This course is aimed at new engineers that will be operating in a Data Center environment.
This new assoicate level course has been designed to introduce delegates to the three primary technologies that are used in the Cisco Data Center. The introductory level of knowledge that is taught in these courses is aimed at individuals that will be performing only the more basic configuration tasks. The labs will focus on viewing configurations, as opposed to making configuration changes or creating new topologies.
