Description

This 3 Day ACI course will bootstrap your knowledge from novice to configuring external L2/L3, Hypervisors and bare metal servers with ACI. This course will help you understand ACIs positioning in the Software Defined Network. The 3 day course will provide additional time to dig deeper into the ACI concepts.

The course covers many of the key concepts behind ACI’s application-centric infrastructure and policy-based architecture. Through a combination of lecture and hands on lab configuring the ACI solution, including configuring tenants, application network profiles (ANP), contracts, endpoints, VMM integration and how to connect the ACI Fabric to an external L2 and L3 networks, along with L4-L7 services.

The 3 Day course will include hands on covering Fabric Bring up and initialization. Service Integration labs are included. Discussion with respect to Data Center to Data Center connectivity, multi-pod and multi-site.

The course will include intense hands-on labs on real physical hardware of all the key functions of ACI. You will not share with other students during the labs. You will be provided with your own ACI Tenant, Vcenter Server, ESXi Hosts and numerous virtual machines.

Target Audience

It is designed for network and data center Cloud Systems Architects, as well as server Administrators Application developers and security engineers as well as virtualization administrators, Architects, Systems Engineers and Field Engineers who are selling, implementing and/or managing Cisco ACI
