Implementing Data Center Application Services (CI-DCASI)

Course Overview
Implementing Data Center Application Services (DCASI) v2.0 teaches learners how to implement a Cisco Data Center Application Services solution by deploying the Cisco Application Control Engine (ACE) service module, Cisco ACE appliance, and GSS. This course covers implementation of all of the key Cisco ACE features, including virtualization and role-based access control (RBAC), server load balancing (Layers 3 and 4 and Layers 5 to 7), Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) termination and offload, security features including application-layer inspection, web application acceleration and optimization using the Cisco ACE Appliance. It also covers the Cisco ACE Global Site Selector (GSS) implementation of global server load balancing (GSLB).
