Symmetrix VMAX Business Continuity Management (MR-1CP-SYMBCMGMT)

This course provides the knowledge required to deploy and manage Symmetrix VMAX 1/2 -based local and remote replication solutions for business continuityneeds. Operational details and implementation considerations for EMC TimeFinder, SRDF and Open Replicator are covered. Lessons include considerations for and performing local and remote replication operations in physical and virtualized environments. Hands-on lab exercises using Symmetrix Command Line Interface (SYMCLI) and Unisphere for VMAX provide the opportunity to learn and validate the material covered in the lectures. Lab exercises will be performed in physical (Sun Solaris and Windows 2008) and virtualized (VMware ESXi) environments. Servers will be SAN attached to Symmetrix VMAX 1/2 series arrays

Audience :
EMC Personnel, EMC Partners and EMC Customers who will be involved in implementing and managing local and remote replication solutions for
Business Continuity using TimeFinder, SRDF and Open Replicator in an Open Systems environment.

Windows and/or Unix operating systems; ability to utilize host based GUI and/or command line interfaces to perform all hands-on labs
Symmetrix architecture, concepts, and theory of operations
TimeFinder, SRDF, and Open Replicator for Symmetrix Fundamentals
Symmetrix Configuration Management
VMware vSphere ESXi fundamental

Course Objectives
