Description

The Cisco Virtualized Infrastructure Manager Deployment and Operations (DCCVIM) v1.0 is 3-day instructor-led or virtual instructor-led training that teaches you how to deploy and manage the Network Function Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI) platform, reducing user error and providing visualization deployment to manage multiple Cisco Virtualized Infrastructure Manger (VIM) pods from a single portal. Cisco VIM Unified Management is a hardware platform and hypervisor-independent solution that combines Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN).

This course teaches you how to deploy, operate, and maintain Day 0, Day 1, and Day 2 configurations on the Cisco VIM Unified Management release 3.0. You will be introduced to the hardware components used in the Cisco VIM Unified Management solution, and how to identify the OpenStack components and their functions. The course introduces the Cisco Virtualized Infrastructure Manager (CVIM) Monitor (MON) User Interface (UI) tools, and how to maintain and operate within that solution.

This course will help you construct and install the Cisco VIM Unified Management to streamline management of the NFVI platform, learn how to deploy, operate, and maintain Day 0, Day 1, and Day 2 configurations on the Cisco VIM Unified Management release 3.0 and introduce the hardware components used in the Cisco VIM Unified Management solution, and how to identify the OpenStack components and their functions.
