Description

The traditional data center is not very agile and was built for a different era. In this course, Designing and Architecting the Cisco ACI, you’ll learn the new features and functions of the ACI, with the ability to design and integrate the solution.

First, you’ll explore the current data center requirements, the Cisco ACI, and its core features. Next, you’ll discover the leaf and spine architecture, the VXLAN overlay, Bridge Domains, and Endpoint Groups along with their new functions.

Finally, you’ll learn how to extend and integrate the Cisco ACI. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of the Cisco ACI needed to design and architect its new components and features.

Course Overview
[Autogenerated] Hello. My name is Matt Connor from Network Insight and welcome to my course, designing an architect ing Cisco a. C I. I'm a lead network and security architect, and I'm based in Ireland. The traditional data center was built for a different era and now would have changed in a current environment. We need to modernize the data center with STN so we can fully integrate but virtualized a non virtualized workloads along with network services in economic fashion. The Cisco A C I use is standards based protocols such as B, G, P and V Exxon. Why relying on a leaf in spite apology for robustness. It uses new concepts and features that, for example, abstract. A lot of complex is that we have in the past. In this course, we're go discuss the core aspects off the Cisco A. C I. The solution is based on STN uses a leaf in spite apology with a V X, down over a fully integrated writing work knows on dynamically inserts therefore to their seven services. We will also discuss the functions of new concepts off the Cisco a. C I. Some of these include endpoint groups, bridge domains, party base redirect under new Way that Cisco, A C I learned in Ford's traffic were also deep. Dive into the Cisco A C I extensions with the multi party multi site designs. Here, we can have a true active active application deployment in a controlled fashion. By the end of this course, you will have a solid understanding of the Cisco A C I, the details, all the solution, the new protocols and concepts along with various ways to extend the A c I. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn designing on architect ING Francisco A. C I course are plume site.
