Resources for Learning Cisco ACI

One question I always get asked is how can people learn more about Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure. In this blog I'm going to list some of the best resources to learn about and get your hands on ACI. To begin with, let's talk about labs. There are several labs available currently for partners on Cisco dCloud that will let you play with the Cisco APIC, set up ACI, and even integrate it with other third party solutions. Soon customer facing labs will be available.


There's currently one book out with more on the way. You can get the troubleshooting book available now on Github for free. The second one which concentrates more on operations will be available in a few weeks.
