PureFlex Systems are fully integrated systems with unified management of compute, storage, networking, and virtualization resources that utilize built-in Patterns of Expertise based on IBM's decades of experience and thousands of client deployments. It is built on elements of the IBM Flex System. IBM Flex System includes compute, storage, systems management, and networking components. These components are pre-configured and pre-integrated.

This course has been written to teach everything from the basics of IBM switch administration to the most advanced features of networking in the market today. You will not only learn the traditional physical networking concepts like layer 2 and layer 3 features but also work with virtual networks using features like VMready and Virtual Fabric. You will also learn high availability features to make your networking infrastructure redundant and more fault tolerant. The course will also cover the networking configurations seen in the three editions of the PureFlex System offerings: Express, Standard, and Enterprise.
