Cisco DC ACI

Cisco recently came up with their Nexus 9000 family of switches that are ideal for small-to-midsize data centers providing benefits like price, performance, port-density, programmability, and power efficiency. These switches also offer I/O consolidation, transport freedom, and delivery of advanced networking abilities like ISSU and high availability.

The best thing about the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series switches is that it offers two modes of operation.

Mode 1: Cisco NX-OS Software, the standard Cisco Nexus switch environment.

Mode 2: Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI), making organizations’ hardware infrastructure to take full advantage of an automated, policy-based, systems management approach.

This is what Implementing the Cisco ACI Training course is all about; advancing data center professionals with skills to deploy and manage Cisco Nexus 9000 switches in Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) mode. Moreover, they learn the connection of ACI fabric to external services & networks and the basics of Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) integration.

But without the knowledge and skills to architect, implement, and manage Cisco Nexus switches in data center environments, no professionals can proceed with the Cisco ACI training course and gain skills to deploy and manage Cisco Nexus 9000 switches in ACI mode.

So, PyNet Labs came up with its Cisco Nexus + Cisco DC ACI, a customized training program covering Cisco’s in-demand course DCNX and DCACI certification training together. Cisco DCNX training at PyNet Labs offers professionals with a technical overview of the Cisco Nexus Switches key capabilities such as platforms, architecture, software, management, and features.

After the Cisco Nexus training, candidates will be able to,

  • Easily identify the platforms that make the Cisco Nexus 7000, 5000, 3000, and 2000 product families
  • Implement Cisco Nexus
  • Explore Cisco Nexus basic features
  • Describe virtual device contexts
  • Describe port channels and virtual port channels
  • Configure First Hop Redundancy protocols

And become well versed to start with Cisco DC ACI 300-620 certification training with PyNet Labs.

Why do Network Engineers should learn how to Convert Cisco Nexus 9000 NX-OS Mode to ACI Mode?

ACI is a network type that is deployed, monitored, and managed in a way that supports rapid application change and has become the need of an hour for any organization. Since no other Cisco Nexus series switches like 1000, 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, 7000 can be deployed in Cisco ACI mode, Data Center Specialists must equip themselves with Nexus 9000 deployment and management skills to remain relevant to their domain.

As Bruno Mercer, the Project Director of Data Center Infrastructure and Cloud, La Poste said, “An application-centric architecture is the only choice to allow the network to be accessible to anyone”. No doubt Nexus 9000 series switches running the ACI Network Operating System is going to be networking essential in the future.

  • Network Professionals skilled to run Cisco Nexus 9000 Switches to NX-OS mode and ACI mode can allow network fabrication for their organization.
  • They will be able to couple Nexus switches with a centralized controller called the Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC).
  • Cisco APIC being the unifying point of automation, telemetry, and management for the Cisco ACI fabric, it enables an application policy model approach to the data center.
  • DC ACI skilled Network Engineers can introduce a design as small as two Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches providing a path to scale out the data center as it grows, highlighting spine-leaf designs.

Cisco Nexus 9000 Series switches’ cost-effective design approach coupled with a rich feature set makes it a great fit for commercial data centers and lets Network Engineers have advanced career opportunities.

Topology To Be Used in Cisco Nexus + DCACI Training

The Spine-leaf topology is based on a Clos network architecture, originated from Charles Clos at Bell Laboratories.

This architecture is typically deployed as two layers:

  • Layer 1: Spines (aggregation layer)
  • Layer 2: Leaves (access layer)

The Spine-leaf topology provides high-bandwidth, low-latency, nonblocking server-to-server connectivity.

As you can see in the image below, all devices connected to the fabric are an equal number of hops away from one another delivering predictable latency and high bandwidth between servers. Throughout the Cisco ACI lab training, you would learn to connect Cisco ACI fabric to various external services and networks.
