The IBM PureFlex System is a new category of computing that integrates multiple server architectures, networking, chassis, storage, and system management capability into a single system that is easy to deploy and manage.
This intermediate level, hands-on lab class builds on the X-Architecture compute nodes with an overview of IBM PureSystems and IBM PureFlex Systems to position the X-Architecture compute nodes within the product portfolio. A comprehensive deep-dive of the IBM Flex System X-Architecture compute nodes, their architecture, subsystems, I/O and systems management provide the foundation for this course, which is covered in the required prerequisite training. The hands-on lab exercises are to reinforce the learning principles by configuring an X-Architecture compute node including two new features of the IBM Flex System Manager: configuration patterns and compute node image deployment.
Enrollment in this intermediate course is not restricted. Typical students may include those persons involved with the planning, installation, configuration and upgrade of the IBM PureFlex Systems where X-Architecture Compute Nodes are involved. This may include:
You should have completed IBM PureFlex System Fundamentals (NGT11) or have equivalent skills.
