DCNX — Implementing Cisco NX-OS Switches and Fabrics in the Data Center


DCNX - Implementing Cisco NX-OS Switches and Fabrics in the Data Center

Course Overview

The Implementing Cisco NX-OS Switches and Fabrics in the Data Center (DCNX) v1.0 course gives you a detailed understanding of the Cisco® Nexus switch platform and teach you how to install, configure, and manage Cisco Nexus® switch platforms in a scalable, highly available environment. Through a combination of lectures and hands-on labs, you will learn how to describe various aspects of the Cisco Nexus product families and platforms, including implementation, management, security, programmability and storage. Additionally, you will learn how to configure device aliases and zoning, Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), and N-Port Identifier Virtualization (NPIV), and N-Port Virtualization (NPV) modes.
