DCIHX - Implementing Cisco HyperFlex


The Implementing Cisco HyperFlex (DCIHX) course shows you how to deploy and use the Cisco® HyperFlex™ data platform to support multicloud workloads. You will become familiar with HyperFlex components and learn how to install, design, manage, and troubleshoot Cisco HyperFlex to support highly scalable and resilient multicloud implementations. You will also gain hands-on experience focused on installation, management, maintenance, and native replication, and you will explore cluster technologies as well as Cisco Intersight.™

This class will help you use Cisco HyperFlex to:
• Enable multicloud IT with an adaptive platform that powers any application anywhere with the simplicity of hyperconverged infrastructure;
• Gain hands-on experience using Cisco HyperFlex.
