IBM Storwize V7000 Unified Implementation Workshop

IBM Storwize V7000 Unified Implementation Workshop Course Description

Duration: 4.00 days (32 hours)

IBM Storwize V7000 Unified is a virtualized storage system designed to consolidate block and file workloads into a single storage system for simplicity of management, reduced cost, highly scalable capacity, performance and high availability. IBM Storwize V7000 Unified Storage also offers improved efficiency and flexibility through built-in solid state drive (SSD) optimization, thin provisioning and non-disruptive migration of data from existing storage. The system can virtualize and reuse existing disk systems offering a greater potential return on investment.

The course will focus on planning and implementation of integrating the Storwize V7000 Unified system into a network environment. Both file and block level protocols will be covered with the focus on provisioning storage to network hosts via NFS, CIFS, HTTP and FTP. Included will be file management functions, including Information Lifecycle Management (ILM), tools for backup and antivirus functions, and system management.

This course covers the features unique to the Storwize V7000 Unified product but does not cover the features common to the Storwize V7000 and Storwize V7000 Unified products.
