Course Introduction

Course Overview

Duration: 5 days

Implementing Cisco Data Center Unified Computing (DCUCI) v6.0 is a five days instructor led course that is designed to help students prepare for the Cisco CCNP Data Center certification and for professional level data center roles. The focus of this skills building course is on deploying, securing, operating and maintaining the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) and UCS C-series Rack Servers for use in data centers. The extensively hands-on course covers configuring and managing Cisco UCS Servers using unified I/O netoworking 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 role-based access, backing up and restoring system configurations, and using the monitoring and troubleshooting tools in Cisco UCS Manager and Cisco IMC.
