Featured! This is a must for a Crash Course on Cisco UCS. Also great refresher on UCS.

TECCOM-2001 – Cisco Unified Computing System

Have to do a RealWorldUCS Shout Out for Chris Dunk who is one of the two presenters. Chris Dunk is a UCS Master. If you are new to UCS or want to ensure a complete foundation this is a must.

Craig Ashapa – Technical Marketing Engineer, Cisco
Chris Dunk – TME, Cisco

This all day session will focus on the products and technologies of the Unified Computing System along with connectivity to LAN and SAN networks. The attendees will not be required to be experts on UCS but should be highly interested in learning the core technologies leveraged within the Cisco Unified Computing System and how it supports a highly dynamic and programmatic control of the Compute, LAN, and SAN infrastructure. This session will begin with an introduction of the UCS components and features to bring the Network engineer, Storage admin, and Server admin up to the latest knowledge of hardware and technologies available with UCS. We will continue with configuration deployment best practices and protocol operations of connected compute, LAN and storage. We will also discuss design best practices for deployment and application uses, including a review of pertinent security topics inherent to a converged system. This session then wraps up with Management and troubleshooting methods for the new and advanced uses of the UCS, from XML to CLI navigation. This session will include live demonstrations on UCS throughout the day to enhance the learning experience.
