This course focus on the Data Center technologies focuses within Cisco networking. It covers the key components for implementing data center technologies such as networking, computing, storage networking, automation, and security. By the end of this course, you’ll have the knowledge you need to implement Cisco Data Center technologies. In addition, these courses align with the objectives in the DCCOR (350-601) exam and can help you prepare for the exam. The goal of the course is to not only cover the objectives for the CCNP Data Center Core exam but also provide a solid learning resource for mastering key concepts regarding planning and delivering a Cisco Data Center solution.
This complete video course guides you from an Introduction to the Data Center technologies such as Layer2 and Layer3 features, Overlay technologies such as OTV and VXLAN, Application Data Center Infrastructure, Compute with network and Storage management, Hyperflex, Security and Programmability, and Automation. The key topics covered in this course will enable students to understand and implement the key data center technologies covering network, Software-Defined Data Center using Cisco ACI, Storage and Compute and finally automating the services in Data Center environment. The topics covered in the CCNP Data Center Core Technologies are the foundational topics for designing and implementing a Next-Generation Data Center using Cisco hardware and Software.
Cisco Nexus OS (NX-OS) is a next-generation modular software, primarily targeting Data Center networking, with the motivation to provide the key features of virtualization, high availability, and upgradeability on the Nexus line of products. The NX-OS software is used across all Nexus data center products which can run in standalone as well as ACI mode and as SAN-OS.
This course is for candidates who can install, configure, and manage Cisco Nexus switches, Cisco MDS switches; implement and deploy automation of Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI), implement compute using Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS).
What you will learn
Candidates should be familiar with data center solutions to some degree. Additionally, you should have networking knowledge equivalent to Cisco CCNA certification.
