Course Details

The DCUCI – Implementing Cisco Data Center Unified Computing v6.2 course focus on deploying, securing, operating, and maintaining the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) B-Series Blade Servers and UCS C-Series Rack Servers for use in Data Centers. This hands-on course covers configuring and managing Cisco UCS servers using unified I/O networking for LAN and SAN connectivity, virtualizing server hardware identifiers to enable rapid recovery of server operating system images, implementing automation for Cisco UCS, configuring fault tolerance, implementing role-based access control (RBAC), backing up and restoring system configurations, and using the monitoring and troubleshooting tools in Cisco UCS Manager and Cisco Integrated Management Controller (IMC).

You’ll master the professional-level skills and technologies needed to implement the Cisco Data Center unified computing infrastructure, including unified computing implementation maintenance and operations, automation, security, and storage.
