CCIE DC 400-151 V2.0 Written Exam Topics Breakdown

ccie dc 400-151 exam changes


CCIE DC 400-151 V2.0 went live about a month ago. There are a lot of exciting new topics that have become part of CCIE DC written exam as a result of this change. We have finally launched our brand new CCIE DC 400-151 V2.0 Exam Cert Guide. It is available within the products.

Let me call out a few specifics.

  • Cisco ACI, APIC Cluster and Nexus 9K (i.e. goodies from Insieme acquisition) have officially become front and center of Cisco’s strategic weapons for DC fabric wars and compete head to head with VMware NSX (I won’t hold my breath as to who’s going to win this contest!)
  • Cisco InterCloud Fabric, SDN and IoT (within Evolving Technologies) are added and you can expect about 10 questions on your next try!
  • Bunch of new hardware (UCS chassis, FIs, blades etc.) and Nexus 7004 and a Nexus 5K are added.
  • Cisco ACE, FCIP storage protocol, GSLB are among the drop outs.

Please refer to the table below for complete exam topics breakdown.
