This course combines DCIS and DCOS into a five-day course. You will be provided with end-to-end coverage of the mission critical infrastructure systems that support typical data centers and environments with high availability requirements. You will learn about the main components that comprise the data center build, highlighting benefits of each, while allowing for the most appropriate system and component selection.

You will learn how to streamline processes, increase efficiency and productivity while maintaining high availability. The core concepts are based on demonstrated principles, which are optimized from lessons learned from data center front-runners such as consultants, managed service providers, and data center owners across varied industries.
