Pre-Requisites

Experience working with Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2012 R2 in enterprise environments Knowledge of and experience with basic local storage concepts and technologies such as disk, volumes, and file systems

Lessons

Practice provisioning your storage requirements and meeting your high availability needs.

In this course, you will learn about traditional storage topologies such as direct-attached storage (DAS), network-attached storage (NAS), storage area betworks (SANs), and bus technologies such as Fibre Channel and iSCSI. The course also covers newer Windows Server technologies such as storage spaces, tiering, thin provisioning and data deduplication, and enhanced functionality to the Server Message Block (SMB) sharing protocol in Windows Server 2012 R2.

You will learn high availability and disaster recovery technologies such as live migration, storage migration, and Hyper-V Replica. In addition, it provides in-depth coverage of failover clustering, including a detailed implementation of failover clustering of Hyper-V using Scale-Out File Server.

Your course includes a twelve-month subscription to these exclusive benefits*:
  • 12 months of anytime access to your course labs and lab environment
  • 12 months of 24/7 access to mentoring via chat, email, and phone
  • 12 months of on-demand access to indexed, searchable recordings of your Virtual Classroom Live or Virtual Classroom Fit class
  • 12 months of unlimited retakes of your class
  • A six-month subscription to Professional Edge

Wasn’t as advanced as I thought it would be. There was an issue when the day my course was the first time they used a new platform.. from adobe to something called zoom; I had to call support line cause it stated our instructor wasn’t present. Thankfully I called cause everyone online was in the adobe virtual classroom waiting for what looked like a teacher who didn’t show up for class (IT didn’t get anything resolved until 10mins after start time). I felt like he was really getting hung up on very basic knowledge for the first half of the course (talking about how to create tabs and drag formulas as an example). I completed files a few times before he was done explaining. There was a scheduled fire drill for them (roughly 30mins)that also cut into our time, which wasn’t deducted from the hour lunch break or the two, fifteen min breaks. I also really wish he touched base more on the automating workbook functions portion which we barely did. I'm happy there were/are those study guides (learning videos) and exams to take on my own time that I hope after I've had the class are still available for me to learn from.

Everything was great, but the instructor wasted a lot of time talking about unrelated subjects (like demo-ing different programs, talking about other classes, and talks about how Excel/technology has changed) took up way too much time. The course could have been condensed or better focus would have been great
