Overview:

This is a hands-on course that focuses on designing and configuring a data center network to support a virtual computing environment (VCE).Students will construct a highly available and modular network infrastructure that can be used to provide virtualized cloud-based services using the Cisco Nexus® and MDS family of products. The Cisco Nexus 7000 and 5000 Series Switches as well as the Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders will be configured into a scalable data center network. VMware vSphere ESX-based virtual machines will be connected to the data center infrastructure. Topics covered include the configuration of a data center unified fabric using both Fibre Channel and Fibre Channel over Ethernet as well as the configuration of VMware virtual switching to a Cisco Nexus based data center network. In addition, the lecture and labs will cover how to configure both VMware VMotion and Storage VMotion in the data center environment.Students will also learn how to scale the data center Layer 2 environment using Cisco® FabricPath and Overlay Transport Virtualization (OTV).

Objectives:

  • Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:
  • Describe current data center strategies such as cloud computing,virtualization, and unified fabric
