Course Description:

This five-day hands-on course focuses on the deployment and operation of a Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS). Delegates will learn how to configure and manage Cisco UCS servers with consolidated I/O networking for LAN and SAN connectivity, how to virtualize server properties to enable simple and rapid mobility of server operating system images between physical servers. Hands-on labs enable delegates to gain experience in configuring fault tolerance, implementing a multi-tenant management model, backing up and restoring system configurations, and how tomake the most of the monitoring and troubleshooting tools built intoCisco UCS Manager.

After you complete this course you will be able to:

  • Explain how Cisco UCS addresses key problems in Data Center server environments
  • Describe the Cisco UCS system architecture,
  • Identify UCS hardware components, and options
  • Perform the key operational tasks required to deploy a Cisco Unified Computing System
  • Explain the connectivity requirements for the Cisco UCS platform
  • Configure Physical and logical Unified Fabric Connectivity
