  • DCACIA 1.0 – Implementing Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure – Advanced
    5 days  (Instructor Led Online)  |  Data Center Virtualization

    Course Details


    The Implementing Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure – Advanced (DCACIA) v1.0 course shows you how to integrate the capabilities of the Cisco & Nexus & 9000 Series Switches in Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI) mode. You will learn how to configure and manage Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches in ACI mode providing enhanced management and policy framework, along with the protocols used in the underlying fabric. The course also covers how to use Cisco ACI as a policy-driven solution that integrates software and hardware, and how to implement Cisco ACI Multi-Pod and Multi-Site deployments. You will gain hands-on practice implementing advanced ACI capabilities such as Rogue Endpoint Feature, Transit Routing, VRF Route Leaking, Contracts and Zoning Rules, Policy Based Redirect to Layer 4 & 7 Service Node, Multi-Pod Fabric and Cisco ACI Multi-Site Orchestrator.


    This course will help you:


    • Learn best practices for implementing and managing Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches in Cisco ACI mode
    • Leverage the integration software and hardware solutions to expand the capabilities of data center and cloud networks
    • Maximize the benefits of an application-centric approach to deliver automation and flexibility in IT services, and automate fabric deployment and configuration


    After taking this course, you should be able to:

    • Integrate Cisco ACI advanced fabric packet forwarding
    • Implement advanced ACI policy and tenant configuration
    • Demonstrate Cisco ACI Multi-Pod deployment
    • Understand the details and consideration of implementing and integrating traditional network with Cisco ACI
    • Configure Cisco ACI Service Graph Policy-Based Redirect (PBR)
    • Describe Cisco ACI Multi-Site deployment
