Enterprise Storage Networking

Enterprise Storage Networking


Course Overview

Course Duration : 5 Days

The Enterprise Storage Networking Design (ESND) course educates participants about considerations and practices to design storage networking solution for classic and virtualized data center environments. The course also focuses on design practices for storage, compute, and replication solutions. It takes an ‘open’ approach focusing on technologies, concepts and practices rather than specific products. To provide context, the course utilizes best-of-breed EMC product examples and case studies. Upon completing this course, participants will have the knowledge to design more robust and efficient storage networking infrastructure for their organization, customers, and partners.


Course Objectives

You will learn design practices and considerations for storage networking projects and solutions (FC SAN, IP SAN, and FCoE) as well as design for storage, compute and replication in physical and virtual environments.
