Implementing DevOps Solutions and Practices Using Cisco Platforms (DEVOPS)


Course Description

The Implementing DevOps Solutions and Practices Using Cisco Platforms (DEVOPS) v1.0 course teaches you how to automate application deployment, enable automated configuration, enhance management, and improve scalability of cloud micro-services and infrastructure processes on Cisco® platforms. You will also learn how to integrate Docker and Kubernetes to create advanced capabilities and flexibility in application deployment. This course prepares you for the 300-910 Implementing DevOps Solutions and Practices Using Cisco Platforms (DEVOPS) certification exam. 

This course will help you:

  • Gain the high-demand knowledge and skills to implement automation, streamline container orchestration, and enhance scalability
  • Learn the skills to maximize the lightweight design of containers to scale more quickly and allow more responsiveness to website traffic load
  • Prepare for the 300-910 DEVOPS exam

After you pass 300-910 DEVOPS, you earn the Cisco Certified DevNet Specialist - DevOps certification, and you satisfy the concentration exam requirement for the CCNP® Collaboration and Cisco Certified DevNet Professional certifications.

This course prepares you for the Cisco Certified DevNet Professional and also satisfies the concentration requirement for CCNP Collaboration.
