Cisco has announced the imminent retirement of their CCIE Storage Networking Certification. This certification has a written exam (code: 350-040) as well as a lab component.
While the announcement was effective Feb 5, 2013, candidates may continue to take the written exam through April 30, 2013. As from May 1, 2013, this exam will not be offered. The last date to test for the lab exam is June 30, 2013. If, as of July 1, 2013, a candidate has passed the written test but not the lab exam, they should consider the CCIE Data Center certification or a Data Center Specialist certification.
