    Default Please help me to make decision into data center field

    The reason why I asked the questions in CCNP level forum is I thought most people here have more experience in data center field more than CCNA forum.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Now I'm an IP engineer who work for one of the biggest telecom vendor in Asia. I support customers about design and implement IP products in the service provider network. Such as core switches and routers. BUT I HAVE SEEN ON THE INTERNET THAT DATA CENTER(+CLOUD) IS TRENDING AND IN-DEMAND FOR NOW plus my latest project I work with log server and some SAN storage. It woke me up my interesting in data center field.


    Well, these are my question I need to clear myself before I will make decision to DC field.


    1) Actually the people who take the Cisco DC cert. is system engineer/system admin in background or not?
    - I'm network engineer. If the answer is yes I concern when I find new job in DC field, it might be hard to get the job although I can pass CCNA DC because I don't have any background in system such as server, storage or VM.


    2) From zero to CCNP DC, Can I lab at home without any real equipment?
    (Due to I'm a hard-worker for self-studying. If I can't self-study by labbing like RS or SP track. My pros is useless.)

    3) Now I'm CCNA RS certified. To increase opportunity to get the DC job, should I go CCNA DC or continue CCNP RS is better?

    Thank you everyone in advance for helping me and sorry about my non-native English.
