Cisco and NetApp FlexPod Specialist (FLEXPOD)

FlexPod solutions combine storage, networking, and server components into a flexible architecture that services a variety of business workloads. FlexPod solutions not only speed the deployment of infrastructure and business-critical applications, but also reduce cost, complexity, and risk. We offer two Cisco and NetApp FlexPod certifications:

  • FlexPod Design Specialist
  • FlexPod Implementation and Administration Specialist
FlexPod Certification Requirements

The FlexPod Design exam (NS0-170) and the FlexPod Implementation and Administration exam (NS0-171) are each 60-minute exams that test system engineers on their knowledge of the FlexPod solution. These exams test a candidate’s knowledge of the tools and standards for assessing computing solution performance characteristics and requirements. The exams also test a candidate’s knowledge of the hardware components associated with the FlexPod solution and the process for selecting proper hardware for a given set of requirements.

Logos and certificates will be granted to those individuals who achieve FlexPod Specialist certification.
