Module 4: Cloud Networking
This module starts with Lesson 7, "Describe Network Architectures for the Data Center," where you learn how cloud computing has raised serious challenges to data center networks and how during the past few years, several network architectures were developed to assuage them, including Cisco Unified Fabric, software-defined networking, and Cisco Application-Centric Infrastructure. Then Lesson 8, "Describe Infrastructure Virtualization," reviews how server virtualization has brought several changes to how data center networks should behave and scale. Cisco Nexus 1000V is introduced, along with new virtual networking technologies such as virtual network services, Virtual eXtensible LANs (VXLAN), and network containers.
