Cisco announces the launch of a new set of Data Centre Certifications

12 December 2012

In the fast moving world of information technology, it is important to be up-to-date with technological changes. Cisco systems has released a new certification in order to keep up with the modern IT worker, focusing on data centres. The CCIE data centre qualification was launched in September and comes with a whole host of new training courses.

With the cloud and data centres becoming more and more widely used by the minute, the role of a data networking administrator is increasingly difficult and important. The certification will cover training in competence in network and server virtualization and storage and IP networking convergence. Candidates must pass 2 exams in order to achieve the qualification which is valid for 3 years.

Cisco’s decision to overhaul their data centre certification comes from an increase in the number of problems and difficulties that a data centre administrator could face. The new certification trains IT workers in a virtual troubleshooting environment where they face problems with storage and network connectivity, installation, memory, adapter connectivity and booting issues, drivers, BIOS and deploying a virtualized environment.

Cisco have also tried to place more emphasis on security problems with this certification. Jeanne Beliveau-Dunn, vice-president of Cisco explains why this is the case, “I will tell you that in all of the career tracks that we’re watching, security and data center continue to be the top two trends that our customers are asking for across the board.”

If you’re looking to train yourself or one of your employees in this or any other Cisco certifications, take a look at our Cisco routing and switching training courses to find the course that suits your needs.
