Course Content

FlexPod Implementation and Administration is a 3-day instructor-led course where you will learn to set up, configure, and administer the FlexPod architecture. The course provides a comprehensive understanding of the configuration requirements for FlexPod at the network, storage, and compute layers of the architecture. FlexPod can be used to deploy and manage internal, external, and cloud architectures. Centralized administration is achieved by using management tools such as Cisco UCS Director, NetApp Virtual Storage Console, and vCenter. These management tools are introduced and practical hands on labs are used to reinforce topics.
