SAN Infrastructure and Solutions (HH703S)

OVERVIEW

The SAN Infrastructure and Solutions training focuses on implementing HP Storage storage area networks (SANs) according to HP guidelines. This course is designed to provide you with the foundation needed to design, implement, and service a high-availability heterogeneous SAN.

SAN architecture is the overall design or structure of a storage area network solution. It includes one or more fabrics each of which has a topology. Fabric topology refers to the layout of switches that form a fabric.At the completion of this course, you should be able to implement a small heterogeneous HP StorageWorks Fibre Channel SAN using rules in the HP StorageWorks SAN Design Reference Guide. The SAN Design Reference Guide is available for download from: http://www.hp.com/go/sandesignguide

AUDIENCE

This course is intended for partners, customers and employees who provide installation and/or operational support assistance for HP Storage SANs.
