The major trend in a datacenter networking is currently centrally managed network, fulfilling all the requirements of modern applications – from a huge data throughput, simple scalability, enhanced security for any attached endpoint and their microsegmentation, to automation of deployed network policies across all datacenters. Such a solution is represented by Cisco Application Centric Infrasctucture (ACI), which is capable of managing not only the physical part of network, but also the virtual world of Kubernetes, in a form of mutual integration using ACI CNI plugin. Goal of this course is to describe main Kubernetes architecture for network-oriented IT engineers and a practically explain the advantage of its integration with Cisco ACI – securing the containerized workloads, detailed network visibility of individual containers (K8S PODs), or exposing a deployed application to the external users, while ACI itself can act as a hardware loadbalancer for them. This course contains one extensive practical lab, where each participant will have opportunity to deploy simple Kubernetes cluster, integrate it with ACI and ensure the connectivity and secure segmentation for multi-tier demo application.


2 days (8h/day)

Training format

As a standard, we implement a full-time course (onsite or ILT *) in the ALEF Training Center. Upon agreement, it is possible to implement the course at the client's premises. The course can also be implemented online (vILT **) via a video conferencing platform - Cisco Webex meetings. Instructor- led virtual training is a combination of the best of a traditional classroom course and interactive training without having to leave your own office or the comfort of your home. Convince yourself of top quality transmission, video calls and effective team collaboration.


  • ILT - Instructor Led-Training * - instructor-led training in the classroom. ** vILT (Virtual Instructor-Led Training) - this is a form of distance learning, where the instructor conducts training from the classroom through an online platform to which students connect from their offices or the comfort of their home.
