DCCUCS - Configuring Cisco Unified Computing System v1.0

Overview

Duration: 3 days

The Configuring Cisco Unified Computing System (DCCUCS) v1.0 shows you how to deploy, secure, operate, and maintain Cisco Unified Computing System™ (Cisco UCS®) B-series blade servers, Cisco UCS C-Series, and S-Series rack servers for use in data centers. You will learn how to implement management and orchestration software for Cisco UCS. You will gain hands-on practice: configuring key features of Cisco UCS, Cisco UCS Director, and Cisco UCS Manager; implementing UCS management software including Cisco UCS Manager and Cisco Intersight™ and more.
