IT professionals responsible for configuring, deploying, and managing block- and file-based VNX storage systems in heterogeneous host environments.
Explore the key elements of SAN/IP-SAN and NAS deployment via practical experience with EMC VNX Unified Storage systems.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 Windows, Linux, and VMware 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, export, permissions, and quotas in Linux, VMware ESXi, and Windows environments Implementing local replications solutions An end-of-class assessment validates that you have learned the knowledge or skills presented.
