Apparently there’s a pent up demand for training materials on the Cisco Introducing Cisco Data Center Technologies (DCICT) exam, also known as the 640-916, required for getting your Cisco CCNA Datacenter certification. Have no fear! I’m hard at work creating course content that covers every bit of the exam using a combination of my saucy wit, live lab environment, and ability to prattle on for hours at a time.
Wait, you want more details? OK – here’s the scoop (don’t tell anyone I told you). I’ve broken down the DCICT material into these two courses:
- DCICT Course 1 (Now Available!): Nexus, Advanced Switching, and Storage Area Networking (SAN) – this includes topics like FabricPath, vPC, campus architecture, VDCs, SAN topologies, zoning, masking, aliasing, and much more.
- DCICT Course 2: Unified Fabric, Cisco UCS, and Network Services – here we focus on topics like FCoE, CoS, QoS, a plethora of UCS architecture and configuration, the Nexus 1000v, ACE, WAAS, and oodles more.
The goal is to have everything in the can for the 1st course by end of January, and then follow up with the 2nd course by end of March. This allows you to start working on the first part a bit earlier, instead of waiting for me to finish the entire thing in one swoop. I’ll admit that the one-two punch of the Holidays and wrapping up the Networking for VMware Administrators book has put a lot of pressure on my time, and so I’m a bit further behind than I’d like to be! Perhaps you have a cloning device I could borrow?
