Therefore, there are various ways in which a business can own apart or the entire data, based on its need. This course, therefore initially explains the infrastructural needs of a datacentre.  It discusses the best practices that need to be considered while constructing a data centre structure. You will learn about the technical requirements and network topology of a data centre. This short-term course is designed for IT architects who design and integrate solutions in multi-site, large enterprise, virtualised environments.  Successful candidates possess a deep understanding of data centre design principles and methodologies as well as core components and their relation to storage and networking
