VMAX All Flash and VMAX3 Business Continuity Management

COURSE OUTLINE:

Description

This specialist level course provides the knowledge required to deploy and manage VMAX All Flash and VMAX3 array-based local and remote replication solutions for business continuity needs. Operational details and implementation considerations for EMC TimeFinder SnapVX and Symmetrix Remote Data Facility (SRDF) are covered. Lessons include considerations for performing local and remote replication operations in physical and virtualized environments. Hands-on lab exercises using Symmetrix Command Line Interface (SYMCLI) and Unisphere for VMAX provide the opportunity to learn and validate the material covered in the lectures. Lab exercises are performed in physical (Sun Solaris and Windows 2008) and virtualized (VMware ESXi) hosts attached to VMAX3 arrays.

Audience

This course is for people who will be involved in implementing and managing local and remote replication solutions for business continuity using TimeFinder and SRDF in an Open Systems environment

Prerequisites

Windows and/or Unix operating systems; ability to utilize host-based GUI and/or command line interfaces to perform hands-on labs and VMware vSphere.
