Course Content:

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.

Course Objectives:

  • 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
