CLDINF – Implémenter et Dépanner l’Infrastructure Cloud Cisco


Implementing and Troubleshooting the Cisco Cloud Infrastructure (CLDINF) is a newly created five day instructor-led training designed to prepare you with the knowledge and hands-on experience to implement and troubleshooting Cisco cloud infrastructure. The hands-on labs gives you the knowledge to configure 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).

This course enables cloud support engineers to successfully build, maintain and troubleshoot cloud infrastructure at a cloud service provider.
