iPexpert currently has two different CCIE Data Center vRack topologies used throughout our various products and classes. Our Technology topology is used throughout our volume 1 DC workbook and during our classes as a student rack. Our Mock Lab topology is a full-scale rack similar to that of the actual CCIE Data Center lab exam.

All vouchers are the same cost, and can be interchanged between rack types for rental and reservations.

Not only is our hardware, software, and control panel interface the best available option for CCIE Data Center study, it is also supported 24x7 by an elite group of technical support representatives.

Remote Control Tools:

  • All routers and switches can be controlled via the web with our GUI remote control system.
  • You will not waste time on our racks... when you begin your session, your routers WILL BE set to the default (blank) setting.
  • Web GUI access to all devices allowing you to start / stop / and revert to clean configurations.
  • Each device can be power cycled by our RPC (Remote Power Control) system with a click of a button.
  • Single Page Login (no need to telnet to rack's terminal server). Login and begin using our online hardware instantly.
  • Session Management (view scheduled time and reschedule without human intervention)

Hardware Details:

Within our CCIE Data Center Technology racks, you will have access to the following devices / software:

  • Nexus 7010
    • 2 Non-Default VDCs
    • 8 each N7K-F132XP-15 Ports
    • 8 each N7K-M132XP-12L
  • 2 Nexus 5548 with Layer 3 module
    • Enhanced Layer 2 License
    • FCoE NPV License
    • Storage (Native FC) License
  • 2 Nexus 2248TP
  • 2 MDS9216i
    • SAN Extension over IP License
    • Enterprise Package License
  • 1 Fibre Channel JBODs
  • 2 UCSPE (Platform Emulators)
  • 1 UCS C200 M2 rack servers
    • Xeon X5670 2,93Ghz 6-cores
    • 48GB RAM
    • 2 450GB SAS 15k harddisks
    • UCS P81E VIC card

The 2 Nexus 7000 VDC's can be configured to simulate extended distribution topologies and the 'core switch' layer within the network.

Nexus 5548 will be used as a 'Aggregation' layer within the datacenter network. The Nexus 2k's can be configured as FEX for the Nexus 5000 and simulated Fabric Interconnects for the UCS series server. The VDC's are a major component in the network as the number of devices is limited and the connectivity is very much based on a best practice design.
