Configuring Cisco Nexus Data Center (CCNDC)

Configuring Cisco Nexus Data Center (CCNDC) Certification Training Course Overview

Enroll for the 5-days Configuring Cisco Nexus Data Center (CCNDC) training and certification course from Koenig solutions accredited by Cisco.

This Configuring the Cisco Nexus Data Center(CCNDC) training course focuses on designing and configuring a data center network to support a virtual computing environment (VCE). Using the Cisco Nexus and MDS family of products, you will construct a highly available and modular network infrastructure that can be used to provide virtualized cloud-based services. You will learn about configuring the Cisco Nexus 7000 and 5000 Series Switches as well as the Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders into a scalable data center network. You will learn how to connect VMware vSphere ESX-based virtual machines to the data center infrastructure. Topics covered include the configuration of a data center unified fabric using both Fibre Channel and Fibre Channel over Ethernet as well as the configuration of VMware virtual switching to a Cisco Nexus based data center network. In addition, the lecture and labs will cover how to configure both VMware VMotion and Storage VMotion in the data center environment. You will also learn how to scale the data center Layer 2 environment using Cisco FabricPath and Overlay Transport Virtualization (OTV).

Target Audience
