I am new to this site,so have not checked the entire site,but cant seem to find anything about Data Centre.
There seems to be a mix of Data Centre terminology being used now in a routing and switching environment since big companies like i am working for, are hosting services in Data Centre.This puts me in a difficult position,my line of study had always been Routing and Switching,Now im feeling an urge for doing so many other Certifications along side which in real world for a working parent is not always easy.Can Rene put up a few tutorials for DC Architecture explaining the need for Fex or other such related terms.
Could you please confirm if there are any data center topologies topics going to be posted soon. I am looking for topics like VXLAN, BGP-EVPN etc.
It would be helpful if you could give us a current time frame by when these topics will be posted online.
Understanding R&S will definitely be helpful in understanding DC concepts. However there are some concepts for DC that are very useful and important to understand that are not included in R&S. This includes features such as VXLANs, Cisco Unified Fabric, Storage, SDN, and facilitating virtual machine deployments.
Currently, there is no lesson on BGP EVPN although it is simply mentioned in the Introduction to Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) lesson. However, if you like you can make a suggestion in the following member lesson ideas page. You may find that others have had similar requests, and you can add your voice to theirs:
In the meantime, take a look at the following Cisco guide on the topic:
