Prerequisites

Students considered for this training should have attended the following classes or obtained an equivalent level of knowledge:

The learner is expected to have the following skills and knowledge before attending this course:

  • 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

Course Objectives

The goal of the course is to enable engineers to choose the components and design a scalable, reliable, and intelligent data center.

Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:

  • Describe Layer 2 switching and Layer 3 forwarding in a data center, including cabling and rack design for the access, aggregation, and core layers.
  • Design vPC, Cisco FabricPath, OTV, and LISP in customer scenarios and describe management options in the LAN.
  • Describe hardware virtualization and FEX technologies, compare the Cisco Nexus 1000v with VMFEX 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.
  • Describe storage and RAID options, describe the Fibre Channel concept and architecture, and design Fibre Channel and FCoE networks, along with management options.
  • Describe the UCS C-Series, M-Series, and B-Series servers, with connectivity and adapter options. For the UCS B-Series deployment, you will be able to describe the blade chassis, I/O modules, and fabric interconnects, with a focus on south- and northbound connectivity and oversubscription. Compare the EHV and NPV network operations modes. Explain and distinguish among 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 templates.
