VNX Unified Storage Management

Course Duration : 40 Hrs


This Specialist-level course is targeted for storage/cloud infrastructure administrators requiring in depth knowledge and practical lab work with EMC VNX Unified Storage systems. This training covers all the key elements of VNX Block, File, and Unified deployments. It covers integrating VNX block access for open systems hosts (Linux, Windows and VMware ESXi) through FC, iSCSI and, FCoE, and VNX file level access for Windows and Linux user/application environments via NFS and CIFS. Lastly, the course also covers configuration of local replications solutions for VNX systems.


This course is intended for professionals responsible for the configuration, deployment, and management of VNX Block, File, and/or Unified storage systems in heterogeneous host environments.

Upon successful completion of this course, participants should be able to:
