The book explores concepts, features, and designs to provide an adequate understanding about cloud environments and their particular infrastructure requirements. It also follows a logical order and practical approach, both designed to offer the reader a gradual and rich experience. At first sight, both CCNA Cloud and CCNA Data Center certifications may appear to share a considerable number of topics related to Cisco Data Center portfolio.

The book is broken up into 4 sections. The first section starts with foundational topics that level set the reader on key concepts and background necessary to provide context on why cloud is important to transform into an agile, flexible, and operationally efficient business. Section 2 provides an overview of the Cisco technology and software suites relevant to the exam.  Section 3 delves into Cloud administration and operations concepts like deploying virtual machines and application containers, managing role based access control, services catalogs, and reporting and chargeback systems. Section 4 closes out the book by exploring cloud monitoring, capacity planning, and remediation methodologies.
