Designing Storage Networking for Cisco Data Center Infrastructure

by Greg Dickinson

Cloud applications are very data-intensive; datacenters must have readily available storage to meet this demand. This course covers managing storage in Cisco datacenters. We examine various methods of providing storage to a datacenter network.

What you'll learn

Modern databases and web applications are highly data-driven, requiring loads of back-end storage to support them. In this course, Designing Storage for Cisco Data Center Infrastructure, you will learn foundational knowledge of Cisco storage hardware, and how to determine the best configuration to support your applications. First, you will learn the specifics of Fibre Channel and iSCSI. Next, you will learn how to ensure proper traffic prioritization on a storage network. Finally, you will explore how to base the storage configuration on the workload requirements. When you are finished with this course, you will have the knowledge of Cisco's storage hardware and the various methods it can be used.
