Cloud Storage and Virtualization in Data Centers | LINX.X416

The data center is the hub of information technology in today’s enterprises. The industry is trending toward software-defined data centers (SDDC) where the majority of infrastructure is virtualized and delivered “as a service.” Such software-configured, hyper-converged data centers allow IT professionals to meet the demands of scaling, performance, capacity and multi-tenancy. This course is an in-depth exploration of the technologies needed to overcome these challenges.

Among mentioning the legacy storage technologies like DAS, NAS & SAN in today’s data centers, the main focus is on network attached storage. It demystifies today’s storage technologies in flash, cloud, mobility, converged storage, software-defined storage, SDDC, and Internet Infrastructure. The course also covers the blueprint of cloud computing and the implementation of public, private and hybrid cloud storage.

By the end of the course, you will understand the essential storage and network virtualization technologies used in today’s data centers, as well as how to establish a baseline for performance, capacity and ROI.

Learning Outcomes
At the conclusion of the course, you should be able to

  • Evaluate the hybrid storage solution by integrating diverse storage technologies to optimize performance, capacity, and cost.
  • Classify various networking technologies including DAS, SAN, NAS, and hyper-converged technologies.
  • Explain the internet infrastructure within modern data centers, encompassing storage and network storage protocols such as FC, IP, and NVMe
  • Illustrate the functionality of storage consolidations and virtualization, and their ability to meet SLAs, RTOs, and RPOs requirements.
  • Demonstrate comprehension of storage multi-tenancy, containers, and dockers.
  • Analyze the trend of cloud storage and its impact on personal and corporate data migration to the cloud
Note(s): Registered students will be invited to join the NetApp Certified Storage Associate (NCSA) program, which grants them free access to additional online courses and online lab exercises that cover NetApp storage configurations. Students will also receive a voucher applicable toward the NCSA certification exam fee. Participation is optional.

Skills Needed: A basic technical understanding of networking and storage concepts and terminology.
