Course Description

UCS-CORE - Cisco Unified Computing System Core

Cisco Unified Computing System Core (UCS-CORE) teaches UCS LAN and SAN fundamentals, the physical and logical architecture of the Cisco UCS, and the basics of UCS server operations via a series of hands-on labs. You will learn how to install Cisco UCS fabric interconnects and blade chassis, upgrade firmware, create identity and physical resource pools, create Service Profile templates and policies, and deploy servers in a stateless computing environment. The course also examines the challenges in today's data centers and explores how Cisco UCS can be used to reduce complexity, increase scale and increase IT agility while reducing expense.
