DescriptionWhat we offer

This course is designed to present the IBM XIV Storage System, including its hardware components and cabling concepts. This course also provides information on how to prepare, install, configure, and initialize the IBM XIV Storage System. It describes the steps to follow for the configuration of an IBM XIV Storage System and provides information about setting up, installing, configuring, and working with the three features that assist with Copy Services: snapshot, volume copy, and remote mirror. This course describes the specifications, features, and components for the server operating systems that can be associated to the IBM XIV Storage System. This course covers also data migration concepts. Students will learn how to plan, configure, and perform an XIV data migration.

This course incorporates lecture material and simulated labs to provide you with an overview of XIV storage systems.

ObjectivesWhat you learn
