This Specialist level course provides participants with an in-depth understanding of configuration tasks on PowerMax and VMAX family arrays. It also provides the knowledge required to deploy and manage PowerMax and VMAX family array-based local and remote replication solutions for business continuity needs. Key features and functions of the arrays are covered in detail. Topics include storage provisioning concepts, virtual provisioning, device creation and port management, and service level-based storage allocation to hosts. Operational details and implementation considerations for Dell EMC TimeFinder SnapVX and Symmetrix Remote Data Facility (SRDF) are covered. Participants will use Unisphere for PowerMax/VMAX and Solutions Enabler (SYMCLI) to manage configuration changes on the arrays. Hands-on lab exercises using Symmetrix Command Line Interface (SYMCLI) and Unisphere for PowerMax will be performed on Open Systems hosts attached to PowerMax and VMAX3 arrays.
Upon successful completion of this course, participants should be able to:
