I read lots of comments on the blogs and forums about CCDE exam changes. People think that CCDE Practical exam is going to change by July 2016.
Guys, be relax. CCDE Practical/Lab exam is not going to change , Cisco will not add any vendor specific SDN technologies into the CCDE Practical exam.
But in July 2016, Datacenter, Automation, SDN topics (Cisco call them emerging technologies) will be added to the exam.
And of course some of the questions will be about Cisco ACI as well. But of course not configuration parameters or low level details of the solution.
I expect more conceptual things which look after why things are done rather than how they are done.
- Why ACI should be used ?
- Which environment ACI makes more sense more ?
- How it can be deployed with the legacy datacenter architecture together ?
- Why companies would like to have private Cloud and the Private or Public datacenters ?
