This course provides the knowledge required to deploy and manage SymmetrixVMAX 1/2 -based local and remote replication solutions for business continuity needs. Operational details and implementation considerations for EMC TimeFinder, SRDF and Open Replicator are covered. Lessons include considerations for and performing local and remote replication operations in physical and virtualized environments. Hands-on lab exercises using Symmetrix Command Line Interface (SYMCLI) and Unisphere for VMAX provide the opportunity to learn and validate the material covered in the lectures. Lab exerciseswill be performed in physical (Sun Solaris and Windows 2008) and virtualized (VMware ESXi) environments. Servers will be SAN attached to SymmetrixVMAX 1/2 series arrays.
