DCIT - Troubleshooting Cisco Data Center Infrastructure


The Troubleshooting Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCIT) v7.0 course shows you how to troubleshoot LAN, SAN, Cisco® Data Center Unified Fabric, Cisco Unified Computing System™ (Cisco UCS®), and Cisco Application-Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI®).You will learn methodologies and tools to identify issues that may occur in data center network architecture. You will get extensive hands-on practice troubleshooting installation, configuration and interconnectivity issues on Cisco Multilayer Director Switch (MDS) switches, Cisco Nexus® switches, Cisco Fabric Extenders (FEXs), Cisco UCS, Cisco ACI, and more.

This course helps prepare you to take the exam:
• 300-615 Troubleshooting Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCIT).

The 300-615 DCIT exam certifies your knowledge of troubleshooting a data center infrastructure including network, compute platforms, storage network, automation, management, and operations.

After you pass 300-615 DCIT, you earn the Cisco Certified Specialist - Data Center Operations certification and you satisfy the concentration exam requirement for new CCNP Data Center certification.
