Cisco Nexus 9000 Design and Configuration (DCINX9K) Course Description

Duration: 2.00 days (16 hours)

Cisco Career Guide

In this course, you will learn about the next-generation Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches, which are highly programmable and high density. In fact, 1/10/40G Ethernet switches offer the highest performance and extensibility to 100GE switching and lowest cost-per-port. They offer extremely high flexibility and programmability for next-generation automation and orchestration. Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches build on existing NX-OS technology to bring two new data center network deployment options to customers.

You will learn about the first deployment option, known as Standalone Mode. This mode offers significant extensions to NX-OS in the area of programmability, including:

  • A RESTful API, Python scripting, Linux BASH access, and direct ASIC-level access for traffic flow monitoring

  • Support for open-systems automation and orchestration DevOps platforms, including Puppet, Chef, and Cisco's own onePK

  • Support for software-defined networking (SDN) and emerging overlay network technologies, including VXLAN, OpenFlow, and the OpenDaylight Controller
