Cisco UCS Training

Cisco Unified Computing System technology has redefined the enterprise computing environment. It is an architecture data center server platform composed of computing hardware, virtualization support, switching fabric, and management software. The Cisco Unified Computing System integrates network, computer resources, storage access and virtualization resources into a single cohesive system.

How Cisco UCS works

The Cisco Unified Computing System provides unified, embedded management of all software and hardware components with Cisco UCS Manager, which can control up to 160 servers in multiple chassis and thousands of Cisco UCS components. Every instance of Cisco UCS Manager and all the Cisco UCS components managed by it form a domain. Cisco UCS Central is a software product for scaling the management of multiple, globally distributed Cisco UCS domains from a single pane. The two Cisco UCS management products described here provide integration with industry-leading systems management solutions to ease adoption of Cisco UCS in IT departments

This course will provide administrative and operational control with the knowledge and skills to virtualize UCS. Unified Computing System integrates server management with network and storage resources to meet the rapidly changing needs in today's data centers. New computing resources can be deployed "just in time".
