Appendices note

One appendix in the student guide covers Recovery Manager. This will be covered time permitting and is generally regarded as 'read-only' material. There is no hands-on lab for this topic.


Course overview

This course covers Remote Copy, System Reporter (External and On-node), HP 3PAR Priority Optimization and QoS (Quality of Service), Peer Motion, and EVA to HP 3PAR Online Migration. Performance Monitoring is also addressed. Hands-on lab exercises help illustrate the concepts learned. The two-day course is 60 percent lecture and 40 percent hands-on labs using HP 3PAR arrays.


Prerequisites

  • Managing HP 3PAR Disk Arrays (HK902S) or equivalent knowledge

Audience

  • HP 3PAR administrators who desire introductory training on Remote Copy, System Reporter, and Storage Federation
