What is Designing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure [v6.0] Training about?

This 5 Day course focuses on data center design based on Cisco solutions. The course includes theoretical content, as well as design-oriented case studies that are in the form of testlets. The course is designed to help students prepare for Cisco CCNP¬ģ Data Center certification and for professional-level data center roles. The course covers designing data centers with Cisco components and technologies. It covers network designs with virtualization, Layer 2 and Layer 3 technologies and routing protocols, and data center interconnect design options. Also covered are device virtualization technologies such as virtual data centers and network function virtualization with virtual appliances, including virtual switches, virtual routers, and virtual firewalls. Storage and SAN design is covered, with explanation of Fibre Channel networks and Cisco Unified Fabric. Design practices for the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) solution based on Cisco UCS BSeries and C-Series servers and Cisco UCS Manager are covered. Network management technologies include UCS Manager, Cisco Prime Data Center Network Manager, and Cisco UCS Director.

What are the objectives of Designing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure [v6.0] Training ?

Upon successful completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • 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 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
  • 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 southbound 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
