This course covers NSX as a part of the software-defined data center, implementation, use cases, features, and functionality operating at Layer 2 through Layer 7 of the OSI model. Data center network architectures are examined to demonstrate how NSX intersects with and virtualizes functions of a Cisco-based infrastructure in spine-leaf and traditional core-aggregate-access architectures. Lecture and hands-on lab activities support your understanding of NSX features, functionality, and on-going management and control.
