Symmetrix Integration with VMware vSphere

( Duration: 5 Days )

In Symmetrix Integration with VMware vSphere Training course, Participants will acquire hands-on experience integrating EMC Symmetrix V-MAX storage systems with VMware vSphere vCenter and ESXi host. They will learn to provision, manage, migrate, replicate, and protect the VMware vSphere/Symmetrix V-MAX environment. They will also cover new integration technologies between VMware and EMC technologies, including storage pool management, Storage I/O Control, vStorage API for Array Integration (VAAI), EMC Virtual Storage Integrator (VSI), PowerPath/VE, and EMC SRDF technology.

By attending Symmetrix Integration with VMware vSphere workshop, Participants will learn to:

  • Prepare EMC Symmetrix V-MAX Storage system for VMware ESXi host
  • Install and configure EMC PowerPath/VE on ESXi for FC failure protection and load balancing
  • Install and configure an SMC Server (VM)
  • Deploy and configure an SMC virtual appliance
  • Install and configure EMC Virtual Storage Integrator for VMware vSphere: Storage Viewer, SPM, and PP/VE
  • Storage best practices for ESXi host in a Symmetrix V-Max environment
  • Provision storage from a Symmetrix V-Max to an ESXi host and to a virtual machine
  • Use Storage vMotion to migrate a virtual machine to Symmetrix V-Max storage
  • Provision storage to the ESXi host and to the virtual machine using EMC Storage Pool Management
  • Demonstrate VMware vStorage APIs for Array Integration (VAAI) features with Symmetrix-VMAX

This course is intended for any person who presently or plans to:

  • Support various Symmetrix storage, array management, and business continuance configurations with ESXi hosts
  • Administer IT or lab environments supported by Symmetrix storage and ESXi hosts
  • Participate in the development or qualification of Symmetrix hardware or software for ESXi hosts
