Information Storage and Management (ISM) is the only course of its kind to fill the knowledge gap in understanding varied components of information storage infrastructure in classic and virtual environments. It provides a comprehensive learning on storage technology, which will enable you to make more informed decisions in an increasingly complex IT environment. It builds a strong understanding of underlying storage technologies and prepares you to learn advanced concepts, technologies and products. You will learn about the architectures, features, and benefits of intelligent storage systems; storage networking technologies such as FC-SAN, IP-SAN, NAS, object-based and unified storage; business continuity solutions such as backup and replication; the increasingly critical area of Information Security and Management, and the emerging field of Cloud Computing. This unique, open course focuses on concepts and principles which are further illustrated and reinforced with EMC product examples.

Pre-requisite Knowledge/Skills

To understand the content and successfully complete this course, a participant must have a basic understanding of Computer Architecture, Operating Systems, Networking, and databases. Participants with experience in specific segments of Storage Infrastructure would also be able to fully assimilate the course material.

Course Objective

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

  • Evaluate storage architectures and key data center elements in classic, virtualized and cloud environments
  • Explain physical and logical components of a storage infrastructure including storage subsystems, RAID and intelligent storage systems
  • Describe storage networking technologies such as FCSAN, IP-SAN, FCoE, NAS and object-based, and unified storage
  • Understand and articulate business continuity solutions – backup and replications, along with archive for managing fixed content
  • Explain key characteristics, services, deployment models, and infrastructure components for a cloud computing
  • Describe information security requirements and solutions, and identify parameters for managing and monitoring storage infrastructure in classic, virtualized and cloud environments
