VNX Unified Storage Performance Workshop
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 training covers all the key elements of SAN/IP-SAN (block access) and NAS (file access) deployment. It provides participants with detailed discussions on integrating VNX block access for open systems hosts (Linux, Microsoft Windows and VMware ESXi) through FC, iSCSI and, FCoE connectivity options. In addition, VNX file-level access will be configured for Microsoft Windows and Linux user/application environments via NFS and CIFS environments. Initial storage system configuration, security and availability using Unisphere are also covered. NAS configurations, including file system creation and export in Microsoft Windows, Unix, and VMware ESXi environments are explored. Lastly, the course will cover configuration and management of 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.
