SNV1G | SAN Volume Controller (SVC) Planning and Implementation Workshop

SNV1G | SAN Volume Controller (SVC) Planning and Implementation Workshop



This course is designed to leverage SAN storage connectivity by integrating a layer of intelligence or virtualization, the SAN Volume Controller (SVC) to facilitate storage application data access independence from storage management functions and requirements. The focus is on planning and implementation tasks associated with integrating the SVC into the storage area network. It also explains how to:

Centralize storage provisioning to host servers from common storage pools.

Facilitate the coexistence and migration of data from non-virtualized to the virtualized environment.

Improve storage utilization effectiveness using Thin Provisioning and Real-time Compression

Implement storage tiering and optimize solid state drives (SSDs) or flash systems usage with Easy Tier

Utilize network-level storage subsystem-independent data replication services to satisfy backup and disaster recovery requirements



This lecture and exercise-based course is for individuals who are assessing and planning to deploy networked storage virtualization solutions.



You should complete:

Introduction to Storage Networking (SN700) or have equivalent experience and understand the basic concepts of open systems disk storage systems and I/O operations



Recognize the benefit of implementing a SAN Volume Control (SVC) storage virtualization

Differentiate between the SVC 2145-DH8 model and the previous generation SVC 2145 models

Create an implementation task list to integrate the SVC system solution

Establish zoning policies to enable device access and facilitate storage provisioning between the SVC, native disk storage, and host servers

Utilize the SVC GUI and CLI commands to monitor, manage, and configure an SVC system environment

Assess issues related to coexistence between the SVC and native disk storage access across host servers

Migrate existing data to the virtualized SVC system environment

Implement SVC storage efficiency solutions including Easy Tier, Thin Provisioning, Volume Mirroring, and Real-time


Implement data replication services including FlashCopy and Remote
