The CCNA Data Center covers a wide range of technologies found in the data center. In this course, we dive deep into LAN architecture with the Cisco Nexus line of switches, their specific use cases, and how to perform initial setup and configuration. We'll also look at advanced switching techniques, such as Virtual Port Channels, FabricPath, and Virtual Device Contexts (VDCs). Finally, we'll switch gears and focus on Storage Area Network (SAN) design and implementation with the Cisco MDS line of switches, including port types, Virtual SAN (VSAN), zoning, masking, and Fabric Login (FLOGI).
VMware Virtual SAN (VSAN) is a software-defined storage solution for vSphere infrastructures. Built into the vSphere hypervisor, Virtual SAN offers a new, converged storage solution for virtual machines, potentially eliminating the need for separate, costly, SAN, and NAS storage. In this course, you'll learn how to plan, install, configure, and administer VMware Virtual SAN.
This course teaches the fundamentals of the major storage capabilities in Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 6. Topics include Disks, Partitions, Filesystems, Logical Volume Manager (LVM), Network Attached Storage (NFS, Samba, CIFS), and Storage Area Networking (iSCSI). The course is heavily hands-on, and maps to objectives required for Red Hat certifications, including RHCSA and RHCE.
