This week I’m attending Cisco DCUCI course in Milan. I have no experience on blade servers or Cisco UC plaftorm and it’ll be a great opportunity to learn new topics and move another step towards the datacenter.

I’ve prepared for this course watching Cisco PEC videos and reading the two must-read books from Silvano Gai:

Cisco provides an emulator for the Cisco UCS , available only to Partners. Versions provided are 1.4 and 2.0 but since the exam is based on the older version, I’ll use 1.4 to prepare the related exam.

Sidenote: I’ve installed the emulator on my HP Microserver ¬†on ESXi 5.0, it works fine.
