DCACI - Implementing Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure


The Implementing Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (DCACI) v1.0 course shows you how to deploy and manage the Cisco® Nexus® 9000 Series Switches in Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI®) mode. You will learn how to configure and manage Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches in ACI mode, how to connect the Cisco ACI fabric to external networks and services, and the fundamentals of Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) integration. You will gain hands-on practice implementing key capabilities such as fabric discovery, policies, connectivity, VMM integration, and more.

This course will help you:
• Gain the skills and hands-on practice integrating the enhanced, automated capabilities of Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches in ACI mode for quicker application deployment;
• Get the knowledge for protocols, solutions and designs to acquire professional-level and expert-level data center job roles.

This course helps you prepare to take the exam:
• 300-620 Implementing Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (DCACI).

The 300-620 DCACI exam certifies your knowledge of Cisco switches in ACI mode including configuration, implementation, and management.

After you pass 300-620 DCACI, you earn the Cisco Certified Specialist – Data Center ACI Implementation certification and you satisfy the concentration exam requirement for the CCNP Data Center certification.
