Objectives Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives: Upon completing this lesson, the student will be able to describe the components of the Cisco MDS Series switch platform in order to select the appropriate components for the SAN environment. This ability includes being able to meet these objectives:
Virtualization is the best way to meet this challenge.
Data Center Virtualization Fundamentals brings together the comprehensive knowledge Cisco professionals need to apply virtualization throughout their data center environments. Leading data center expert Gustavo A.
Rather than focusing on a single product or technology, he explores product capabilities as interoperable design tools that can be combined and integrated with other solutions, including VMware vSphere. By doing so, you can deliver agile application provisioning without purchasing unnecessary infrastructure, and establish a strong foundation for new cloud computing and IT-as-a-service initiatives.
Throughout, Santana illuminates key theoretical concepts through realistic use cases, real-world designs, illustrative configuration examples, and verification outputs.
He has more than 15 years of data center experience, and has led and coordinated a team of specialized Cisco engineers in Brazil. A frequent speaker at Cisco and data center industry events, he blogs on data center virtualization at gustavoaasantana.
His grasp of virtualization technologies and ability to relate it in both technical and non-technical terms makes for compelling reading.
This is not your ordinary tech manual. Through use of relatable visual cues, Gustavo provides information that is easily recalled on the subject of virtualization, reaching across Subject Matter Expertise domains.
Whether you consider yourself well-versed or a novice on the topic, working in large or small environments, this work will provide a clear understanding of the diverse subject of virtualization. Apparently complex topics are demystified and the insertion of products, mechanisms, protocols and technologies in the overall Data Center Architecture is clearly explained, thus enabling you to achieve robust designs and successful deployments.Port numbers are assigned in various ways, based on three ranges: System Ports (), User Ports (), and the Dynamic and/or Private Ports (); the difference uses of these ranges is described in [RFC].
According to Section of [RFC], System Ports are assigned by the "IETF Review" or "IESG Approval" procedures. The Cisco MDS Family 18/4-Port Multiservice Module uses Cisco expertise and knowledge of IP networks to deliver outstanding SAN extension performance minimizing latency for disk and tape with FCIP acceleration features including FCIP write acceleration and FCIP tape write and read acceleration.
Introduction to Storage Area Networks July International Technical Support Organization SG Today's IP switches and routers even offer advanced features like compression, acceleration, clustering, failover, and multipathing; optimizing WAN bandwidth and maintaining IP SAN availability in the event of hardware problems.
• Aimed at those customers using the FCIP functionality to extend their SAN to multiple data centers • Ideal for customers implementing Disaster Recovery or Replication environments • FCIP Design Optimization • FCIP Tunnel Performance Optimization • Write and Tape Acceleration • InterVSAN Routing (IVR) over FCIP SAN Applications.
open-standard FCIP tunneling; optimizes WAN resource utilization for backup and replication by enabling hardware-based compression, hardware-based encryption, FCIP Write Acceleration, and FCIP Tape Acceleration; and preserves VSANs, IVR, advanced traffic management, and network security across remote connections.
