Implementing DevOps Solutions and Practices using Cisco Platforms (DevOps) v1.0

Duration : 5 Days (40 Hours)

Implementing DevOps Solutions and Practices using Cisco Platforms (DevOps) v1.0 Course Overview:

The Implementing DevOps Solutions and Practices using Cisco Platforms (DEVOPS) v1.0 course focuses on teaching individuals the principles and techniques of automating application deployment, configuring automation, improving management processes, and enhancing scalability of cloud microservices and infrastructure using Cisco platforms.

Throughout the course, you will gain knowledge and skills related to automating application deployment, enabling automated configuration, and improving management processes on Cisco platforms. This includes understanding the concepts and tools used in DevOps practices and how they can be applied to Cisco platforms.

The course also covers the integration of Docker and Kubernetes, two popular containerization technologies, to create advanced capabilities and flexibility in application deployment. You will learn how to leverage containerization to build and deploy applications in a scalable and efficient manner.

By completing the Implementing DevOps Solutions and Practices using Cisco Platforms (DEVOPS) course and successfully passing the associated 300-910 certification exam, you will earn the Implementing DevOps Solutions and Practices using Cisco Platforms (DEVOPS) certification. This certification validates your knowledge and skills in implementing DevOps practices using Cisco platforms.

Additionally, the course awards you 40 Continuing Education (CE) credits, which contribute to your recertification requirements. Continuing Education credits help you maintain your certifications by demonstrating your commitment to ongoing professional development.

In summary, this course equips you with the necessary skills and knowledge to automate application deployment, configure automation, improve management processes, and enhance scalability using Cisco platforms. It also prepares you for the certification exam and provides Continuing Education credits for recertification.
