Description

Dear Customer,


Please join us for a one-day workshop featuring the new Cisco HyperFlex™ solution. Learn how Cisco HyperFlex solution addresses common challenges in application deployment, scaling, and management.

Hear about the hyperconvergence market, the opportunity for Cisco HyperFlex, and the go-to-market strategy.


Course Description

The Cisco HyperFlex family of products is a next-generation hyperconverged solution that is based on UCS and industry standard technologies. HyperFlex redefines the way data centers use and deploy compute, storage, and networking resources, while reducing management overhead and increasing efficiency. Topics will cover the solution architecture, UCS for HyperFlex, and data services for the HyperFlex solution. Having covered the solution architecture, you will then explore how data moves within the platform and how to monitor, manage, and upgrade the platform; you will also examine workload design guidelines for HyperFlex environments. It features additional content on networking design and operations including a discussion on integrating Cisco HyperFlex into new and existing data center environments. HX-TD incorporates a series of hands-on labs which serve to reinforce UCS and HyperFlex fundamentals as well as the physical and logical architecture of Cisco UCS and HyperFlex operations. You will learn how to install Cisco HyperFlex fabric interconnects and blade chassis, upgrade firmware, understand identity and physical resource pools, understand Service Profile templates and policies, and deploy servers in a HyperFlex computing environment.
