Information Storage and Management (ISM) is the only course of its kind to fill the knowledge gap in understanding varied components of information storage infrastructure in classic and virtual environments. It provides a comprehensive learning on storage technology, which will enable you to make more informed decisions in an increasingly complex IT environment. It builds a strong understanding of underlying storage technologies and prepares you to learn advanced concepts, technologies and products. You will learn about the architectures, features, and benefits of intelligent storage systems; storage networking technologies such as FC-SAN, IP-SAN, NAS, object-based and unified storage; business continuity solutions such as backup and replication; the increasingly critical area of information security and management, and the emerging field of cloud computing.
