VNX Unified Storage Integration with VMware vSphere

In this course, you will have the opportunity to acquire hands-on experience integrating VNX unified storage systems with VMware vSphere ESX 5.0 servers. You will focus on the integration of the unified VNX storage system and VMware vSphere v5 virtualization platform. You will cover the configuration of data connectivity options, array and VMware management options, virtual machine storage provisioning, high availability components, management extension options, business continuance operations, and disaster recovery operations. This course supports the Proven Expert certification program. It is recommended that you complete all Proven Specialist requirements prior to attending this course.
