Course Summary

Detailed and In-depth Course-ware

The course focuses on the hands-on implementation of Nexus NX-OS & ACI for both LAN & SAN switching, as well as the Unified Computing System (UCS). Students have hands-on access to both NX-OS and ACI-based hardware to learn first-hand how to implement data center technologies such as VDCs, vPC, FabricPath, VXLAN, OTV, ACI, Fibre Channel, and FCoE just to name a few.

Hardware topology used in this course mimics the one used in the actual CCIE Data Center v2 Lab Exam, and includes the following:/p>
