The Implementing Automation for Cisco Data Center Solutions (DCAUI) v1.0 course teaches you how to implement Cisco Data Center automated solutions including programming concepts, orchestration, and automation tools.
Through a combination of lessons and hands-on practice, you will manage the tools and learn the benefits of programmability and automation in the Cisco-powered data center. You will examine Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI®), software-defined networking (SDN) for data center and cloud networks, Cisco Nexus® (Cisco NX-OS) platforms for device-centric automation, and Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS®) for data center compute.
This course helps you prepare for the Automating Cisco Data Center Solutions (300-635 DCAUTO) certification exam.
In this course, you can expect to learn:
- How to leverage the tools and APIs to automate Cisco ACI powered data centers. Demonstrate workflows (configuration, verification, healthchecking, monitoring) using Python, Ansible, and Postman.
- How to leverage the various models and APIs of the Cisco Nexus Operating System platform to perform day 0 operations, improve troubleshooting methodologies with custom tools, augment the CLI using scripts, and integrate various workflows using Ansible and Python.
- About the paradigm shift of Model Driven Telemetry and understand the building blocks of a working solution.
- How the Cisco Data Center compute solutions can be managed and automated using API centric tooling, by using the Python SDK, PowerTool, and Ansible modules to implement various workflows on Cisco UCS, Cisco IMC, Cisco UCS Manager, Cisco UCS Director, and Cisco Intersight.
