Automating the Cisco Enterprise Cloud v1.1 (CLDAUT)


Duration: 5 days

The Automating the Cisco Enterprise Cloud (CLDAUT) v1.1 course helps you prepare for the Cisco CCNP Cloud certification and for professional-level cloud operational roles. In this course, you’ll learn the skills, technologies, and best practices needed to automate and manage private and hybrid cloud infrastructure for infrastructure as a service (IaaS), including devices, policies, virtual device contexts (VDCs), IaaS tenants, workflows, IaaS catalog, containers, and application provisioning. You’ll gain hands-on experience using various Cisco cloud and data center infrastructure technologies such as Cisco ONE Enterprise Cloud Suite, Cisco UCS Director, Cisco Prime® Service Catalog, and Cisco Virtual Application Container Services (VACS).

IT practitioners who have Cisco CCNP Cloud training and certification have validated professional-level, hands-on skills in Cisco technologies and industry best practices needed for in-demand job roles.


Upon completion of this course, you will be able to: 

  • Describe key architectural elements to support private cloud IaaS using Cisco data center components
  • Describe how to manage a private IaaS service offering with Cisco Prime Service Catalog
  • Automate network services in a private IaaS cloud
  • Describe lifecycle management and application provisioning in the cloud
  • Describe how to manage workloads in a hybrid cloud
