Course Description Schedule
 

Who should attend

This course is intended for information technology professionals responsible for the configuration, deployment, and management of VNX Block, File, and/or Unified storage systems in heterogeneous host environments.

Prerequisites

To understand the content and successfully complete this course, a student should have knowledge and skills associated with the following:

  • VNX system architecture
  • EMC PowerPath operations
  • SAN configurations, including basic utilization of the software tools used to manage the Fibre Channel, FCoE, and Ethernet switch environments
  • TCP/IP networking
  • Ethernet switch configuration, including management of switch features like VLANs, Ethernet settings, including duplex, throughput, and port channeling
  • Basic Microsoft Windows andUNIX administration skills (Managing users/groups, files and directories)
  • Basic VMware ESX/ESXi operations and management

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Implement Unisphere security
  • Provision and manage host access to block storage
  • Perform basic host integration tasks for block storage
  • Integrate Microsoft Windows, Linux, and ESXi hosts to VNX block storage
  • Configure and manage advanced storage features such as FAST VP and FAST Cache
  • Configure networking for VNX file-level access
  • Configure VNX file systems
  • Export VNX file systems for NFS and CIFS access
  • Create and manage Virtual Data Movers
  • Configure and manage VNX local replication solutions SnapView, VNX Snapshots, SnapSure

Course Content

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 beconfigured 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 filesystem creation and export in MicrosoftWindows, Unix, and VMware ESXi environments are explored. Lastly, the course will cover configuration and management of local replication solutions.

The content of this course are designed to support the course objectives.
