    Default CCIE Data Center track

    Looks like it's official..anyone going down this road? I'm too far in to R&S to turn back, but this may be my next stop if rack rentals are offered with the Nexus gear...which is a big "IF". I currently work with about 85% of the lab equipment on the data center track, so it's fairly tempting..

    If only I worked with Nexus

    I've this is suppose to replace the CCIE: Storage but after looking at them they seem to cover different topics, so I don't think that is true.

    Data Center Track
    • Expert knowledge in the implementation and troubleshooting of data center technologies.
    • Skilled with operating systems, virtualization, network services for cloud enablement, and security.
    • Core IP routing not required, but must demonstrate in-depth understanding
    Storage Networking Track
    • Expert knowledge in the implementation and troubleshooting of storage area networks
    • Skilled with LANs, MANs and WANs over Fibre Channel, iSCSI, FCIP and FICON
    • Core IP routing not required, but must demonstrate in-depth understanding of Layer 2 and 3 network infrastructure

    I'll be looking into it after the R&S. A significant bit of the work I do is with Unified Fabric technologies.

    Hey ColbyG, after I complete R&S I'll work on this one with you.

    Looks fun but probably one of the most expensive tracks.. even with used equipment.

    INE is also in the process of creating CCIE Data Center material, as well as material for the Wireless track
    Can't wait!

    Glad to see some interest. I'd love to tackle this one but the more I think about it the more I'm not sure if I'd be able to. I have plenty of access/hands on the entire nexus line, but it's all production..no time/ability to lab anything really. If rack rentals open up I'd imagine they'll be incredibly costly. But......this cert will surely be in demand...hell, it already is!

    Definitely a lot of good info to know in this track. It will be hard to study for though which will keep the numbers down.
    An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made.
