Managing HP 3PAR StoreServ I – 3 dagar

Pris: 18.400 sek

Course Overview

In this course, you will cover the 3PAR hardware and architecture, and gain insight into the constructs within the 3PAR array family. You will cover Management Console GUI and CLI, common provisioning groups, hosts and volume sets, thin provisioning, dynamic optimization, virtual copies, and virtual domains. The course is 50 percent lecture and 50 percent hands-on labs using HP 3PAR arrays.

Key Objectives

  • Numbering schemes for the HP 3PAR hardware components
  • Data flow and communication concepts in an HP 3PAR controller node
  • Use Management Console 4.3 GUI and CLI
  • Set up a common provisioning group (CPG) and manage alerts
  • Create a thin provisioned virtual volume (TPVV)
  • Use Autonomic Groups to simplify provisioning storage
  • Change volume RAID, availability, and service levels using dynamic optimization
  • Administer virtual volumes using the CLI and Management Console 4.3 GUI to manage space
  • Create a virtual copy volume (Snapshot)
  • Create, manage, and remove a virtual domain

TARGET Audience

HP 3PAR administrators who need training on specific concepts and best practices needed to administer the array
