This course provides the knowledge required for architecting, deploying and managing Symmetrix-based local and remote replication solutions for business continuity needs. Operational details and implementation considerations for EMC TimeFinder, SRDF and Open Replicator are covered in detail. Hands-on lab exercises using Symmetrix Command Line Interface (SYMCLI) provide the opportunity to learn and validate the material covered in the lectures. Lab exercises will be performed on Open Systems hosts (IBM/AIX, HP-UX, Sun Solaris with Veritas Volume Manager and Windows 2003) attached to Symmetrix VMax series arrays with Enginuity 5874, via switched fabrics. An overview of managing the replication environment using the graphical user interface (GUI), Symmetrix Management Console (SMC) is also covered.
