Power Systems for AIX III: Virtualization - Implementing Shared Storage Pools Global Knowledge Egypt

This course will provide the implementation and management skills to create VIOS shared storage pools. This is the term that refers to creating VIOS clusters or storage groups, and using a shared storage pool to provision client storage. You will learn to create the VIOS cluster, manage storage in the shared storage pool, provision storage to client LPARs either using thick or thin provisioning, and manage the VIOS installation by learning how to do backups, restores, and software upgrades.

The course is also offered in a live virtual classroom environment (ILO - Instructor Led Online), Power Systems for AIX III: Virtualization - Implementing Shared Storage Pools (ILO) (AX320GB).

Target Audience:

This advanced course is for anyone responsible for implementing and managing virtualization features on a System p server including: AIX technical support inpiduals System administrators Systems engineers System architects
