Configuring Data Center Networks with Aruba OS CX (0001172987)

Základní info

The Configuring Data Center Networks with Aruba OS CX course provides the skills and knowledge to design, implement, and configure complex data center solutions based on the Aruba AOS CX switches. Data center networks are at a breaking point. Aruba 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. Aruba data center solutions and technologies such as Virtual Switching Extension (VSX) allow the grouping of data center switches for simpler management, but keep control and data planes separate for better high availability. Ethernet Virtual Private Networks (EVPN) allow the creation of modern two-layered data centers for business resilience and high availability. This course is approximately forty percent lecture and learning activities, and sixty percent lab activities.


This course is ideal for Aruba partners, customers and employees who have a minimum of 3 years of experience implementing and designing enterprise level networks.

Candidates should demonstrate an ability to understand, configure and implement modern data centers based on Aruba switching solutions that provide a simplified, scalable and automated Ethernet fabric that connects virtualized compute, storage, and cloud services.


It is strongly recommended that the candidate first complete the Configuring Aruba OS CX (Course ID: 01123901) course

Course Objectives

After you successfully complete this course, students should be able to:

  • Understand the components of the Aruba OS CX switching architecture
  • Describe common data center networking requirements
  • Describe the benefits of VSX implementation in a data Center
  • Understand, describe and configure VRF which enables a switch to run multiple routing instances in a network
  • Understand, describe and configure VXLAN functionality; VXLAN provides an alternative to the traditional VLAN concept
  • Understand, describe and configure EVPN to transport VXLAN thru the data center
  • Understand, describe and configure Data Center Bridging (DCB), a technology that enables the consolidation of IP-based LAN traffic and block-based storage traffic onto a single converged Ethernet network, helping 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 Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) which enables Ethernet ring topologies with a fast convergence
  • Describe requirements for a data center network design
  • Describe different data center deployment models
  • Understand various data center technologies and their impact on a design
