In this course, you'll learn about key aspects of Fibre Channel, the communication protocol of the Storage Area Network. You'll examine how to bundle your Fibre Channel ports together in order to take advantage of the increased bandwidth and the redundancy that this delivers. Next, you'll explore the unique qualities of Fibre Channel and the very important switch fabric initialization process that must take place in the SAN. You'll move on to learn about how Virtual SANs in the Storage Area Network permit you to define logical groupings of devices that can assist with management and security. You'll learn how Fibre Channel over Ethernet permits the merging of the LAN and SAN, as well as the basics of Network File System and Network Attached Storage systems. Finally, you'll explore important concepts for monitoring and performing software upgrades on Cisco MDS devices. This course is one in a collection that helps prepare learners for the 350-601 Implementing Cisco Data Center Core Technologies (DCCOR) certification exam.
