Understanding Cisco Cloud Networking Architecture

This path is meant to enhance the knowledge base of any learner who works with cloud technologies, or wishes to begin understanding cloud deployments


Expected Duration
129 minutes

Clouds require physical network resources that can move and store information. To maximize resources you need to take advantage of unified communications and network virtualization. This courses introduces you to a typical Datacenter Network Architecture that takes advantage of unified communications and the Nexus line of Cisco products. It will also explore the concepts or virtual networking. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Cisco exam Understanding Cisco Cloud Fundamentals exam (210-451 CLDFND). This exam counts toward the CCNA Cloud certification.
