Course Overview

Course Duration : 5 Days

This course provides the knowledge required to deploy and manage Symmetrix VMAX 1/2 -based local and remote replication solutions for business continuity needs. Operational details and implementation considerations for EMC TimeFinder, SRDF and Open Replicator are covered. Lessons include considerations for and performing local and remote replication operations in physical and virtualized environments. Hands-on lab exercises using Symmetrix Command Line Interface (SYMCLI) and Unisphere for VMAX provide the opportunity to learn and validate the material covered in the lectures. Lab exercises will be performed in physical (Sun Solaris and Windows 2008) and virtualized (VMware ESXi) environments. Servers will be SAN attached to Symmetrix VMAX 1/2 series arrays.

Who Should Attend

EMC Personnel, EMC Partners and EMC Customers who will be involved in implementing and managing local and remote replication solutions for Business Continuity using TimeFinder, SRDF and Open Replicator in an Open Systems environment.
