Course Description

The Data Center Unified Computing Design (DCUCD) course provides you with the knowledge to design scalable, reliable and intelligent Data Center Unified Computing solutions incorporating Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS), Cisco Nexus family switches, Catalyst 6500 in Virtual Switching System (VSS), MDS family SAN switches with NX-OS, Data Center NetworkManager (DCNM) and MDS Fabric Manager configuration and management applications, VMware server virtualisation products and Linux and Microsoft Windows operating system. Hands-on labs will reinforce these design concepts and enable you to become familiar with the UCS environment.

Objectives:

  • Understand Cisco Unified Computing solutions and identify server architecture.
  • Identify and understand Cisco UCS components, management, system connectivity, high availability, and size Cisco Unified Computing System.
  • Understand and design Cisco UCS server deployment.
  • Identify Cisco Unified Computing solution management aspects.
  • Understand and design Cisco Unified Computing network.
  • Understand and design Cisco Unified Computing SAN.
  • Identify historical performance characteristics, and reconnaissance and analysis tools, and determine aspects affecting the migration plan.
  • Identify Cisco UCS deployments and describe solution advantages.
  • Understand server virtualization and server virtualization networking.
  • Evaluate Cisco Unified Computing solution, understand design success criteria, and determine ROI.
