Course Outline

Pre-Requisites

No required prerequisite courses.   Ideally basic understanding of routing and switching as well as a fundamental understanding of server virtualization with virtual machines.

Lessons

Some of the characteristic challenges that you may experience with a classic data center include time-consuming application deployment, error-prone switch-by-switch configuration, and problematic application performance monitoring. Application Centric Infrastructure Application Centric Infrastructure helps resolve these typical data center issues by significantly reducing customer application deployment time and improving IT alignment with business objectives and policy requirements.

In this course, you will practice developing essential skills for administrating and troubleshooting a Application Centric Infrastructure Fabric. You will discover how data center components corresponding to Application Centric Infrastructure Fabric components, and you will gain a deeper knowledge of the operation of a Tenants, EPGs, Bridge

Domains, VRFs, AEPs, and many other features of Application Centric Infrastructure through the process of configuring and administrating an Application Centric Infrastructure Fabric. Hands-on labs will guide you through steps to set up switches, group devices by application, apply policies at an application level, and give application level visibility for troubleshooting.

You will use best-practice Application Centric Infrastructure troubleshooting tools, such as Visore, API Inspector, Troubleshooting Wizard, Faults/Events/Audit Logs and various CLI commands in line with the OSI model, an established troubleshooting methodology, all to identify problems that impact fabric-wide connectivity. You will use the Application Policy Infrastructure Controller CLI and GUI to expose misconfigurations that trigger fault messages and practice applying GUI and CLI tools to resolve various troubleshooting scenarios.

By the end of this class, you will have a strong fundamental understanding to enable you to administer, configure and troubleshoot Application Centric Infrastructure in your production environment.

I would never take another course that starts at 11AM and goes to 9PM again. The way the course was laid out really took away from the capturing of what was presented as it was 5-6 hours of watching a screen before getting to the actual labs. There has to be a better way to lay out this particular course. In my previous course, the lectures were broken up by labs which worked out fantastic and kept you engaged in the course. There were days when in order to actually complete the labs, would go over the 9PM day end time frame. Was able to get the primary labs done, but if you want to get all the content completed, you cannot complete it in the window of this course, you will need to come back on your own time.

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.
