This course provides the learner with an in-depth understanding of how to install, manage, monitor and maintain a VPLEX system. Operational aspects of a VPLEX Local, Metro, and Geo, using Unisphere for VPLEX and the VPLEX CLI, are covered. Implementing VPLEX into an existing environment and provisioning storage from both the local and remote clusters are topics for both lecture and labs. Distributed volumes and working with Consistency Groups are discussed and practiced. Basic Troubleshooting and monitoring VPLEX performance are discussed. This course covers version 5.2.
