DCUFD - Designing Cisco Data Center Unified Fabric v3.0

Course Description/Agenda

In this course, you will learn about Cisco's high-end switching portfolio, architectural components of the Cisco Nexus and Catalyst switching lines, Cisco IOS and NX-OS software architecture, as well as management from the network design perspective. You'll examine the features of these platforms, ranging from continuous operation, resiliency, and virtualization to power efficiency and management.

You will learn how to design a data center network architecture as an Ethernet-only data center, or as a data center using unified fabric. You will learn about the various service modules and line cards for Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches and Cisco ASA 5500 Adaptive Security Appliances, and you'll get an introduction to the Cisco Application Networking Services (ANS) portfolio, including ACE module and ACE appliance.
