The storage area network (SAN) infrastructure facilitates storage consolidation, data sharing, server clustering, LAN-free and server-less backup across heterogeneous host server platforms. This course focuses on the planning and implementation considerations associated with establishing that SAN infrastructure. Functions provided by SAN fabric components, such as Fibre Channel host bus adapters (HBAs), Fibre Channel switches and directors, and SCSI to Fibre Channel protocol converters are discussed, and the interdependencies of these components are examined. Mechanisms to implement resource access control for data access integrity among heterogeneous hosts in a storage networking environment are also examined.
You should complete:
Introduction to Storage Networking (SN70GB)
or equivalent knowledge base is a must.
This course assumes that you understand a basic SAN knowledge.
This course is for personnel who are assessing and planning to deploy a storage area network.
Examine Fibre Channel services such as login processes, name server, addressing, loop initialization and arbitration, frame routing, and registered state change notification as they relate to configuring the SAN infrastructure
Plan for the implementation of SAN interconnect components, such as Fibre Channel HBAs, the IBM TotalStorage SAN switches and directors (b-type, m-type), and the Cisco directors and switches by reviewing their default configurations and assessing tailoring options
Plan for the Implementation of resource access control to ensure data integrity by using zoning interfaces in the IBM TotalStorage SAN switches and directors (b-type, m-type), and the Cisco MDS 9000 directors and switches
Interpret topology, routing, and trunking data displayed by switch management interfaces for a given fabric

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting
aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your
business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
