DCCOR: Implementing and Operating Cisco Data Center Core Technologies

The Implementing and Operating Cisco Data Center Core Technologies (DCCOR) v1.0 course helps you prepare for the Cisco® CCNP® Data Center and CCIE® Data Center certifications and for advanced-level data center roles. In this course, you will master the skills and technologies you need to implement data center compute, LAN and SAN infrastructure. You will also learn the essentials of automation and security in data centers. You will get hands-on experience with deploying, securing, operating, and maintaining Cisco data center infrastructure including: Cisco MDS Switches and Cisco Nexus Switches; Cisco Unified Computing System™ (Cisco UCS®) B-Series Blade Servers, and Cisco UCS C-Series Rack Servers.

This course, including the self-paced material, helps prepare you to take the exam, Implementing Cisco Data Center Core Technologies (350-601 DCCOR), which leads to to the new CCNP Data Center, CCIE Data Center, and the Cisco Certified Specialist - Data Center Core certifications. The exam will be available beginning February 24, 2020.
