Thank you dear students, this course is now rated among the TOP 10% Rated Courses on Udemy.com, this would not have happened without your great feedback! Thank you so much!
Today, on Udemy, there are more than 6800+ highly satisfied students, from 133 countries, learning Cisco ACI using my ACI courses.
All you need is to have CCNA Routing & Switching knowledge or equivalent experience.
What does that mean to you? It means Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI), as a Data Center solution based on Software Defined Networks (SDN), is a very hot skill/solution to learn and is gaining huge popularity day by day.
I highly recommend that you do not wait, and get ready to start learning Cisco ACI today itself, be at the forefront of the professionals mastering this skill, and continue to be an in-demand Cisco skill/solution expert.
Cisco has more than 50% of the world wide install base of Data Center Network infrastructure, and will continue to own a major market share for years to come! ACI is a major shift from traditional networking, and mastering it early means you will be exposed to better jobs, higher pay rates, and more job satisfaction through new exciting responsibilities.
The main objective of this course is to facilitate, to the learner, the ability to start learning CISCO's hottest infrastructure solution, Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI), NOW, not in so many months or years.
If you are Cisco CCNA certified, CCNP, or possess the equivalent knowledge/experience , then this course is for you! If you have not been exposed to Data Center, Cloud, Software Defined Networks, Network Function Virtualization, MPLS, and a lot more, this course will be for you as well. It will explain to you all of these terms/technologies/solutions at the level required by you to study and understand ACI.
Do not wait, this course is tailored for you, this is my promise to you.
If not satisfied, you have a 30 days money back guarantee, no questions asked (which I am confident you will not need).
Why prepare to learn ACI now? Excellent question!
1) ACI is Cisco's flagship solution for Data Center and Cloud Network Infrastructure solutions.
2) ACI is Cisco's recommended replacement of all current Cisco Data Center infrastructure install base,
3) For any client who desires a cloud ready network infrastructure, ACI is what Cisco is pushing for right now. Knowing Cisco, this will be achieved no matter what.
Learning this today, means you will be at the forefront of the pool of professionals in-demand to design, deploy, operate, and optimize this solution, hence, higher pay and better opportunities.
The question though remains, how can someone with CCNA knowledge or equivalent experience start learning such an advanced solution today?
The course fills ALL the gaps between the CCNA level knowledge and that required to start learning and understanding Cisco ACI right now. It has high level introductions for many topics in IT networking including Cloud, Software Defined Networking, Network Function Virtualization, Server Load Balancing, MPLS, Security, VxLAN(core for SDN), and Data Center solutions and technologies.
The topics covered in this course are:
- The trends in the networking domain, and IT in general that are pressing and pushing for dramatic changes in the Networking field.
- Introduction to Switching, Routing, Routing Protocols, Multi Protocol Label Switching(MPLS),
- Introduction to Data Center Architectures (both logical and physical)
- Introduction to Cloud basics, Cloud offerings, Cloud models
- Introduction to Virtualization of Servers
- Introduction to Software Defined Networks (SDN)
- Introduction to Network Function Virtualization (NFV)
- Introduction to Next Generation Firewalls (NGFWs)
- Introduction to Server Load Balancing
- Introduction to Virtual eXtensible LANs (VXLANs)
- How all the above tie together when it comes to Application Centric Infrastructure, and the future of Data Center Networks
ACI is Cisco's answer to Software Defined Networks (SDN) that is a key requirement for successful Cloud implementations. Basically, ACI is Cisco's flagship solution for any Cloud based DC infrastructure. Learning that greatly enhances you job opportunities and raises your potential pay rates.
Do not set back, Get prepared NOW!
Mastering SDN/ACI skills today is a MUST for anyone who is seeking to be/continue as a highly recognized, well paid, continuously in-demand, IT network Infrastructure professional.
Learning ACI, SDN, and NFV will secure your career into the IT network infrastructure domain now and in the future.
Another good question you may have, Do you need to stop your current IT journey or drop the books and stop studying for whatever you are studying (e.g. CCNA, NP, IE..etc) to learn this course?
Of Course NOT! All what you need is to be enlightened on what is going on, and how to tackle that promptly with deep understanding/knowledge. See for yourself why learning ACI is a major leap forward you can make to your career.
This course together with the Understanding Cisco Application Centric (ACI) Course on Udemy, will get you deeply involved (at a high level) on what a Data Center is, Routing Protocols, Wide Area Network, MPLS, Security, and Will then take you into what ACI is, its importance, and why it is re-defining the Data Center Infrastructure in the future...
Who can Join this course:
Anyone with Cisco CCNA level knowledge and/or equivalent experience at a minimum. However, the course is also valid for CCNP professionals and anyone who were not exposed to SDN, NFV, VxLAN, Cloud, and want to ramp up to these solutions/technologies to advance their knowledge/career.
