Implementing Cisco Data Center Unified Fabric

Duration: 
5 days

Overview

Implementing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCII) v6.0 is a five-day instructor-led course that is designed to help students prepare for the Cisco CCNP Data Center certification and for professional-level data center roles.

Audience

The goal of the course is to develop competency in learners to implement data center components such as Cisco Nexus and MDS switches as well as the Cisco Nexus Fabric Extenders. Focus of this course is on understanding and implementing LAN and SAN switching technologies, device management and monitoring.

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

  • Configure RSTP, MST, and port channels and implement Cisco FabricPath, OTV, VXLAN, and LISP
  • Configure first-hop redundancy, routing, and multicast in the data center
  • Configure user management and implement system security features on Nexus switches
  • Perform basic Fibre Channel configuration, manage Fibre Channel domains, and implement Fibre Channel port security and binding
  • Configure FCoE
  • Configure distributed device aliases, zoning, NPV, and FCIP
  • Configure system management and infrastructure monitoring
