Description

The VersaStack solution by Cisco and IBM is an integrated infrastructure designed for cloud and enterprise application deployments. It combines the performance and innovation of the Cisco UCS Integrated Infrastructure with the versatility and efficiency of the IBM Storwize storage system. The VersaStack solution is backed by Cisco Validated Designs to provide a faster delivery of applications, greater IT efficiency, and less risk. Our new 5-day training is designed for system and network engineers and administrators implementing and administering VersaStack solutions. The course covers key implementation procedures, management and basic troubleshooting tasks on the Cisco Nexus 9300, Cisco MDS 9100, Cisco UCS, IBM Storwize V7000 Unified and Cisco Nexus 1000V.
