Put It Up To Eleven: New Cisco CCNA DC Course on Pluralsight

As a tribute to all of the Spinal Tap fans out there, I’ve cranked my latest course Cisco CCNA Data Center: Nexus, Advanced Switching & SAN up to eleven and released it on Pluralsight. Yay!

What can you expect from this course?

  • Nearly 4.5 hours of me going deep into the inner workings of Cisco Nexus, advanced switching concepts, and Storage Area Networking (SAN).
  • Real demos! Walk through initial setup and configuration with me using a physical Nexus 7010, Nexus 5548UP, and MDS 9222i.
  • Easter eggs galore, including the use of Voltron in a technical analogy based on user request.

And here’s the official course description:

course-modulesThe CCNA Data Center covers a wide range of technologies found in the data center. In this course, we dive deep into LAN architecture with the Cisco Nexus line of switches, their specific use cases, and how to perform initial setup and configuration. We’ll also look at advanced switching techniques, such as Virtual Port Channels, FabricPath, and Virtual Device Contexts (VDCs). Finally, we’ll switch gears and focus on Storage Area Network (SAN) design and implementation with the Cisco MDS line of switches, including port types, Virtual SAN (VSAN), zoning, masking, and Fabric Login (FLOGI).
