VNX Unified Storage Management

Course Details

This Specialist-level course is targeted for storage/cloud infrastructure administrators requiring in-depth knowledge and practical lab work with EMC VNX Unified Storage systems. This intensive training covers all the key elements of SAN/IP-SAN (block access) and NAS (file access) deployment.

You will cover a wide range of topics in detail, and you'll participate in hands-on lab exercises that reinforce the concepts, including:

Integrating VNX block access for open systems hosts (Linux, Windows, and VMware ESXi) through FC, iSCSI, and FCoE connectivity options Configuring VNX file-level access for Microsoft Windows and Linux, user/application environments via network file system (NFS) and common Internet file system (CIFS) environments Initial storage system configuration, security, and availability using Unisphere NAS configurations, including file system creation and export in Linux, VMware ESXi, and Microsoft Windows environments Implementing local replications solutions

The course covers a wide range of topics in detail, and includes hands-on lab exercises that reinforce the concepts covered in lectures. It is strongly recommended that only participants with the necessary prerequisite skill set attend this course.
