Course Details

In this course, you will gain thorough exposure to performance on the VNX Unified Storage platform. You will focus on the use of Unisphere Analyzer, Navisphere Secure CLI, and File server_stats to gather performance statistics from the VNX Unified, and the analysis of those performance statistics. You will also learn to gather performance statistics utilizing different workload patterns, RAID and disk types. You will cover in detail the performance implications of using Block Replication Software (SnapView, MirrorView and SAN Copy) and File-related Features (SnapSure, Data Deduplication, and Replicator). The course includes extensive hands-on labs and currently supports VNX Block OE R31.5 and File OE 7.0.35.
