration, and Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI).
