And understand the basic concepts of open systems disk storage systems and I/O operations
Individuals who are assessing and/or planning to deploy storage network virtualization solutions
Leverage networked storage connectivity by integrating a layer of intelligence - the SAN Volume Controller (SVC) - to facilitate storage application data access independence from storage management functions and requirements. Focus on planning and implementation tasks associated with integrating the SVC into the storage area network. Centralize storage provisioning to host servers from common storage pools. Facilitate the coexistence and migration of data from non-virtualized to the virtualized environment. Utilize network-level storage subsystem-independent data replication services to satisfy backup and disaster recovery requirements. This course offering is at the SVC V6 level.
