This extensively hands-on course focuses on deploying, securing, operating and maintaining the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) and UCS C-Series Rack Servers for use in data centers. It covers configuring and managing Cisco UCS servers using unified I/O networking for LAN and SAN connectivity, virtualizing server hardware identifiers to enable rapid recovery of server operating system images, automating UCS deployments using UCS Central Software and Cisco Integrated Management Controller (IMC) Supervisor, configuring fault tolerance, implementing rolebased access control (RBAC), backing up and restoring system configurations, using the monitoring and troubleshooting tools in Cisco UCS Manager and Cisco IMC..
The course is designed to help students prepare for Cisco's CCNP Data Center certification and for professional-level data center roles.
Students considered for this training should have attended the following classes or obtained equivalent level of knowledge:
The knowledge, skills, and attitudes that a learner is expected to have before attending this course are as follows:
The goal of this course is to teach learners how to install, configure, manage, and troubleshoot Cisco Unified Computing System B-Series blade servers and C-Series rack servers in a virtualized data center environment.
Implementing Cisco Data Center Unified Computing is a 5-day hands-on course that focuses on deployment and operations of the Cisco Unified Computing System B-Series Blade Servers and C-Series Rack Servers. Participants will learn how to configure and manage Cisco UCS servers using Unified I/O networking for LAN and SAN connectivity, and how to virtualize server hardware identifiers to enable rapid recovery of server operating system images through service profile mobility. Participants will practice configuring fault tolerance, implementing role-based access control (RBAC), backing up and restoring system configurations, and using the monitoring and troubleshooting tools in Cisco UCS Manager,Cisco Integrated Management Controller, Cisco UCS Central and Cisco IMC Supervisor. The students will also get to know the XML API that the UCS Manager offers.
Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:
This course leads to the certification: 300-175 DCUCI Implementing Cisco Data Center Unified Computing
This exam tests a candidate's knowledge of implementing data center technologies including unified computing, unified computing maintenance and operations, automation, unified computing security, and unified computing storage.
