What is Cisco UCS Training about?

This five day training event is intended for individuals who are interested in learning the fundamentals of supporting UC applications in a UCS virtualized environment. The course will cover both the Unified Computing System B Series servers and the stand alone C Series servers. The four main areas of study will be system preparation (B series and C series), ESXi deployment, Unified Communications applications in ESXi, and the Nexus 1000v virtual Ethernet switch. While this course is written with Unified Communications as its focus, anyone with a desire to learn the fundamentals of these topics would benefit from this course.

What are the objectives of Cisco UCS Training ?

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

Install Unified Communications applications on the Cisco UCS Servers listed below running VMware ESXi based on Guidelines specified on the Cisco UC on UCS DocWiki site.

  • B-Series Servers managed by UCS Manager using SAN boot and SAN storage. 
  • C-Series standalone Servers using local hard drive boot , storage on local drive and storage on SAN using iSCSI. 
  • Demonstrate VMware functions and features that complement the UC installation (e.g., vMotion) 
  • Install and configure the Cisco Nexus 1000V Switch to support the UC applications
