CCNP Data Center Course overview

Octa Networks, India’s number one and best Cisco training center located in Mumbai, offers onsite and online CCNP Data Center training to candidates worldwide. We are one of the pioneers in India providing high-end quality CCNP Data Center Training and Boot camps in our 24x7 physical lab setup. Our CCNP Data Center Racks are fully equipped with physical devices as per latest Cisco CCNP Data Center exam blueprints.

CCNP Data Center Certification is a professional level certification for the student looking to enhance their skills and work independently on complex Data Center solutions. After completion of CCNP Data Center Training, the candidate will have the ability to plan, implement, verify and troubleshoot Data Center networks. CCNP aspirants work collaboratively and closely with Subject Matter Experts for security, voice, wireless, and video domain.

Our modular CCNP Data Center training programs aimed at catering to various technological needs and demands of the individuals and the industry. We have successfully helped a large number of students to achieve their Cisco certification goals in the last 8 years. Octa Networks means guaranteed technical training which ultimately leads to Cisco certifications.

On 24th Feb 2020, Cisco refreshed the certification program by launching new CCNP Data Center Certification which will replace the existing CCNP Data Center program. Expired CCNP Data Center examinations were allowed to be availed till 23rd Feb 2020. Newly revamped CCNP Data Center program takes effect from 24th Feb 2020.

Expired CCNP Data Center program had the following examinations:

  • 300-175 - Implementing Cisco Data Center Unified Computing (DCUCI)
  • 300-165 - Implementing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCII)
  • 300-170 - Implementing Cisco Data Center Virtualization and Automation (DCVAI)
  • 300-160 - Designing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCID)
  • 300-180 - Troubleshooting Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCIT)

One of the main objectives of CCNP DC revamp is to move away from the ‘One Size Fits All’ approach to a modular approach wherein to achieve new CCNP Data Center certification, the candidate will not have to pass more than 2 exams. Any additional specializations are most welcome but the candidate needs to pass a core exam and one of the concentration exam options available in the respective track. Besides the CCNP Data Center, core exam also acts as qualifying criteria for attempting the CCIE Data Center lab exam.

CCNA is no longer a qualifying criterion for attempting CCNP Data Center. Candidates can straight away appear for CCNP Data Center examinations provided they have the necessary knowledge and grasp of the practical application of the know-how.

To earn CCNP Data Center certification, candidates need to pass core exam which covers core enterprise technology and one concentration exam of his/her choice based on his/her technical area of focus or job role requirement.

CCNP Data Center Core exam:

  • 350-601 - Implementing and Operating Cisco Data Center Core Technologies (DCCOR)

CCNP Data Center Concentration exam:

  • 300-610 - Designing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCID)
  • 300-615 - Troubleshooting Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCIT)
  • 300-620 - Configuring Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches in ACI Mode (DACA9K)
  • 300-625 - Configuring Cisco MDS 9000 Series Switches (DCMDS)
  • 300-635 - Implementing Automation for Cisco Data Center Solutions (DCAUI)

In a nutshell, Cisco is rebooting the CCNP Data Center course to cover the most relevant technologies and business needs by designing a qualifying core exam which focuses on your knowledge of Data Center infrastructure including network compute, storage network, automation and security. Concentration exams focus on emerging and industry-specific topics such as design, troubleshooting, application-centric infrastructure, storage, and automation.

Octa Networks is providing CCNP Enterprise Bootcamps and focused training facilities across India and abroad. We are proud of our track record of guiding and coaching our students to achieve their CCNP certifications.
