VNX Unified Storage Management

( Duration: 3 Days )

In VNX Unified Storage Management training course, Participants will learn to configure VNX file-level access for Microsoft Windows and Linux user/application environments via NFS and CIFS. Initial storage system configuration, security, and availability using Unisphere are also covered. NAS configurations, including networking, file system creation and export in Microsoft Windows, UNIX, and VMware ESXi environments are explored. You will also learn how to configure and manage file-based local replications solutions.

By attending VNX Unified Storage Management workshop, Participants will learn 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 networking for VNX file-level access
  • Configure VNX file systems
  • Export VNX file systems for NFS and CIFS access
  • Create and manage Virtual Data Movers
  • Configure and manager VNX local replication solutions – SnapView, VNX Snapshots, and SnapSure

We strongly recommend that Participants have knowledge of and experience with:

  • VNX system architecture
  • EMC PowerPath operations
  • SAN configurations, including basic utilization of the software tools used to manage the major Fibre Channel, FCoE, and Ethernet switch environments
  • TCP/IP networking
  • Ethernet switch configuration, including managed switch features such as VLANs
  • Ethernet settings, including duplex, throughput, and port channeling
  • Basic Microsoft Windows administration skills (managing users/groups, files, and directories)
