Whether you’ve just started your CCIE training journey, or are already several months along, an INE bootcamp can help get you to where you need to be before taking the CCIE Written or lab exam. This blogpost is for anyone who may be interested in attending a CCIE Security bootcamp but is hesitant to dive in. Keep reading to find out what a bootcamp is and what you should expect when attending a CCIE Security Bootcamp with INE.

What is a Bootcamp?
Bootcamps are intensive, live classes that typically last from 5-7 days. Bootcamps allow you to dive further into your study path in a small classroom environment with an in-person, expert INE instructor leading the way. Each bootcamp class will cover a specific list of topics tailored to the Cisco track and certification level you are studying. Our instructors will customize the training to focus on certain topics and technologies that best meet the individual requests of the students in your bootcamp.

What to expect: Instructor’s Point of View
In this short video, our CCIE Security instructor, Rohit Pardasani, explains what topics he typically covers in a bootcamp and what the environment is like.

 

 

 
What to Expect: Students Point of View

See what former students are saying about this bootcamp:

Rohit was extremely knowledgeable, perhaps the most knowledgeable Cisco instructor I’ve had in an ILT. The class was outstanding and I would highly recommend – I’d say it ranks in the top 5 ILT classes I’ve ever taken. Come to the bootcamp prepared, the more you know the more you’ll learn.– Thomas Maier

Training with Rohit was a really fun experience, he really knows his stuff. He used visual aids to illustrate technical topics and was always ready to assist with questions we had. I could not ask for a better proctor.-Howard Phillip

Maybe your company has decided to move to the Cloud and you need to know what Azure is and how to create resources, or maybe you want to learn Azure so you can add it to your resume.  Either way, this short course will explain what Azure is, the difference between PaaS and IaaS, and how to create resources in Azure.

 


Why You Should Watch

This simple step-by-step class will teach you the basics of Cloud services and provide a solid foundation of knowledge to build on. Given the amount of services available on Azure, it would be impossible to learn each one with just one class, so this course covers the basics of storage, networking, virtual machines, SQL databases, and web apps. Through the discussion of these 5 topics, we can effectively demonstrate how Azure works and how to set up different services in Azure.


What You’ll learn

After viewing Overview of Microsoft Azure, you will have a basic understanding of Azure and its abilities, and be better prepared for the Azure exams.

Virtualization is a key skillset for any Linux Administrator or Engineer. Not all workloads are useful in the cloud, and companies are quickly realizing this in terms of increasing cloud bills. You can bring those workloads in house, but what about licensing? KVM is a favorite of home labs because of the low cost of entry (free). KVM is also a favorite of shops that know how powerful open source is. Gain a greater understanding of how any virtualization platform works by utilizing common linux tools to manage and orchestrate your virtual machines. KVM forms the basis for upstream virtualization projects like oVirt and RHEV as well. Learn how to setup a virtualized environment only armed with an install usb from your favorite linux distribution.

 

Any workload can be run on a KVM virtual machine platform. Docker/Kubernetes? No problem. Databases, front end web services, workloads requiring dedicated hardware such as GPU’s or HBA’s, KVM can run any of these workloads with near bare metal performance.


What You’ll Learn:

  • Setting up the hypervisor machine
  • Installing your first virtual machine
  • managing network storage memory and cpu resources
  • Virtual machine snapshots
    Virtual machine cloning
