Nexus 1000V Implementation

Course Description

In this training you are going to learn about VMware Virtualization briefly. You will get best practices and methods for implementing Nexus 1000v .During this training we take a hard look at the components that make up the Nexus 1000v how they communicate and different communication options.

We also discuss the considerations to take in to account when deploying the Nexus 1000v, such as physical switch configuration, physical server connectivity, and the information needed before starting implementation.We cover installing the Virtual Supervisor Module using several different methods with the detailed lab. We are also teaching you the process to upgrade an existing Nexus 1000v implementation to a new version.
The Nexus 1000v Implementation course intended audiences areNetwork and Systems Engineers, Consulting Systems Engineers and Server Administrators. This course is also useful for Network Designers, Administrators and Managers.

This course is mainly focuses on the feature and architecture of the Nexus 1000v switches. From this course you will learn more about the VMware virtualization concepts.  This will help you to understand Nexus 1000v implementation very easily. After this course you will be expert on the key components and procedures needed to install, configure, manage, and troubleshoot the Cisco Nexus 1000V Switch.
