A CiscoPress lançou a segunda edição do Livro NX-OS and Cisco Nexus Switching: Next-Generation Data Center Architectures, 2nd Edition, o qual é dedicado aos produtos Cisco que trabalham com virtualização, by VMware, e tecnologia FCoE.

Posso adiantar que Nexus + FCoE + VMware = solução parruda de virtualização 🙂 FCoE chega a 10Gb/s de tráfego. Dando rede e dados trafegando no mesmo cabo.

Abaixo, segue os tópicos que são abordados pelo livro:

  • Understand the NX-OS command line, virtualization features, and file system
  • Utilize the NX-OS comprehensive Layer 2/Layer 3 support: vPC, Spanning Tree Protocol, Cisco FabricPath, EIGRP, OSPF, BGP, HSRP, GLBP, and VRRP
  • Configure IP multicast with PIM, Auto-RP, and MSDP
  • Secure your network with CTS, SGTs, ACLs, CoPP, and DAI
  • Establish a trusted set of network devices with Cisco TrustSec
  • Maximize availability with ISSU, stateful process restart/switchover, and non-stop forwarding
  • Improve serviceability with SPAN, ERSPAN, configuration checkpoints/rollback, packet analysis, Smart Call Home, Python, and PoAP
  • Unify storage and Ethernet fabrics with FCoE, NPV, and NPIV
  • Take full advantage of Nexus 1000V in a virtualized environment
  • Achieve superior QoS with MQ CLI, queuing, and marking
  • Extend L2 networks across L3 infrastructure with Overlay Transport Virtualization (OTV)
  • Deliver on SLAs by integrating MPLS application components such as L3 VPNs, traffic engineering, QoS, and mVPN
  • Support mobility via the new Locator ID Separation Protocol (LISP)
  • Walk step-by-step through a realistic Nexus and NX-OS data center migration

Eu ainda não o encontrei para “consulta”. Quem o tiver, por favor, coloque-o nos comentários. Possuo a primeira edição e ela é excelente. 🙂
