Deploy, Configure, and Scale UCS Domains with Cisco UCS Central

Session Detail:    Virtual 2 Day

Deploy, Manage, and Scale Cisco UCS Domains with UCS Central (DCUCSC) is a 2-day training program. Cisco UCS Central provides scalable management solution for growing Cisco UCS environments. Cisco UCS Central simplifies the management of multiple Cisco UCS domains from a single management point through standardization, global policies and global ID pools. Cisco UCS Central does not replace Cisco UCS Manager, which is the policy driven management for single UCS domain. Instead Cisco UCS Central focuses on managing and monitoring the UCS domains on a global level, across multiple individual Cisco UCS Classic and Mini management domains worldwide. During this 2-day lab-driven course, students will become familiar with, deploy, configure, and manage multiple UCS domains with UCS Central.
