HK902 Managing HPE 3PAR StoreServ I

3 days


This 3 day course overviews 3PAR hardware and architecture along with giving administrators insight in to the constructs within the 3PAR array family. Students will explore Virtual Volumes and Thin Provisioning along with performing other administrative tasks via both GUI and CLI methods. The class discusses local and remote data copies along with reporting, scheduling and space management. Remote hands-on lab exercises will help illustrate the concepts learned during the course


HP 3PAR administrators who desire training on specific concepts and best practices to gain the knowledge necessary to perform day-to-day administration functions on an HP 3PAR array

Thinking about Onsite?

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.
