Data Protection Techniques for Hitachi Modular Storage (CSI0157)

This 5 day course provides product fundamentals and tasks necessary to size and implement in-system and remote replication for the Hitachi Adaptable Modular Storage 2000 and Hitachi Unified Storage families of storage systems.

You will be introduced to the Hitachi ShadowImage and Copy-on-Write Snapshot local replication products and to the Hitachi TrueCopy and TrueCopy Extended Distance products, with details on software specifications and theory of operations. You will have the opportunity to install, configure, use, and troubleshoot the replication software applications in hands-on labs.
