VNX Block Storage Management (MR-1CP-VNXBSM)
This Specialist-level course is targeted for storage/cloud infrastructure administrators requiring in-depth knowledge and practical lab work with EMC
VNX Block-only Storage systems. It provides participants with detailed discussions on integrating VNX block access for open systems hosts (Microsoft Windows, Linux, and VMware ESXi) through FC, iSCSI and, FCoE connectivity options. Initial storage system configuration, security and availability using Unisphere are also covered. Lastly, the course will cover configuration and management of VNX block local replications solutions.
This course is intended for information technology professionals responsible for the configuration, deployment and management of block-based VNX storage systems in heterogeneous host environments.
To understand the content and successfully complete this course, a student should have knowledge and skills associated with the following:
-VNX system architecture
-EMC PowerPath operations
-SAN configurations, including basic utilization of the software tools used to manage the Fibre Channel, FCoE and Ethernet switch environments
-Basic VMware ESX/ESXi operations and management.
Upon successful completion of this course, participants should be able to:
-Implement Unisphere security
-Provision and manage host access to block storage
-Perform basic host integration tasks for block storage
-Integrate Microsoft Windows, Linux, and ESXi hosts to VNX block storage
-Configure and manage advanced storage features such as FAST VP and FAST Cache
-Configure and manage VNX block?based local replication solutions?SnapView and VNX Snapshots.
