Deploying OpenStack Cloud - Fundamentals (OCDCU) v2.0 is a four-day instructor-led training course designed for Systems and Field Engineers, Consulting Systems Engineers, Technical Solutions Architects, Integrators, and Partners. The course is targeted towards individuals who are responsible for installation, configuration, and the implementation of an OpenStack Cloud. This course covers the key components and procedures needed to install, configure, and deploy OpenStack Cloud using Cisco Unified Computing System hardware.

This course will provide hands-on lab exercises utilizing Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) hardware. Students will perform hands-on lab exercises that were created to teach the necessary skills to install, configure, and deploy an OpenStack Cloud on Cisco UCS hardware.

To participate in the hands-on labs in this class, you need to bring a laptop computer with the following:

  • We recommend using at least a Pentium 4 or better and 1 GB of RAM or more.
  • We recommend running Windows XP Professional SP3 or greater (Vista & Windows 7/8).
  • Mac & Linux machines are also supported.
  • All PCs require Internet Explorer 7 or greater, Mozilla FireFox, or Google Chrome.
  • Note: When testing connectivity, Mozilla & Chrome may not be able to fully complete the tests as intended.
  • All students should have administrator rights to their PCs.
  • If you do not have administrator rights to your PC, you at least need permissions to download, install, and run Active-X controls in Internet Explorer or Cisco Any Connect Client.
  • If you are participating in a WebEx event, you should have internet access served by at least a 512K link, a full T1 Connection is recommended.
  • All PCs require the latest Java Runtime Environment, which can be downloaded from www.java.com.
  • We recommend a brief tutorial or familiarization with VI editor for Linux before class.
