Hitachi Enterprise In-System and TrueCopy Remote Replications (CSI0147)

This 5 day instructor-led course provides information on in-depth specifications, operations, and troubleshooting of Hitachi In-System Heterogeneous Replication and Hitachi TrueCopy Heterogeneous Remote Replication. In-System Replication software includes Hitachi ShadowImage, Hitachi Copy-on-Write (CoW) Snapshot, and Hitachi Thin Image.

Emphasis is placed on managing replications with Command Control Interface (CCI) software. Additional material covers Hitachi High Availability Manager, data transport methods, planning and implementing data protection configurations, basic Three Data Center configurations, and Hitachi Replication Manager features.

The classroom sessions are supported by lab exercises. You will practice using Hitachi Storage Navigator and RAID Manager CCI, and RAIDCOM commands to build several In-System and Remote Replication configurations.
