Schaumburg, Ill. — Jan. 10
TrainSignal, a professional computer training firm, announced the release of its Implementing Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) Training course.
This latest Cisco training course is designed to prepare students for the Cisco Data Center Unified Computing Support Specialist exam. Cisco UCS requires an IT professional with a diversified background in server or network administration as well as virtualization, VMware in particular.
Cisco UCS is also the industry’s first converged data center platform, the company says, thus making a practiced knowledge of the system a valuable credential for experienced IT professionals.
UCS technology merges the capabilities of the data center and virtualization. Since it allows administrators to deploy servers much faster, demonstrated knowledge across vendors along with a certification in Cisco UCS is a marketable skill set.
Cisco UCS Training will cover core concepts:
• UCS Architecture and Components
• UCS Installation
• Configuring Connectivity
• Routine and Advanced Management
• Pools and Service Profiles
• On-Site Video Instruction w/ Cisco UCS Hardware Implementation Overview
The a UCS Platform Emulator can be downloaded and run using VMware software to provide an adequate lab environment, as opposed to a physical production lab which can amount to more than $100,000 in hardware. The lessons utilize both GUI and command-line to ensure full understanding of the concepts.
The Implementing Cisco Unified Computing System Training course contains 20 lessons in nearly 14 hours of video instruction. Students will receive three DVDs of video lessons. Each lesson is available in several formats, iPod Video, MP3 Audio, .WMV and high-quality AVI, allowing students to use course materials on a variety of devices.
