Which feature is a feature of Cisco WAAS? TCP optimization
Traditionally, what has been the trend of cost over the lifetime of data center solution? OpEx steadily increases over time because of rising maintenance costs.
What is meant by data center virtualization? The consolidation of physical resources and deployment as logical devices.
What advantage does Cisco Catalyst 6500 Virtual Switching System (VSS) capability offer? A pair of Catalyst 6500 Series Switches can operate as a single logical switch.
How does Cisco differentiate from the competition within the VSAN environment? All switches can reside in a single physical fabric based on a single Cisco MDS switch.
Which product in the Cisco Nexus family is a software-only switch that resides on the server? Nexus 1000V
What are two benefits of unified fabric? Reduction of server adapters required for I/O Reduced cabling
Which feature allows Cisco storage networking solutions to operate with Brocade and legacy McData switches? Interoperability modes allow VSANs to be propagated from the Cisco MDS to other Fibre Channel devices.
Which activity occurs during the prepare phase of the Cisco Lifecycle Service model? A case workshop and architecture workshop are used to identify opportunities.
Which two are examples of application support services that can be deployed across the data center? Virtual Firewalls Load Balancing
What benefit does network-based virtualization bring to the overall virtualization strategy for the data center? Deploying multiple services contexts on the same hardware.
Which two ways do you position a Cisco data center solution when a customer has existing McData switches? Cisco Solutions have full connectivity with Brocade. Cisco Solutions allow VSANs to be extended to these switches.

How does Cisco differ from the competition in the VSAN environment? All switches reside in a single physical fabric based on a single Cisco MDS
You are interested in lowering your total cost of ownership for your small-scale SAN and data center edge applications. Which device would be the best to use in this scenario? Cisco MDS 9124
What two things can a business implement to achieve better utilization of IT resources? Embedded network intelligence. Consolidation of data center resources.
Presenting a data center solution involves interacting with a variety of decision makers. What type of information might an IT manager be most interested in hearing about? The greatly reduced number of points of management that result from consolidating resources.
What would a good response to offer a customer who claims that the implementation of a Cisco data center solution would put too much pressure on the capital budget? The ability to deploy and redeploy logical units of a single physical device across the data center cuts future capital expenditure and reduces operational expenses as well.
When outlining the potential financial savings from having virtualized network service modules, which statement would be a supportable statement to make? The savings will depend upon the requirements for each data center but can be as much as 80 percent on power and 30 units of rack space.
When explaining the advantage of choosing a Cisco solution instead of Brocade, what might be a good fact to mention? Cisco has the advantage of a highly scalable MDS architecture, while the architecture of Brocade has changed little since first generation devices.
What key decision maker is most likely to be interested in how the Cisco solution will impact utilization, CapEx, OpEx, and TCO? Director of IT
Your customer in the data center is anticipating cuts in both operational and capital budgets. At the same time, the customer is under pressure to improve end-to-end data center security. How can a Cisco sales professional help meet both requirements? Recommend purchasing the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series FWSM and the Cisco ACE Module or both to allow multiple virtual contexts of each to be deployed as required in the future, without requiring more hardware to be acquired (saving capital budget), with a single point of management and control (cutting operational costs).
What is the function of data center within an organization? To support enterprise applications by reducing operational overhead and centralizing resources.
What might you recommend to a customer who is interested in support for Network-Accelerated Serverless Backup (NASB)? Cisco MDS SSM module
What is the function of Cisco Data Mobility Manager? Fabric-based data migration.
Which product greatly improves server efficiency through both highly flexible traffic management and offloading CPU-intensive tasks? Cisco Application Control Engine Module
