Cisco Nexus product portfolio with NX-OS operating system is one of the most important new product innovations that the company has been done in recent years. This product portfolio is targeted to one of the fastest growing areas in tele-/datacommunications networks – the Datacenters. Ranging from Cisco Nexus 7000 backbone switch to Cisco Nexus 1000V virtualized software switches, these products fulfill all the demands regarding datacenter switching both on LAN and SAN side.
The purpose of this course is twofold. First is to give participants broad overview of the Nexus product line, its position inside modern datacenter network architecture and all the necessary/required components that are needed to create a Nexus-based solution. All products, including Nexus 9000, Nexus 7000, Nexus 5000, Nexus 4000, Nexus 3000, Nexus 2000 and Nexus 1000V are detailed. In addition, the operating system NX-OS architecture and relevant benefits over other OSes are discussed.
The second part of the course is to give participants hands-on experience on how to install, configure and to a certain extent, troubleshoot Cisco Nexus –based datacenter architectures.
Participants of the course are expected to have basic knowledge of networking including e.g. how to configure basic LAN and routing features. Experience of Cisco IOS configuration helps to understand the topics and exercises.
Course Goal: The goal of this course is to offer practical hands-on view of the Cisco Nexus product portfolio.
