Nexus Switching Currently available as VoD Storage This Class Computing

Copyright www.INE.com

Intended Audience
Class assumes solid foundation of LAN Switching & Routing Class assumes basic knowledge of SAN components
Disks, File Systems, Storage Protocols, HBAs, etc.

Class does not assume prior knowledge of implementing SAN Switching on NX-OS/SAN-OS

What To Expect Out Of Class What this class is


SAN within the scope of CCIE Data Center Small scope compared to Nexus Switching and Unified Computing

What this class is not


Detailed coverage of everything SAN I.e. this class is not CCIE Storage

Storage & Unified Computing System (UCS)

UCS storage topics will be covered in UCS class


Server profiles, boot from SAN, FI in NPV mode, etc.
