Designing Cisco Data Center Unified Computing Training v5.0

Designing Cisco Data Center Unified Computing Training v5.0 (DCUCD)

Introduction:

Designing Cisco Data Center Unified Computing Training v5.0 Course with Hands-on Labs

This Designing Cisco Data Center Unified Computing Training v5.0 course is designed for those people who need to evaluate an existing data center in order to determine the requirements to design a scalable, reliable, and intelligent data center. The design principals in this Designing Cisco Data Center Unified Computing Training v5.0 course are based on Cisco UCS Servers using a virtualization solution such as vSphere, Hyper-V, or XenServer, server operating systems such as Windows or Linux, and whatever applications are needed by the end users.

Customize It:

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
