In this intermediate Cisco skills training, Jeff Kish covers the basic operability and terminology of Cisco Unified Computing Systems (UCS).
Cisco UCS allows you to easily shift loads, perform hardware maintenance, and effortlessly scale all your resources from a single point of management — as long as you know what you’re doing. Though this USC Essentials skills training maps to a CCNP exam, Jeff breaks down the topics so anyone can get a basic rundown on UCS deployment and maintenance or just see why UCS is a popular choice.
Once you're done with this Cisco UCS Essentials training, you'll know how to configure UCS for RBAC, install a hypervisor using virtual media, upgrade a UCS environment by selecting and downloading the appropriate firmware, and schedule a maintenance window for an upgrade.
For IT managers, this Cisco training can be used for 642-999 DCUCI exam prep, on-boarding new network administrators, as a Cisco reference resource, or curated into individual or team training plans.
Note: The Cisco CCNP Data Center 642-999 DCUCI exam associated with this course was retired July 3, 2017. However, this course still retains value as a training resource.
