Building HP FlexFabric Data Centers (H8D03S)

Building HP FlexFabric Data Centers (H8D03S)

COURSE OVERVIEW

The Building HP FlexFabric Data Centers course provides you with the skills and knowledge to design, implement and configure complex data center solutions based on the HP FlexNetwork Architecture.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Data center networks are at a breaking point. HP FlexFabric offers a new architectural approach that provides simplified, scalable and automated connectivity for virtualized compute, storage and cloud.

Data center networking requirements have evolved rapidly, with emerging technologies increasingly focused on supporting more automation and simplified operations in virtualized data centers.

HP data center solutions and technologies such as Data Center Bridging (DCB) and HP Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF) allow for the grouping of several switches that are managed as a single virtual switch with a single IP address through switch virtualization. Ethernet Virtual Interconnect (EVI) allows for the connection of geographically dispersed data centers for business resilience and high availability.

For more information on the other technologies covered in this course, please go to the Objectives section.

PREREQUISITES

It is strongly recommended that the candidate first complete one of the ASE core courses, Architecting HP FlexNetwork Solutions (H8D04s) or Deploying HP FlexNetwork Core Technologies (HKD06s) and pass the associated exam. For specific prerequisites and requirements to achieve any of the related certifications, see the certification description on the HP ExpertOne website.

AUDIENCE

This course is ideal for HP partners, customer and employees who have a minimum of 3 years’ experience in implementing and designing enterprise level networks. Candidates should be able to demonstrate an ability to understand, configure and implement modern Data centers based on HP FlexFabric Data Center solutions, which provide a simplified, scalable, and automated Ethernet fabric that connects virtualized compute, storage, and cloud services.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

After completing this course, you should be able to do the following:

  • Understand the components of the HP FlexFabric network architecture
  • Describe common datacenter networking requirements
  • Understand, describe and configure Multitenant Device Context (MDC) that is a technology that can partition a physical device or an IRF fabric into multiple logical switches called “MDCs.”
  • Understand, describe and configure Multi-CE (MCE) which enables a switch to f unction as a Customer Edge (CE) device of multiple VPN instances in a BGP/MPLS VPN network, thus reducing network equipment investment
  • Understand, describe and configure MPLS L2VPN technologies which provide point-to-point connections through Martini, Kompella, CCC, SVC

  • Understand, describe and configure Datacenter Bridging (DCB) that is a technology that enables the consolidation of IP-based LAN traffic and block-based storage traffic onto a single converged Ethernet network. This can help to eliminate the need to build separate infrastructures for LAN systems that carry typical end-user data traffic, and SAN systems that carry storage specific communications
  • Understand, describe and configure the Ethernet Virtual Interconnect (EVI) protocol that extends Layer-2 networks across data centers via already available L3 routes instead of dark fibre
