Information Storage and Management v3

Learn how to make informed decisions on storage-related technologies in an increasingly complex IT environment.

GK# 4245

Course Overview

TOP

In this course, you will learn about the various storage infrastructure components in data center environments. You will leave this course knowing how to make informed decisions on storage-related technologies in an increasingly complex IT environment. You will learn about storage technologies, architectures, features, and benefits of intelligent storage systems including block-based, file-based, object-based, and unified storage; software-defined storage. This course takes an open-approach to describe all the concepts and technologies, which are further illustrated and reinforced with EMC-related product examples.
