About Course

This course is designed to leverage SAN storage connectivity by integrating a layer of intelligence of virtualization the IBM Storwize V7000 to facilitate storage application data access independence from storage management functions and requirements The focus is on planning and implementation tasks associated with integrating the Storwize V7000 into the storage area network It also explains how to Centralize storage provisioning to host servers from common storage pools using internal storage and SAN attached external heterogeneous storage Improve storage utilization effectiveness using Thin Provisioning and Real Time Compression Implement storage tiering and optimize solid state drives SSDs or flash systems usage with Easy Tier Facilitate the coexistence and migration of data from non virtualization to the virtualized environment Utilize network level storage subsystem independent data replication services to satisfy backup and disaster recovery requirements This course lecture offering is at the Storwize V7000 V7 6 level This intermediate course is for individuals who assess or plan to deploy the IBM Storwize V7000 and leverage storage network virtualization solutions After completing this course you should be able to Outline the benefits of implementing an Storwize V7000 storage virtualization solution Differentiate between the Storwize V7000 2076 524 control enclosure and the 2076 312 324 expansion enclosure models Outline the physical and logical requirements to integrate the Storwize V7000 system solution Implement the Storwize V7000 GUI and CLI system setup to configure the V7000 systems Summarize the symmetric virtualization process to convert physical storage into virtual storage resources Implement volume allocations and map volumes to SAN attached host systems Summarize the advanced system management strategies to maintain storage efficiency enhance storage performance and reliability Employ data migration strategies to the virtualized Storwize V7000 system environment Implement Copy Services strategies to managed Storwize V7000 system environment remotely Employ administration operations to maintain system ability You should have completed Introduction to Storage SS01G Storage Area Networking Fundamentals SN71G or equivalent knowledge You should Have a basic understanding of concepts associated with open systems disk storage systems and I O operations IBM Spectrum Protect Scale Systems Storage Storwize
