Cisco Data Centre Unified Computing Design


The Cisco Data Center Unified Computing Design (DCUCD) course enables you to choose and design scalable, reliable, and intelligent data center unified computing and virtualisation solutions. These solutions are based on the Cisco data center product portfolio with a Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) as a centerpiece integrated with contemporary server virtualisation solutions (such as VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V R2, and Citrix for Cisco Virtualisation Experience Infrastructure [VXI]) and operating systems (such as Microsoft Windows and Linux).


Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:

  • evaluate the Cisco Unified Computing System solution design process in regards to the contemporary data center challenges, the Cisco Data Center Business Advantage architectural framework, and components
  • use the reconnaissance and analysis tools to assess computing solution performance  characteristics and requirements
  • describe the hardware components of the Cisco Unified Computing System and select proper hardware for a given set of requirements
  • describe the basic server deployment model of the Cisco Unified Computing System
  • propose a Cisco Unified Computing System solution management design for a given environment
  • describe the advanced Cisco UCS server deployment model
  • calculate the ROI and TCO for the solution by using the Cisco UCS ROI tool
  • design a migration plan for an existing implementation to a Cisco Unified                         Computing System solution.
