Cisco Data Center CCIE Unified Computing Workshop (DCXUC)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline

Course Overview

The instructor-led Cisco® Data Center CCIE® Unified Computing Workshop (DCXUC), Version 1 is designed for candidates who are preparing to take the Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert – Data Center Certification lab exam. This course will challenge you with complex lab scenarios that provide a deep dive into the detailed configuration, optimization, and integration of protocols and features found in a virtualized data center unified computing infrastructure. This course will cover configuration of Cisco Unified Computing System™ (Cisco UCS®), encompassing both Cisco Nexus® 1000V and Cisco Application Networking Services (ANS). The labs will provide detailed insight into the areas defined in the Cisco UCS, Cisco ANS, and Cisco Nexus 1000V sections of the Cisco CCIE DC lab blueprint culminating on the last day in a timed challenge lab. Although approximately 80 percent of the course consists of labs, instructors will provide students an understanding of how to interpret Cisco exam questions, a detailed solution for each challenge, common mistakes, troubleshooting techniques, and validation. As you learn your weaknesses, instructors will offer chalk-talks to help you better understand protocols and work through deficiencies.

This is a Cisco Learning Services course and is delivered directly by Cisco.
