Cisco Data Center Core: Configuring Network Storage

by Sean Douglas

Data centers have been going through rapid evolution, growing massively in scale, and becoming increasingly sophisticated. This course will examine data center storage solutions that are deployed in Cisco data centers.

What you'll learn

Cisco is leading a technological revolution with devices that offer many storage infrastructure services, that help you improve agility, and reduce risks in daily operations. In this course, Cisco Data Center Core: Configuring Network Storage, you will learn about data center storage solutions. First, you will understand Fibre Channel, which is a standards-based technology used for storage networking. Next, you will discover how to deploy the storage services device-aliases and zoning within the fabric that help you improve agility and reduce risks in daily operations. You will be able to configure N port virtualization and N Port ID virtualization to simplify and scale large data center fabrics. You will also explore NAS and SAN solutions. Finally, you will examine how Fibre Channel over Ethernet technology allows the transferring of Fibre Channel frames over the Ethernet. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge needed to deploy Fibre Channel, zoning, device-aliases, NPV, and Fibre Channel over Ethernet Cisco in data centers.
