Designing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCID) v6.2 is a five-day training course about designing data centers with Cisco components and technologies. The course covers network designs with virtualization, Layer 2 and Layer 3 technologies, routing protocols, and data center interconnect design options. Also covered are device virtualization technologies such as virtual data centers and network function virtualization with virtual appliances including virtual switches, virtual routers, and virtual firewalls. Storage and SAN design is covered, with explanation of Fibre Channel networks and Cisco Unified Fabric. Design practices for the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) solution based on Cisco UCS B-Series and C-Series servers and Cisco UCS Manager are also covered. Network management technologies include UCS Manager, Cisco Prime Data Center Network Manager, and Cisco UCS Director.
