Course Outline

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 system-independent data replication services to satisfy backup and disaster recovery requirements. Take advantage of storage efficiency solutions including automatic storage tiering, thin-provisioned volumes, and Real-time Compression.

Course Objectives
  • Create an implementation task list to integrate the SVC solution into the storage network fabric
  • Establish or update zoning policies to enable the SVC to control storage device access and facilitate storage provisioning to host servers
  • Utilize SVC user interfaces to manage the networked storage environment, assign storage to servers, migrate data, replicate data across storage systems, and monitor storage access activities
  • Assess issues related to coexistence between the SVC and native disk storage access across host servers
  • Migrate existing data to the virtualized SVC environment
  • Implement SVC storage efficiency solutions including Easy Tier, Thin Provisioning, Volume Mirroring, and Real-time Compression
  • Implement data replication services including FlashCopy and Remote Copy

This intermediate course is for:

  • Individuals who are assessing and/or planning to deploy storage network virtualization solutions
