Introducing Cisco Nexus 9000 Switches in NX-OS Mode (DCIXN9K) is a 2-day, hands-on course that focuses on deployment and operations of the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches. Participants will learn how to configure and manage Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches using the NX-OS CLI, Python scripts, bash shell, NX-API, and OpenFlow.
Nexus 9000 Switches are highly programmable, high-density 1/10/40G Ethernet switches that offer highest performance, extensibility to 100GE switching, lowest cost per port, and extremely high flexibility and programmability for next generation automation and orchestration. Nexus 9000 Switches build on existing NX-OS technology to bring two new data center network deployment options to customers.
This course focuses on the first deployment option, known as Standalone Mode. This mode offers significant extensions to NX-OS Software in the area of programmability, including:
- A RESTful API, Python scripting, Linux bash access, and direct ASIC-level access for traffic flow monitoring
- Support for open-systems automation and orchestration DevOps platforms, including Puppet, Chef, and Cisco’s own onePK
- Support for software-defined networking (SDN) and emerging overlay network technologies, including VXLAN, OpenFlow, and the OpenDaylight controller
**Please bring your laptop to ensure you can participate in the lab sessions.**
- Experience with Cisco NX-OS Software
- Understanding of Cisco Data Center network architecture
