Hello Cloud and ACI, goodbye ACE and WAAS. That’s right, last week Cisco announced the version 2.0 of the CCIE Data Center. The new version takes effect July 25, 2016.
I will list the hardware and new topics for this Lab Exam, but please keep in mind that the exam format has also changed. There is now a 1 hour diagnostic section with no device access, and a 7 hour configuration and troubleshooting section where you will have plenty of hardware and software to fiddle with. You need to hit a minimum cut score in BOTH of these sections in order to pass.
