Orchestrating Distributed Services with CX 10000 Series (ODSACX10KS)


Course Overview

This 2-day course teaches students how the Aruba CX 10000 Switch can improve data center network (DCN) security and performance. Students will learn why the CX 10000 Switch is unique and how its placement in the DCN will dynamically change the performance and security. Students will learn how and where to install the CX 10000 Switch. Through the Aruba Fabric Composer, students will create and configure their entire network, as well as create and apply policy, including micro-segmentation. Using AMD Pensando PSM, students will understand how it integrates with Aruba Fabric Composer and the CX Switch, and they will be able to monitor switches and policy performance.
