The Configuring ACI in the Cisco Nexus Data Center course has been designed to provide you with the advanced knowledge and skill sets required to successfully deploy, maintain and troubleshoot a Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI) in a data center environment. You will learn the fundamental concepts that Cisco ACI and its operational elements are built on exploring in detail the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches and the Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC).

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
