Bluemix Infrastructure Network Implementation

This course explores the network implementation of Bluemix Infrastructure (formerly Softlayer) Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). You will be introduced to how to connect to the cloud to take advantage of Bluemix Infrastructure’s capabilities. This approach will be offered through instructor-led instruction, active demonstrations, and use of hands-on labs. The course covers the specific features and tools related to ordering, configuration and deployment, as well as sharing techniques and best practices from hundreds of production environments.

  • Order, configure, deploy, and scale infrastructure to manage and tackle common network implementation issues.
  • Leverage Subject Matter Expert offered best practices, based on real client implementations and expert tips from production environments
  • Use the SoftLayer self-managed support structure and processes
  • Reach out to SoftLayer resources for information and help
  • More detailed objectives include:
  • Review design considerations for data center scalability
  • Evaluate perimeter firewall options and rules, considering the requirements based on a case study
  • After ordering a firewall from the customer portal, learn how to configure firewall objects and policies including Internet Protocol Security (IPsec), Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) rules
  • Differentiate between the types of secondary Internet Protocol (IP) addressing and compare secondary IP addressing, Virtual routing and forwarding (VRF), and Network Address Translation (NAT); distinguish between virtual networking from physical networking; and physical and virtual switches
  • Order IP addresses and assign secondary IP addresses
  • Support capacity growth by enabling intra-pod and inter-pod routing by configuring IP connectivity between virtual local area networks (VLANs) and between multiple PODs or data centers
  • Establish security zones and firewall rules to restrict traffic between VLANs and data centers using the Brocade vRouter 5400
  • Configure Network Address Translation (NAT) to allow custom IP ranges to access the SoftLayer shared network.
  • Reviewing the difference between source network address translation and destination network address translation (Source NAT and Destination NAT) and discussing where each are used
  • Explain and demonstrate how the VPN is configured on the FSA as well as the Vyatta. Comparing and contrasting the differences and similarities
  • Establish an Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) Virtual Private Network (VPN) between two data centers.
  • Configure local and global load balancing to provide performance required to meet unpredictable capacity demands using Citrix NetScaler
  • Local Load Balancing with NetScaler. Review available choices for scaling, set-up, back-up and considerations with other data centers
