CompTIA Server+ 2009: Storage
Established IT professionals who wish to acquire job skills and to be trained specifically to pass the CompTIA Server+ 2009 certification exam
There are no prerequisites for this course. However, a Comptia A+ certificate is recommended.
Because so much work is done electronically, businesses and governments generate vast amounts of information, most of which needs to be kept available and safe. Storage technologies have improved with the growth of data requirements. This course introduces the technologies involved in storing and protecting this data and the different types of storage media, such as optical media, and describes the increased reliance on hard disks for permanent, secure data storage. As well, it discusses the technology behind RAID arrays and the various types of storage architectures.
The course maps to CompTIA’s Server+ exam, SK0-003, and covers the following exam objectives: 3.1 Describe RAID technologies and its features and benefits; 3.2 Given a scenario, select the appropriate RAID level; 3.3 Install and configure different internal storage technologies; and 3.4 Summarize the purpose of external storage technologies.
