Candidates entering the early round of their CCIE Data Center lab preparation must master various technologies and protocols before beginning to work on full-scale CCIE lab scenarios. Throughout the first phase of lab preparation, protocol- and technology-focused lab scenarios must be mastered to build sufficient understanding. The 5-Day CCIE Data Center Lab Preparation Bootcamp will help you achieve that goal.
Each pair of students will share a rack of Nexus 7000, Nexus 5000 and MDS lab hardware! The student racks are interconnected to form a larger topology, in which students will work together to create large Data Center networks.
This course is PACKED full of information, and classes are lengthy (10 to 12 hours per day!). The course is limited to 8 students to ensure each student has sufficient access to hardware and can receive one-on-one interaction with our Data Center instructor.

A few months ago I started preparing for the CCIE Data Center lab. I had all of the equipment needed for my lab at work (1x N7K, 2x N5K,1x N2K,1x UCS,2x MDS, 1x NetApp storage). I used iPexpert's CCIE Data Center Workbooks to learn all of the topics on the CCIE DC blueprint. A few months later I was ready, I knew how to configure and troubleshoot each topic from the blueprint. I did the lab exam and failed, I did not understood why I failed, I did all the tasks and everything was working. I wanted to schedule my next lab exam, but I did not know what to do different in order to pass, so I registered for iPexpert's CCIE DC bootcamp in RTP and schedule my lab exam for 2 days after bootcamp. There were 2 instructors who co-taught the class (Terry and Laurent). Terry explained and taught the features he was very strong on (OTV,FP,VPC..) and explained why we need it, how it's works and how to configure. It was very helpful to fill the gaps at the class. Laurent has a very deep understanding of real-world datacenters and storage networking. I realized that I failed my first attempt because of simple tasks that I did not pay enough attention to and realize what was exactly required. So thanks to Terry and Laurent at iPexpert, I have passed my CCIE DC few days ago!
I would like to thank iPexpert and their excellent boot camp for helping me pass my CCIE DC lab. I had previously studied with a “different vendor” and had failed in two previous attempts at the lab. The iPexpert boot camp provided invaluable knowledge and strategy critical to passing the lab. The combined instruction from Terry and Laurent gave two different perspectives to the exam but the tandem teaching was exactly what I needed to help get me the extra knowledge needed to pass the lab.
