Description

In this course, you will learn about the various storage infrastructure components in data center environments. You will leave this course knowing how to make informed decisions on storage-related technologies in an increasingly complex IT environment. You will learn about storage technologies, architectures, features, and benefits of intelligent storage systems including block-based, file-based, object-based, and unified storage; software-defined storage. This course takes an open-approach to describe all the concepts and technologies, which are further illustrated and reinforced with EMC-related product examples.
