Lessons

Learn how to virtualize and program data centers, as well as implement the Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI).

In this course, you will prepare for the Cisco CCNP Data Center certification exam and for professional-level data center roles. The focus of this skills-building course is on the implementation and deployment automation of Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) and Cisco Nexus switches. The course provides rich, hands-on experience in building a data center solution based on Cisco ACI.

What You'll Learn

• Implement infrastructure virtualization solutions, such as VDC, VRFs, Cisco Nexus 1000v, and Cisco AVS
• Identify programmability methods and program Cisco Nexus switches using XML, Python, and NXAPI
• Implement a Cisco ACI solution that provides fabric connectivity to bare-metal hosts, virtual machines, and external Layer 2 and Layer 3 domains
• Integrate Cisco ACI with virtual machine managers, such as VMware vCenter
• Enforce application policies in intra- and inter-tenant scenarios
• Deploy Cisco AVS and microsegmentation
• Program Cisco ACI using Python, RESTful APIs, and Arya
• Orchestrate Cisco ACI using the Cisco UCS Director
• Insert Layer 4 - Layer 7 services into the Cisco ACI fabric
• Monitor Cisco ACI deployment using atomic counters and other monitoring tools

Who Needs to Attend

Wasn’t as advanced as I thought it would be. There was an issue when the day my course was the first time they used a new platform.. from adobe to something called zoom; I had to call support line cause it stated our instructor wasn’t present. Thankfully I called cause everyone online was in the adobe virtual classroom waiting for what looked like a teacher who didn’t show up for class (IT didn’t get anything resolved until 10mins after start time). I felt like he was really getting hung up on very basic knowledge for the first half of the course (talking about how to create tabs and drag formulas as an example). I completed files a few times before he was done explaining. There was a scheduled fire drill for them (roughly 30mins)that also cut into our time, which wasn’t deducted from the hour lunch break or the two, fifteen min breaks. I also really wish he touched base more on the automating workbook functions portion which we barely did. I'm happy there were/are those study guides (learning videos) and exams to take on my own time that I hope after I've had the class are still available for me to learn from.
