Following up on my DCNI-2 training post from a week or so back, I found myself in Cisco DCNI-1 training. With two training classes so close to each other I took the opportunity last week to take and pass the DCNI-2 exam (642-974). I figured that I should take that exam while everything was still fresh in my mind, and feared that the act of focusing on the content of the DCNI-1 course would have made me forget everything.
This week I have been kept busy attending a Webex-based online delivery of Cisco’s Data Center Network Infrastructure 2 (DCNI-2) course. This course is basically all about the Nexus 7000 and 5000 platforms, the operating system (NXOS) and all the fun you can have with it. It has also turned up a few interesting side discussions, some of which I’ll share in this post.
I thought it might be worthwhile though to talk a little bit about the delivery of the online course, the materials, the scope of the course, and whether or not it’s any good. I’ve not taken a five day Cisco course online before, so this is an interesting experiment for me.
