Virtualization has caused innovation in every area of the datacenter. The Cisco Nexus 1000v provides virtual environments with a switching environment that runs the same NX-OS operating system as physical Cisco Nexus switches. In this course we cover the Nexus 1000v completely. This includes the architecture and components of the 1000v as well as deployment recommendations and examples so that you can deploy this switch in to your existing environment with minimal disruption. A good understanding of VMware, network administration, and virtualization will provide a proper foundation for this course.
