DCUCD-DCDCUCv50 DCUCD - Designing Cisco Data Center Unified Computing v5.0

Network Training Course Description:
In this course, you will learn how to choose and design scalable, reliable, and intelligent data center unified computing and virtualization solutions. These solutions are based on the Cisco data center product portfolio with a Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) as a centerpiece integrated with contemporary server virtualization solutions, such as VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V R2, and Citrix for Cisco Virtualization Experience Infrastructure [VXI], and operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows and Linux. You'll also learn how to evaluate existing data center computing solutions, determine the requirements, and design Cisco data center unified computing and virtualization solutions.
