DCINX9K - Cisco Nexus 9000 Design and Configuration

Learn the features and capabilities of Cisco's next-generation Nexus switch

GK# 5358

Course Overview

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

Through lecture and hands-on labs, you'll learn about the hardware architecture of the Nexus 9000 and the new programmability features and interfaces that have been added to NX-OS. We highly recommend that you have prior knowledge of NX-OS and the Nexus 5000, 6000, or 7000 platforms.
