Welcome to Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) Data Center DCACI.

Implementing Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (DCACI)

exam is a concentration exam/specialization and part of the Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) Data Center. It requires 2 Exams to be a CCNP Data Center. 1st, the Core exam DCCOR and concentration exams such a DCACI

The exam covers the configuration and management of Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches in ACI mode, how to connect the Cisco ACI fabric to external networks introduces Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) integration. You will learn to implement key capabilities such as fabric discovery, policies, connectivity, VMM integration, and many others.

Cisco ACI is an SDN solution that defines its network infrastructure based on network policies. To make this possible, Cisco has created the ACI Fabric OS, which is run by all systems within the ACI network. This shared OS makes it possible for the various switches within the ACI network to translate policies into infrastructure designs.

This 12-hour course will help you understand the underlying technologies Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) Solution.

It is highly recommended that you are CCNA or at least knowledgeable in the basics of Networking.
