Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) is one of the industry-leading software-defined networking (SDN) solutions for the Data Center. In INE’s Implementing ACI Bootcamp, you will learn both the theory and practice of running Cisco’s Nexus 9000 series switches in ACI-mode, from Day-0 initialization of the fabric to Day-1 operations. This Bootcamp takes a hands-on approach to learning. The vast majority of the course utilizes the Application Centric Infrastructure Controller (APIC) GUI and CLI interfaces for live configuration, verification, and troubleshooting examples. This Bootcamp applies to CCNP and CCIE Data Center candidates and the everyday network engineer who wants to add Cisco ACI knowledge to their skillset.
