Through a combination of lessons and hands-on practice, you will manage the tools and learn the benefits of programmability and automation in the Cisco-powered Data Center. You will examine Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI®), Software-Defined Networking (SDN) for data center and cloud networks, Cisco Nexus® (Cisco NX-OS) platforms for device-centric automation, and Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS®) for Data Center compute. You will study their current ecosystem of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), software development toolkits, and relevant workflows along with open industry standards, tools, and APIs, such as Python, Ansible, Git, JavaScript Object Notation (JSON), Yaml Ain't Markup Language (YAML), Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF), Representational State Transfer Configuration Protocol (RESTCONF), and Yet Another Generation (YANG).

This course also earns you 24 Continuing Education (CE) credits towards recertification.

OBJECTIVES

After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Leverage the tools and APIs to automate Cisco ACI powered data centers.
  • Demonstrate workflows (configuration, verification, healthchecking, monitoring) using Python, Ansible, and Postman.
  • Leverage the various models and APIs of the Cisco Nexus OS platform to perform day 0 operations, improve troubleshooting methodologies with custom tools, augment the CLI using scripts, and integrate various workflows using Ansible and Python.
  • Describe the paradigm shift of Model Driven Telemetry and understand the building blocks of a working solution.
  • Describe how the Cisco Data Center compute solutions can be managed and automated using API centric tooling, by using the Python SDK, PowerTool, and Ansible modules to implement various workflows on Cisco UCS, Cisco IMC, Cisco UCS Manager, Cisco UCS Director, and Cisco Intersight.

AUDIENCE

Individuals looking to understand how to implement automated solutions in a Cisco Data Center

CERTIFICATION

Recommended as preparation for the following exam:

  • 300-635  -  Automating Cisco Data Center Solutions (DCAUTO) exam

 

After you pass 300-635 DCAUTO exam, you earn the Cisco Certified DevNet Specialist – Data Center Automation and Programmability certification, and you satisfy the concentration exam requirements for both the CCNP Data Center certification and the Cisco Certified DevNet Professional certification.
