Gain an in-depth exposure to EMC ControlCenter v6.1
This course is not currently offered by Global Knowledge. Information here is provided for reference only.
This specialization-level course provides a thorough exposure to EMC ControlCenter. You will cover managed objects, control data collection, and manage the detailed ControlCenter user security model. A significant amount of lecture and lab time is spent on allocating storage on Symmetrix and CLARiiON arrays, from creation and configuration of devices to masking devices to a host. You will also learn how to use ControlCenter to initiate and monitor Symmetrix local and remote data replication tasks. To make storage available to hosts, you will learn the SAN management tasks that can be performed with ControlCenter. You will get an overview of ControlCenter host management tasks, and you will cover automating tiered storage allocation tasks using Storage Provisioning Services.
ControlCenter has a variety of data center monitoring features. You will learn how to configure fault and threshold alerts and to use ControlCenter as an alert tracking and routing tool. Further investigating your environment, you will learn how to use StorageScope's reporting and querying features and how to use ControlCenter to collect and view performance measures.
This course presents ControlCenter's wide-ranging monitoring and management capabilities, but it does not provide background information on storage architecture, SAN management, or the other tasks you can perform with the product.
This course supports ControlCenter version 6.1 with update bundle 5.
