The Veritas InfoScale Storage 7.3.1 for Windows: Administration course is designed for IT professionals tasked with installing, configuring, and maintaining Veritas InfoScale Storage.
This training provides fundamental concepts and operational procedures for Veritas InfoScale Storage for Windows. The course enables you to gain the necessary skills that are required to manage a disparate range of storage. It also enables you to deploy and configure InfoScale Storage in your environment and to explore InfoScale Storage as a robust and scalable storage management solution.
By the completion of this course, you will be able to:
Install InfoScale Enterprise (Availability and Storage).
Identify the virtual objects that are created by InfoScale Storage to manage data storage.
Define InfoScale Storage RAID levels and identify virtual storage layout types used by InfoScale Storage.
Initialize an operating system disk as an InfoScale Storage disk and create disks and disk groups.
Identify the features, advantages, and disadvantages of volume layouts supported by InfoScale Storage.
Create concatenated, striped, and mirrored volumes by using the VEA and the command-line interfaces.
Create partitions and logical drives.
Add a mirror to and remove a mirror from an existing volume, add a log, and change the volume read policy.
Deport a disk group from one system and import it on another system.
Describe common offline and off-host processing tasks.
Duplicate the contents of volumes by using volume snapshots.
Manage the performance of off-host processing tasks by enabling FastResync and Fast File Resync.
Implement off-host processing by combining FastResync, snapshots, and disk group split and join functionality.
Describe mirror resynchronization processes.
Manage the configuration backup and restore process.
Manage the hot relocation process at the host level.
Manage arrays and individual disks and configure paths to disks in a DMP configuration.
Configure load balancing settings.
Describe the SmartIO feature in InfoScale Storage and for caching on SSDs.
This course is for system administrators, system engineers, technical support personnel, network/SAN administrators, and systems integration/development staff, who will be installing, operating, managing, and working with InfoScale Storage.
Knowledge of and hands-on experience with Microsoft Windows operating system administration is required. Working knowledge of networking is also required.
