CCIE Data Center Bootcamp

CCIE Data Center Bootcamp

This CCIE Data Center Bootcamp offers students the opportunity to get hands-on implementation experience with cutting-edge real-world data center hardware platforms. Our exclusive live bootcamps are specifically designed to provide you with the knowledge you need to hone your skills and help you pass your CCIE Data Center Lab Exam the first time!

The target audience for this course expands beyond CCIE Data Center candidates to include any network engineer who wants to learn how Cisco’s Nexus NX-OS and ACI based platforms work for both LAN and SAN Switching, in addition to Cisco’s Unified Computing System (UCS) through live, hands-on configuration.

Our Bootcamp students share their stories...

“INE’s tutors have always been an inspiration to me. The level of detail covered in DC track by Brian McGahan was just terrific. SAN was the Achilles heal for me and the CCIE DC materials from INE helped me to overcome the fear over SAN and eventually get me to successfully pass my exam. INE has helped me to attain my second CCIE and the rack rentals from INE helped me to a great extent to get the necessary hands-on practice. The rack rental infrastructure and the support was amazing. I would definitely recommend INE for anyone who is on the path to CCIE.”
Sudharshan S/CCIE #42393
“I work for a Cisco gold partner and I engage in a lot of data center related projects for a lot of our customers in Lagos, Nigeria. For this reason, I decided to reinforce my understanding of Cisco data center technologies – especially on the UCS and storage networking end. The INE CCIE DC bootcamp was a very good option for me because I have used some of their self-paced learning training material and the materials have been very fascinating. I have been to a couple of training sessions over the years, but the INE CCIE DC bootcamp training stands out. I loved everything about the class delivery. From the ambience to the breakfast and lunch served throughout the class. The training also gave me the opportunity to network with some other networking veterans. The big value proposition I got from this class is Brian McGahan’s class delivery. Brian is a very good instructor who has an expert mastery of all the DC related technologies. He put a lot of energy into the class to make sure all of the CCIE DC blueprint objectives were covered. I recommend INE.'”
