    This should be covered in the JNCDS-DC certification(JNO-1301).

    Hello Marcus,

    Thanks a lot for the feedback.

    Unfortunately it is not covered in the JNCDS-DC certification(JNO-1301). 

    This is the course structure of JNCDS:
    • Data Center Design Considerations
    • Ethernet Fabric Architectures
    • IP Fabric Architecture
    • Data Center Interconnect
    • Data Center Security
    • Virtualization in the Data Center
    • Traffic Prioritization in the Data Center
    • High Availability in the Data Center
    However, a more detailed DCI course would look like this:

    •    Describe power and cooling infrastructure in the data center
    •    Understand the cost drivers when building a data center
    •    Understand the primary power problems in the data center and how to address them
    •    Describe the different UPS topologies and how a UPS works
    •    Understand how power is distributed in the data center
    •    Calculate how much power is required in the data center
    •    Develop a plan for implementing data center physical security
    •    Understand the refrigeration cycle and how cooling is implemented in the data center
    •    Understand the importance of air distribution and its impact on cooling
    •    Develop a plan for improving cooling efficiency in the data center

    Can you check the Data Center track?

    Remember that Juniper is a networking company so the focus of these certifications is running the network and controls in the data center.  In the Design certification series there is some high level discussions on some the the data center infrastructure that one should be aware of.

    But it sounds like you are looking to go deep on the topic.  So maybe the Schneider Electric programs would be more what you are looking for.
