Module DescriptionThis module provides a comprehensive understanding of the varied storage infrastructure components in classic and virtual environments. It enables participants to make informed decisions in an increasingly complex IT environment. It provides a strong understanding of underlying storage technologies and prepares participants for advanced concepts, technologies, and products. Participants will learn the architectures, features, and benefits of intelligent storage systems; storage networking technologies such as FC SAN, IP SAN, NAS, and object-based and unified storage; business continuity solutions such as backup and replication; the increasingly critical area of information security and management, and the emerging field of Cloud computing. This unique, open course focuses on concepts and principles which are further illustrated and reinforced with EMC product examples.
Module OutcomesUpon successful completion of this course, participants are able to: • evaluate storage architectures and key data center elements in classic, virtualized, and cloud environments • explain physical and logical components of a storage infrastructure including storage subsystems, RAID, and intelligent storage systems • describe storage networking technologies such as FC SAN, IP SAN, FCoE, NAS, and object-based and unified storage • articulate business continuity solutions—backup and replication, and archive for managing fixed content • describe information security requirements and solutions, and identify parameters for managing and monitoring storage infrastructure in classic, virtualized, and cloud environments
