Implementing Automation for Cisco Data Center Solutions (DCAUI)

( Duration: 3 Days )

The Implementing Automation for Cisco Data Center Solutions (DCAUI) training course teaches 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. You will study their current ecosystem of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), software development toolkits, and relevant workflows along with open industry standards, tools, and APIs, such as Python, Ansible, Git, JavaScript Object Notation (JSON), Yaml Ain't Markup Language (YAML), Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF), Representational State Transfer Configuration Protocol (RESTCONF), and Yet Another Generation (YANG).

By attending Implementing Automation for Cisco Data Center Solutions (DCAUI) workshop, attendees will learn to:

  • Leverage the tools and APIs to automate Cisco ACI powered data centers.
  • Demonstrate workflows (configuration, verification, healthchecking, monitoring) using Python, Ansible, and Postman.
  • Leverage the various models and APIs of the Cisco Nexus OS 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.
  • Describe the paradigm shift of Model Driven Telemetry and understand the building blocks of a working solution.
  • Describe 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.

  • Basic programming language concepts
  • Basic understanding of virtualization and VMware
  • Ability to use Linux and Command Line Interface (CLI) tools, such as Secure Shell (SSH) and bash
  • CCNP level data center knowledge
  • Foundational understanding of Cisco ACI
