Description

Data centers have been going through rapid evolution: growing massively in scale and becoming increasingly sophisticated. Cisco is leading this technological revolution. In this course, Cisco Data Center Core: Implementing Automation, we’re going to examine how administrators can program, manage, and maintain their data center infrastructures using application programming interfaces: Cisco Application-Centric Infrastructure (ACI) with the Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC), as well as NX-API, REST, and a variety of automation programs.

First, you will learn how the Cisco APIC and ACI architecture uses endpoints and policies to simplify the deployment of virtual machines and applications, while providing them access to network, compute, and storage capabilities. Next you will explore how to define tenants and their components in a tenant-based environment, as well as create endpoint groups (EPGs) in Cisco ACI. You'll examine different cloud computing architectures and deployment models. You’ll also learn how Cisco automation components enable you to use scripting, implement orchestration, and apply policy to configure and maintain your data center network environments. Finally, you're going to discover a variety of programmability tools that can be deployed to increase resource utilization and provide greater flexibility and scalability. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge needed to understand the tools used to manage, maintain, and optimize Cisco data center deployments as well as how to pass the Cisco Data Center Core fundamentals exam.

Course Overview
[Autogenerated] E. Everyone. My name is Shawn Douglas, and I want to welcome you to my course. Cisco Data center Core Implementing automation I'm a Cisco engineer instructor. See Sienna and CCMP and routing and switching collaboration in data center. Cisco Nexus Switches offer a variety of ways that administrators can program, manage and maintain their data center infrastructures from a pick Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure to APIs application programming interfaces in Cisco Data center Core. Implementing automation You're going to learn about these program ability solutions. A swell as nXML API rest in a variety of automation programs. In this course, which is the fourth one in a series that we've created on the Cisco Data center core technology. We're going to examine Cisco Data center Core Implementing automation A swell is help prepare you for the Cisco Data center course certification. We want to save you time and give you the skills that you'll need to implement programming in your Cisco Data center deployments. By the end of this course, you'll understand how administrators can do program and automate processes on the Cisco Nexus switches. Before beginning this course, you should have a solid understanding of Cisco I ___ networking either by being a C Sienna and routing and switching or data center or having experience with Cisco Data Center technology. I hope you'll join us as we save you time and give you solutions with the Cisco Data center core implementing automation course at Pluralsight.
