    Anyone who wants to obtain their CCNA Data Center certification. This includes working engineers in the Enterprise space that want to expand their knowledge of Data Center concepts and technologies. Specifically, CCNA candidates who will use this product to prepare for the two required tests needed to earn the CCNA Data Center certification. CCNP and CCIE Data Center candidates needing a first exposure to foundational knowledge will also be very interested in this product. IT managers in need of a quick understanding of Data Center concepts to better manage their engineering teams, and engineers familiar with other vendors’ platforms who wish to learn Cisco’s specific implementations of these technologies would also benefit from taking this course.


    Course Requirements

    The video course assumes that the learner has the skills to navigate the user interface of a PC running any of the Microsoft OS’s, and that the reader has completed typical high school-level math courses (mainly that the reader has been exposed to binary math). The course also assumes that the reader has used PCs connected to either a home network or a network inside a school or company, but that the reader might not understand anything about the network to which the PC was connected. It is also assumed that the reader knows how to use typical Internet applications, primarily web browsers, and email clients.
