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.

  • Explore the current data center requirements, the Cisco ACI and its core features.
  • Discover the leaf and spine architecture, the VXLAN overlay, Bridge Domains and Endpoint groups along with their new functions.
  • 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. Welcome to my course on implementing Cisco A C I. I'm a lead network and security architect and I'm based in Ireland. The traditional daily center was built for a different era. And now, with all the change in our current environment, we need to modernize the data Senate with STN so we can fully integrate boat virtualized on non virtualized work goes along with network services in economic fashion. The Cisco a C I use is standards based protocol such as B G p while relying on a leaf in spite apology for a bus nous. It uses concept and features that, for example, abstract A lot of complex is that we had in the past datas and designs. In this course, we're gonna discuss building out the A C I A logical infrastructure here. We're going to examine the fabric validation process access policies, the various logical configurations that could be carried out with tenants. Vera bridged inmates on e PGS. We will also discuss the A C workload segmentation. Some of these concepts that were implemented will be contract with subjects of filters in traffic on inter e p G communication along with various policy enforcement options. We will also deep dive into the A C I pocket forwarding on various optimization techniques. Here we will look at in point learning the normalisation process. Various pocket walks on some of the security features that could be used to detect road end points. By the end of this course, you will have a solid understanding of Cisco A. C. I. The logical infrastructure configuration on the various ways to perform workload segmentation on options to optimize the fabric. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn implementing Cisco A.
