Dell EMC PowerScale Disaster Recovery

( Duration: 2 Days )

The PowerScale Disaster Recovery training course is designed to provide advanced details about PowerScaledisaster recovery. The course provides the expertise necessary for an administrator to consider and plan for disasters. It mainly focuses on options and configurations to ensure PowerScale solution continuous availability and disaster recovery within well-defined RPO and RTO targets.

By attending PowerScale Disaster Recovery workshop, attendees will learn to:

  • Explain business continuance and disaster recovery
  • Discuss PowerScaledata protection
  • Understand PowerScale backup and replication options for various RPO and RTO goals
  • Perform a simulated failover and failback test in a lab environment
  • Review the dependencies for a functional PowerScale cluster and how third-party systemsneed DR plans as well

Understanding of:

  • PowerScale scale-out storage platform
  • Basic PowerScale cluster administration tasks
  • PowerScale hardware troubleshooting and maintenance procedures
  • Basic networking skills
  • Network protocols including TCP/IP, DNS, SMB, and NFS
  • Attend a training on PowerStore Implementation and Administration or equivalent practical experience

This course is intended for all audiences
