DescriptionWhat we offer

The IBM PureFlex System is a category of computing that integrates multiple server architectures, networking, chassis, storage, and system management capability into a single system that is easy to deploy and manage.

This fundamentals class covers IBM PureSystems, IBM PureFlex System, and the IBM Flex System Enterprise Chassis along with the IBM X-Architecture and IBM Power Systems compute nodes, systems management, networking, and IBM Flex System V7000. Included are hands-on lab exercises to reinforce the learning principles associated with the Chassis Management Module, X-Architecture and Power Systems compute nodes, Flex System Manager, networking, and Flex System V7000.

Also included are hands-on exercises that reinforce some of the steps outlined in the foundation services for IBM PureFlex Intro and IBM PureFlex Virtualization service offerings.

ObjectivesWhat you learn

  • Differentiate between IBM PureSystems and IBM PureFlex System
  • Summarize the features and functions of the IBM Flex System Enterprise Chassis
  • Differentiate the characteristics of the IBM Flex System x86 Compute Nodes from other IBM System x servers
  • Differentiate the characteristics of the IBM Flex System Power Systems Compute Nodes from other IBM Power Systems servers
  • Select the proper IBM Flex System networking components based on the solution requirements
  • Classify the IBM Flex System management options
  • Critique the storage options available for the IBM Flex System
  • Recall the foundation services performed for IBM PureFlex Intro and IBM PureFlex Virtualization service offerings
  • Carry out initial quick start configuration steps for the IBM Flex System Chassis Management Module and the Flex System Manager
  • Carry out configuration steps to zone, map volumes, and manage the IBM Flex System V7000 Storage Node in the IBM PureFlex environment
  • Carry out configuration steps, such as IP addressing, zoning, VLANs, and other typical Ethernet settings, with the IBM Flex System
  • Carry out the installation and configuration steps necessary to create and manage a Power Systems virtual server
  • Recognize the features of the IBM Flex System Manager VMControl component
  • Execute an initial configuration of an X-Architecture compute node using server configuration patterns
  • Execute a deployment of a compute node image to an X-Architecture compute node
