CCNP Data Center

CCNP Data Center Certification & Training Institute Mumbai

The most reliable CCNP Data Center Training institute in India, Octa Networks is providing CCNP Data Center Training Boot camps in Mumbai INDIA. Octa Networks has become a brand synonymous with the success in achieving desired CISCO certifications over the last 6-7 years.

CCNP Data Center training program from Cisco is aimed at catering to various technological needs and demands of the individuals and the industry. CCNP Data Center certification program focuses on empowering qualified and certified network engineers who are responsible for the forData Center infrastructure including network, compute, storage network, automation, and security.

On 24th Feb 2020, CISCO is REBOOTING the Certification program by launching CCNP Data Center Certification which will replace the existing CCNP Data Center program. Current CCNP examinations can be availed till 23rd Feb 2020. Newly revamped CCNP program takes effect from 24th Feb 2020.

Current CCNP Data Center program had the following examinations:

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

One of the main objectives of CCNP revamp is to move away from the ‘One Size Fits All’ approach to a modular approach wherein to achieve new CCNP certification in any track, 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 on the specific track. Besides the CCNP Data Center core exam also acts as qualifying criteria for attempting the CCIE Data Center lab exam in the particular track.

CCNA is no longer a qualifying criterion for attempting CCNPData Center. Candidates can straight away appear for CCNP Data Centerexaminations 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.

Upon completion of this course, candidates will have the skills and knowledge to:

  • As a CCNP (Cisco Certified Network Professional), you can position yourself as a technical leader with advanced skillsets and knowledge in the specific technology domain as per your interest and job role.
  • With the CCNP Data Center certification, you get to choose technical expertise with knowledge of Data Center infrastructure including network compute, storage network, automation and security. Even concentration exams validate emerging and industry-specific topics such as design, troubleshooting, application-centric infrastructure, storage, and automation which can add tremendous value to your skillsets.
  • New age technological needs of networking automation and network programmability is part of the CCNPData Center certification.
  • Incremental recognition is an attractive feature of CCNPData Center certification revamps. You need to clear the core exam and one of the concentration exams of your choice. Passing core exam (DCCOR 300-601) entitles you to Cisco certified specialist – Data Center Core certification. It means, after clearing the core exam and one of the concentration exams, you get CCNP Data Center and two specialist certifications.

 


Frequently Asked Question

You need to pass one core exam and one of the concentration exam from the options available in the same certification track to achieve your CCNPData Center certificate.

Yes. The same technology core exam 300-601 (DCCOR) will serve as the core examfor the CCNPData Center and CCIE Data Centercertification in the respective technology track.

 

In the revamped structure, if you pass core exam and one concentration exam in the same technology track, you can achieve your CCNP certification. CCNP has five tracks as of now (Enterprise, Data Center, Service Provider, Security and Collaboration). Each track has one specific core exam and a number of concentration exam choices. CCNP Security has 6 concentration exam options. CCNP Collaboration has 4 concentration exam choices. CCNP Enterprise has 6 concentration exam options. CCNP Data Center has 5 concentration exam options. CCNP Service Provider has 3 concentration exam options.
Once you clear the technology core exam, you can clear the CCNP exam within 3 years of passing the qualifying technology core exam to get the CCNP certificate.
Having CCNA certificate is not necessary before appearing for the CCNP technology core exam and or the concentration exam. You can directly appear for technology core exam or any concentration exam provided necessary concepts and knowledge of the exam topics are understood clearly.

All the current certificates will be valid for the full three years from the date of certification. If you achieveCCNP Data Centercertification before 23rd Feb 2020, you will get the fivenew corresponding certificates which will have the same validity as that of your original certificate. You will get new CCNP Data Center certificate and four more certificates. certificates are:

·Cisco Certified Specialist –Data Center Core
·Cisco Certified Specialist – Data Center Design
·Cisco Certified Specialist –Data CenterOperations
·Cisco Certified Specialist – Data CenterACI implementation

If your CCNP Data Centeris incomplete on or before 23rd Feb 2020, following are the migration scenarios. Current CCNP Data Center certification consists of five exams DCII (300-165), DCUCI (300-175), DCVAI (300-170), DCID (300-160) and DCIT (300-180).
If you have cleared any one of the three current examinationsDCVAI (300-170), DCID (300-160) and DCIT (300-180)only, then you need to clear new Core exam (300-601 DCCOR) to get the new CCNP Data Center certificate and corresponding Cisco Specialist Certification. If you have cleared either DCII (300-165) or DCUCI (300-175) only, then you will have to clear DCCOR (300-601) core exam and one of the concentration exam to receive new CCNP Data Center certificate and the corresponding Cisco Specialist Certificate.
If you have cleared DCII (300-165) and DCUCI (300-175) only, then you will receive Cisco Certified Specialist – Data Center Core. You will need to clear any one of the concentration examinations to receive the new CCNP Data Center certificate.
                If you have clearedboth DCII (300-165) and DCUCI (300-175) and any one of the DCVAI (300-170), DCID (300-160) and DCIT (300-180), you will receive new CCNP Data Center certificate and 2 more specialist certificates one of which is Cisco Certified Specialist – Data Center Core and the other one can be either Cisco Specialist Certificate – Data Center Design or Data Center Operations or Data Center ACI Implementation.

For every exam cleared before 23rd Feb 2020, you will receive corresponding Cisco Certified Specialist certification. Following are the details:
