Note: DCAC9K is Firefly's version of Cisco's DCVAI. DCAC9K delivers the same content as DCVAI with the added benefit that the focus is on real-world operations of ACI and the labs and courseware are the most up-to-date and in sync with the latest Cisco software and hardware.
Equip your customers with the most up-to-date knowledge and the confidence they need to manage and implement Cisco Nexus 9000 switches in ACI mode—the off-the-shelf course material plus additional topics in just four days.
This course is designed for customers, systems engineers, and field engineers who are implementing and managing Cisco ACI. We will cover the key concepts behind ACI’s application-centric, policy-based view of infrastructure. You will learn how to configure ACI tenants, application profiles, contracts, and endpoints, how to connect the ACI Fabric to external networks and services, and how to configure hypervisor integration and L4-7 services. You will also learn strategies for migrating existing applications to an ACI fabric, and for automating and integrating configuration processes via scripting and APIs.
The course features extensive hands-on labs that begin with ACI fabric discovery and include deployment of application profiles, hypervisor integration, service graphs, external network connectivity, and a brief exploration of the APIC REST API.
PLEASE NOTE: In this Firefly delivery of the DCAC9K, the standard course materials are supplemented with the very latest product developments delivered by Cisco for the APIC 2.2 (1n) release including the following:
