PyNet Labs has designed a combination of two courses i.e. Cisco Nexus and Cisco ACI Training. This training will take you through deploying, configuring and managing Cisco Nexus Switches using NX-OS and in ACI mode both. The significant training outcomes of the Nexus + ACI training are,
  • Candidates will have skills to configure and manage Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches in NX-OS and ACI mode,
  • Skills to connect the Cisco ACI fabric to external networks and services,
  • Fundamental understanding of Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) integration.
  • Gaining hands-on practice on implementing key capabilities such as fabric discovery, policies, connectivity, VMM integration, and more.
The instructor-led DCACI training with PyNet Labs comes with additional lab accessibility that helps candidates study for the DCACI exam step-by-step. The training curriculum is aligned with Cisco's Certification modules and follows Cisco's DCACI training program structure. Our comprehensive training ensures both theoretical as well as practical knowledge relevant to the world of networking technologies.

Why we are doing a combo of Cisco Nexus + DC ACI Training? Why not just Cisco DC-ACI Course?

We have spoken to 1000s of students to this date and found most of them didn't have any idea about how Nexus switches are used in NX-OS mode. They were jumping directly into learning about how to run Cisco Nexus switches in ACI mode. Without the knowledge and skills to architect, implement, and manage Cisco Nexus switches in data center environments, it will be tough for professionals to proceed with Cisco DCACI training.

The reason behind this is knowledge of Nexus' platforms, architecture, software, management, and features aren't a part of the Cisco DCACI course curriculum.

So we have created a combination of training where we take Nexus from scratch and then jump to ACI Mode. This way we cover both the DCINX9k course and the DCACI course by Cisco one after another and improve your learning experience.
