Cisco HyperFlex 360 Technical Workshop
Date: Thursday, January 24
Time: 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM (EST)
Location: Tech Data Advanced Technology Solution Centre
Mississauga, ON

Cisco HyperFlex vSphere Data Platform (HX) is a hyperconverged software appliance
that transforms Cisco servers into a single pool of compute and storage
resources. It eliminates the need for network storage and enables seamless
interoperability between computing and storage in virtual environments.

The HX Data Platform provides a highly fault-tolerant distributed storage system
that preserves data integrity and optimizes performance for virtual machine
(VM) storage workloads. In addition, native compression and deduplication
reduce storage space occupied by the VMs and VM workloads.

HX has many integrated components. These include: Cisco Fabric Interconnects
(FIs), Cisco UCS Manager, Cisco HX specific servers, and Cisco compute only
servers; VMware vSphere, ESXi servers, and vCentre; and the Cisco HX Data
Platform Installer, controller VMs, HX Connect, vSphere HX Data Platform
Plug-in, and stcli commands.

The focus of this hands-on lab is the basic installation and initial configuration
of a HyperFlex 3.0 vSphere cluster with hybrid nodes.

The main activities in this lab are: to:

  • Understand HX requirements
  • Configure UCS for HX
  • Deploy HX nodes
  • Perform post-installation activities

After completing this lab, you will meet the following objectives:
