What you’ll learn

The Data Center Intersight Essentials learning path is Cisco’s first educational program dedicated to Cisco Intersight. This path encompasses Cisco Intersight Infrastructure services, enabling you to configure and monitor computing, storage, networking, and cloud resources effectively. Through this learning path, you’ll familiarize yourself with various Cisco Intersight services, including Cisco Intersight Workload Optimizer (IWO), which aids in determining the most cost-effective cloud environment for running application workloads. Additionally, you’ll gain hands-on experience with Cisco Intersight Virtualization Services (IVS), providing a centralized view of virtual machine workloads. For those interested in intent-based configuration, there are lessons on Cisco Intersight Cloud Orchestrator (ICO), as well as exploration of the Cisco Intersight API using tools like HashiCorp Terraform, Ansible, and Python. Each course within the learning path offers a comprehensive learning experience, featuring text, graphics, video lectures, lab walkthroughs, and hands-on exercises.
