The RecoverPoint Management course is designed for anyone who is responsible for the administration and management of a RecoverPoint environment. This course focuses on leveraging RecoverPoint technology to achieve and maintain application Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTO).
An integral part of the training addresses product architecture, management, and operations of RecoverPoint. There will be extensive lab demonstrations and lecture which will cover the following concepts: configuration requirements, the methods of Remote replication; the configuration of consistency groups and distributed consistency groups; how to configure them for integration with different virtualization software; and finally, the course addresses general monitoring and troubleshooting of RecoverPoint events. This course supports RecoverPoint version 4.1.
