Course overview

This course provides additional knowledge of the advanced capabilities of HPE Nimble Storage arrays, including multiarray groups and pools, replication, disaster recovery, VMware® vVols, configuration of syslog and SNMP trap forwarding, and audit logs and event logs. Using extensive hands-on lab exercises that comprise over 70% of the course, you gain a practical understanding of HPE Nimble Storage integration with Microsoft Windows, Linux, VMware and Veeam.


Course objectives

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Review HPE Nimble Storage topics
  • Discuss and understand disaster terminology
  • Describe, configure and perform replication between groups for both planned and unplanned disaster recovery scenarios
  • Discuss peer persistence
  • Discuss and perform advanced administration features, including volume performance settings, SNMP, deduplication, encryption, and more
  • Configure and manage multi-member groups, storage pools and discuss scale-up and scale-out guidelines and requirements
  • Configure and perform volume moves between pools, and volume striping in a multi-member pool
  • Discuss network considerations, networking best practices and scenarios for HPE Nimble Storage
  • Describe integrations with Windows, Linux, VMware and Veeam


Prior to attending this course, students should complete one of the following courses:

  • HJ7C5S: HPE Nimble I: Management and Local Replication
  • H6LH8S: HPE Nimble Storage Introduction and Administration
  • H9TH5S: HPE Nimble Storage Introduction and Administration (with extended lab time)
  • H9TH6AAE: Introduction to HPE Nimble Storage and InfoSight Analytics, Rev. 18.41
  • H9TH1S: Designing HPE Nimble Solutions, Rev. 18.21 (01113228)
