Course Prerequisites

  • Implement data center networking (LAN and SAN)
  • Describe data center storage
  • Implement data center virtualization
  • Implement Cisco Unified Computing System
  • Implement data center automation and orchestration with the focus on Cisco ACI and UCS Director
  • Describe products in the Cisco Data Center Nexus and MDS families

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe Layer 2 switching and Layer 3 forwarding in a data center
  • Design VPC, Cisco FabricPath, OTV, and LISP in customer scenarios and identify management options in the LAN
  • Describe hardware virtualization and FEX technologies, compare the Cisco Nexus 1000v with VM-FEX designs, discuss data center security threats and Cisco Virtual Application Container Services for IaaS, and describe management and automation options for the data center infrastructure
  • Report storage and RAID options, key out the Fiber Channel concept and architecture, and design Fiber Channel and FCoE networks, along with management options
  • Describe the UCS C-Series, M-Series, and B-Series servers, with connectivity and adapter options. Compare the EHV and NPV network operation modes. Explain and differentiate between the different system integrated stack solutions and the management options for the UCS domains
  • Design the resource parameters for a UCS domain, starting with the setup and IP concepts, RBAC, and integration with authentication servers. Design the resource pools and policies used in UCS service profiles and guides
