VNX Unified Storage Management


DURACIÓN: 40 Hours (5 días)

Precio: €1.923,00


This Specialist level course provides participants with hands on experience implementing the EMC VNX series storage systems in a Block (FC, iSCSI, FCoE) and File (NFS, pNFS, CIFS) environment. Initial array configuration, domain management, security and availability using Unisphere are covered in detail. SAN host attach and SAN configurations with Linux, Windows and VMware ESXi are covered. SAN configurations with Linux and Windows are covered in practical lab exercises. NAS configuration, file system creation, export, permissions, quotas, in Linux, VMware ESXi, and Windows environments using NFS, pNFS and CIFS protocols are explored, and detailed hands on lab exercises are available for Windows and Linux environments.


Upon successful completion of this course, participants should be able to:
• Implement security for VNX Unisphere
• Configure and/or verify VNX system configurations (SP networking, SP memory, SP cache, software revisions and NTP)
• Provision and manage RAID Groups, LUNs, Pools and Pool LUNs
• Manage host access to block-level storage
• Describe basic host integration components, tasks and concepts
• Integrate Windows hosts with VNX block-level storage
• Integrate Linux hosts with VNX block-level storage
• Describe an ESXi host integration with VNX block-level storage
• Describe VNX advance storage concepts (metaLUNs, LUN migration, FAST, data compression, FAST cache)
• Configure basic network setting for VNX Data Movers
• Create and manage file systems
• Implement NFS
• Describe basic Usermapper operations
• Create and configure Virtual Data Movers
• Implement CIFS
• Configure CIFS features
• Configure networking features on a Data Mover (EtherChannel, LACP, FSN, VLAN Tagging)
