CCIE Data Center v2.0 (Unified Exam Topics)

The Cisco CCIE Data Center Written Exam (400-151) verison 2.0 is a two-hour test with 90-110 questions that validate professionals who have the expertise to design, implement, diagnose, and troubleshoot complex Data Center technologies. Understands the requirements of Data Centers, how different components in the Data Center interoperate, and ability to translate it into the device configurations. The exam is closed book and no outside reference materials are allowed.
The Cisco CCIE Data Center Lab Exam verison 2.0 is an eight-hour, hands-on exam which requires a candidate to configure, diagnose, and troubleshoot a series of complex Data Center scenarios for a given specification. Knowledge of troubleshooting is an important skill and candidates are expected to diagnose and solve issues as part of the CCIE lab exam.
