Implementing and Troubleshooting the Cisco Cloud Infrastructure v1.1 (CLDINF)

Implementing and Troubleshooting the Cisco Cloud Infrastructure v1.1 (CLDINF)


Duration: 5 days

The Implementing and Troubleshooting the Cisco Cloud Infrastructure (CLDINF) v1.1 course helps you prepare for the Cisco CCNP Data Center certification and for professional-level cloud operational roles. In this course, you’ll learn the professional-level skills, technologies, and best practices needed to deploy and troubleshoot physical and virtual cloud infrastructure components, including computing infrastructure, cloud storage infrastructure and storage access, and cloud network infrastructure and connectivity. You’ll gain hands-on experience implementing various Cisco® cloud and data center infrastructure technologies such as Cisco UCS®, Cisco UCS Director, Cisco MDS switches, Cisco Nexus® switches, Cisco Cloud Services Router, ESXi hosts, VMs, vMotion, virtual extensible LANS (VXLANs), and more.

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 the major components of the Cloud infrastructure
  • Implement and troubleshoot compute components in the Cloud
  • Implement and troubleshoot storage components in the Cloud
  • Implement and troubleshoot network components in the Cloud
  • Troubleshoot Cloud environments that consist of multiple components
