The Course Name: DCVAI -  Implementing Cisco Data Center Virtualization and Automation


The Course Duration: 5 Days


The Overview:


The purpose of this course is to teach participants how to implement and deploy automation of Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) and Cisco Nexus switches. It provides rich, hands-on experience building a data center solution.


What You Will Learn:


  •       How to describe two primary features to logically separate a physical switch.
  •       How to describe the Nexus 1000 virtual switch.
  •       How to describe programmability options on Cisco NX-OS.
  •       How to describe CLI features that simplify configuration management.
  •       How to use different scripting tools available with Cisco NX-OS.
  •       How to introduce the high-level concepts and describe the different fabric discovery parameters for Cisco ACI.
  •       How to create tenant-based policies for bare metal hosts.
  •       How to describe the integration of VM Manager Domains with Cisco ACI.
  •       How to describe how Cisco ACI supports multitfier applications.
  •       How to list Cisco ACI monitoring capabilities.
  •       How to describe Cisco ACI programmability and orchestration.
  •       How to describe vPC-based aggregation and availability.
  •       How to describe Cisco AVS, distributed firewall, and micro-segmentation.
  •       How to describe packet flows within the Cisco ACI.
  •       How to describe integrating Cisco ACI with external Layer 3 networks.
  •       How to outline the integration options with external Layer 2 networks.
  •       How to describe how L4–L7 services are inserted into the Cisco ACI fabric and how traffic is subsequently redirected.
