Advanced SAN Implementation (MR-1CP-NSMPIMP)

Overview:This course focuses on advanced fabric configurations and multiprotocol implementations such as FC, iSCSI, FCIP and FCoE. The class covers Virtual fabrics and SANs, Heterogeneous fabrics and migration, routing, Boot from SAN, Native iSCSI and FC security. The course also covers SAN extension implementations including FCIP, Port virtualization (NPV/NPIV), Converged networking and FCoE. The course features hands-on labs where the student will configure each of the covered subjects and harden the environment with various security options.

Prerequisites:
SAN Management
Host to Storage SAN Implementation
Connectivity Protocols
Connectrix MDS-Series Architecture and Management  overview
Connectrix B-Series Architecture and Management overview

Course Objectives:

Upon successful completion of this course, participants should be able to:
Identify advanced Fibre Channel concepts and requirements for fabric configuration
Describe start to end configuration of an integrated fabric
List the steps to migrate between a B-Series and a MDS-Series fabric
Perform Fibre Channel and iSCSI Boot from SAN
Configure Routing in a Fibre Channel environment
Identify and configure virtualization features on a Fibre Channel switch
Configure FCIP in a Fibre Channel environment
Configure a FCOE environment

Duration:5 Days
