Introducing Cisco Nexus 9000 Switches in NX-OS Mode (DCINX9K) 1.0

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.

About this course:

In this course, 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.

The average salary for Systems Engineer is $84,166 per year.
