Create an effective Data Center
Enterprise-sized data must be created by experts who can put practical solutions into place in enterprise-class data centres. Your ability to manage an efficient data centre is demonstrated by your Cisco CCNP Data Center certification
On the DCCOR exam, you can demonstrate your expertise in the application of key data centre technologies such network, computing, storage network, automation, and security. You can also highlight your area of expertise with a concentration test of your choice. You must pass both tests to become certified.
Possible job roles
Senior network designer
Senior data center engineer
Consulting systems engineer
No formal prerequisites for CCNP data center. CCNP candidates often also have three to five years of experience implementing security solutions.
All Cisco certifications are valid for 3 years.
Pass any one professional concentration exam and earn 40 CE credits or earn 80 continuing education credits.

Troubleshooting Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCIT) v7.0
You can learn how to troubleshoot LAN, SAN, Cisco® Data Center Unified Fabric, Cisco Unified Computing SystemTM (Cisco UCS®), and Cisco Application-Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI®) by taking the Troubleshooting Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCIT) v7.0 course. You will gain knowledge of strategies and instruments for locating potential problems in the network architecture of a data centre. On Cisco Multilayer Director Switch (MDS) switches, Cisco Nexus® switches, Cisco Fabric Extenders (FEXs), Cisco UCS, Cisco ACI, and more, you will gain a great deal of practical experience troubleshooting installation, configuration, and interconnection problems. You can recertify with this course’s 50 Continuing Education (CE) credits
Implementing Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (DCACI) v1.1
You can learn how to implement and administer the Cisco® Nexus® 9000 Series Switches in Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI®) mode by taking the Implementing Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (DCACI) v1.1 course. You will learn the principles of Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) integration, how to set up and administer Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches in ACI mode, and how to link the Cisco ACI fabric to external networks and services. Implementing crucial features like fabric discovery, rules, connectivity, VMM integration, and more will give you practical experience. You will receive 40 Continuing Education (CE) credits for recertification after completing this course.
Implementing Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure–Advanced (DCACIA) v1.1
You can learn how to integrate the features of the Cisco® Nexus® 9000 Series Switches in Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI®) mode by taking the Implementing Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure-Advanced (DCACIA) v1.1 course. As well as the protocols used in the underlying fabric, you will learn how to configure and administer Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches in ACI mode, which offers improved management and policy framework. The deployment of Cisco ACI Multi-Pod and Nexus Dashboard Orchestrator (NDO) are also covered in the course, along with how to leverage Cisco ACI as a policy-driven solution that unifies software and hardware. Implementing sophisticated ACI features like the Rogue Endpoint Feature, Transit Routing, VRF Route Leaking, Contracts and Zoning Rules, Policy Based Redirect to Layer 4-7 Service Node, and Multi-Pod will give you practical experience.
Implementing Automation for Cisco Data Center Solutions (DCAUI) v1.1
You can take the 300-635 Automating Cisco Data Center Solutions (DCAUTO) certification exam after completing this course. Because it offers the key underlying knowledge necessary for success, Introducing Automation for Cisco Solutions (CSAU) is required prior to enrolling in Implementing Automation for Cisco Data Center Solutions (DCAUI). You can use the 24 Continued Education (CE) credits from this course towards your recertification as well.
