Cisco DCICT 1.0 – RAID Options and B-Series Blades and Cluster Options
This course is included in our On-demand training solution.
To provide redundancy, disks can be combined into arrays in several ways, which are referred to as RAID levels. This course describes the RAID adapter options for Cisco UCS C-Series Rack Servers. In this course, you will explore how Cisco UCS B-Series Blade Servers connect to the chassis and achieve external LAN and SAN connectivity. You will learn about the required information to perform initial Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) cluster setup for Cisco UCS B-Series Blade Servers and to validate cluster operation. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for Cisco exam 640-916: Introducing Cisco Data Center Technologies.
This course is targeted toward data center network engineers and learners embarking on a network administration or engineering career who wish to understand all the components that make up a real-world data center. In addition, anyone interested in the DCICT CCNA Data Center certification exam will benefit from this course. This course offers the official training for the Introducing Cisco Data Center Technologies (640-916 DCICT) certification exam which is a component exam for the CCNA Data Center certification.
