Course Overview

Implementing and Troubleshooting the Cisco Cloud Infrastructure (CLDINF) 1.1 is a newly created five-day instructor-led training on the curriculum path leading to the Cisco Certified Cloud Professional certification. Additionally, it is designed to prepare data center engineers with the knowledge and hands-on experience to implement and troubleshooting Cisco cloud infrastructure.

Students will gain hands-on experience with configuring various cloud infrastructure components, such as Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS), Cisco UCS Director (UCSD), Cisco UCS Director Bare Metal Agent (BMA), Cisco MDS switches, Cisco Nexus 5500 Series switches, Cisco Nexus Cisco Nexus1000v, and Cisco Cloud Services Router (CSR). At the end of the course, students will be able to deploy ESXi hosts, provision VMs, and implement a variety of features such as vMotion and VXLANs.
