Introduction to the Latest CCIE DC Version in 2020

Introduction to the latest Cisco CCIE DC version of 2020: since February this year, the reform of Cisco Certification has been carried out. Although it has been affected by the epidemic, it is now slowly back on track. In all directions of the new Cisco Certification, what is the content of the latest version of CCIE DC? Next, SPOTO will give you a brief introduction.

DC is actually a Data Center. Obtaining CCIE Data Center Certification can prove that you have the skills of complex Data Center solutions. Then, in order to obtain CCIE Data Center Certification, you must pass two examinations. One is the Qualification Examination covering Core Data Center Technology, that is, the implementation and operation of Cisco Core Data Center Technology – DCCOR 350-601. This examination tests candidates’ knowledge of the implementation of Core Data Center Technology, including Network, Computing, Storage Network Automation and Security.

Another is the eight-hour experimental test, which is a nightmare for candidates. It covers the whole Network Life Cycle from Design, Deployment to Operation and Optimization. CCIE Data Center (V3.0), which covers all Data Center Networks, is currently Version 3.0. From Cisco’s Official Website. This part mainly focuses on the L2 / L3 Connection of Data Center, Data Center Structure Infrastructure, Data Center Structure Connection, Data Center Computing, Data Center Storage Protocols and Functions, Data Center Security and Network Services, and Data Center Automation and Arrangement. The proportion of assessment contents of each module is relatively uniform. You can fill your own knowledge system based on these in order to pass the experimental examination more easily.

Next, let’s introduce the latest CCIE DC Version in 2020.

From the outline of the examination, there are still many contents in the written examination, such as the implementation of Data Center Switching Protocol, Spanning Tree Protocol, Port Channel Overview, Virtual Port Channel Overview, the implementation of First Hop Redundancy Protocol, Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP), Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP), IPv6 First Hop Redundancy Protocol (FHRP) Routing in Data Center, Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) V2 and Open Settlement Protocol (OSP) V3, Border Gateway Protocol, Multicast in Data Center, IP Multicast in Data Center Network, Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) and Multicast Listener Discovery (MLD), Multicast Distribution Tree and Routing Protocol, IP Multicast on Cisco Nexus Switch Implement Data Center Coverage Protocol, Cisco Coverage Transport Virtualization, Virtual Scalable LAN, Cisco ACI End Point and End Point Group (EPG), Cloud Deployment Model, Description of the Management, Maintenance and Operation of Data Center Network Infrastructure, Storage Area Network (SAN) Design Options, FCoE Topology Options, Cisco HyperFlex Solution, Overview of Cisco and Ansible Integration, Overview of Cisco Data Center Network Manager, etc.
