Course Content

The Cisco Data Center Unified Computing Design (DCUCD) v4.0 course enables engineers 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).

The DCUCD v4.0 describes the data center unified computing and virtualization solutions that are based on the Cisco data center product portfolio. The course explains how to evaluate existing data center computing solution, determine the requirements, and design Cisco data center unified computing and virtualization solutions.
