    Configuring the Cisco Nexus Data Center) 1.0

    The Configuring the Cisco Nexus Data Center (CCNDC) is a 5-day instructor-led course that introduces the learners to designing and configuring a data center network to support a virtual computing environment (VCE). The students learn about configuring the Cisco Nexus 7000 (NX-OS 6.1) and 5000 (NX-OS 5.2) Series Switches, as well as the Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders and Cisco Nexus 1000V virtual switch into a scalable data center network.

    Using the Cisco Nexus and MDS family of products, the learner constructs a highly available and modular network infrastructure that can be used to provide virtualized cloud-based services. Student will learn how to scale the data center Layer 2 environment using Cisco® FabricPath and Overlay Transport Virtualization (OTV).

    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
    • Configure a modern end-to-end data center infrastructure using the Cisco Nexus 2000, 3000, 5000, 6000, and 7000 Series products to support a virtual computing environment
    • Configure a Cisco Nexus unified fabric data center network using Ethernet and Fibre Channel over Ethernet
    • Configure a Cisco MDSbased Fibre Channel data center storage area network
    • Connect VMware vSphere ESX-based virtual machines using redundant connections to a unified data center fabric based on Cisco Nexus technology
    • Configure a data center network to enable virtual machine migration using VMware VMotion and Storage VMotion technologies
    • Configure a Cisco Nexus 1000V distributed virtual switching environment
    • Scale the Layer 2 data center environment using Cisco FabricPath
    • Connect multiple data centers together using OTV
