Storage and High Availability with Windows Server
In this course, you will learn about traditional storage topologies such as Direct Attached Storage (DAS), Network Attached Storage (NAS), Storage Area Networks (SANs), and bus technologies such as Fibre Channel and Internet SCSI (iSCSI). The course will also cover the latest innovations concerning disks, volumes and file systems as well as new technologies such as Storage Spaces, tiering, thin provisioning and Data Deduplication, and enhanced functionality to SMB and NFS sharing protocols in Windows Server 2012 R2.
The course will also cover high availability and disaster recovery technologies such as live migration, storage migration and Hyper-V Replica, as well as providing in-depth coverage of failover clustering including a detailed implementation of failover clustering of Hyper-V using Scale-Out File Server (SoFS).
The course also covers System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager and you will learn how to manage your storage infrastructure at scale by abstracting the physical storage fabric into manageable units that can be provisioned on an on-demand basis with minimal overhead by using private clouds. The course describes Microsoft Azure storage solutions and integrating your on-premise storage with cloud-based storage and disaster recovery solutions including StorSimple and Hyper-V Recovery Manager. The course covers implementing Network Load Balancing (NLB) and load balancing clusters.
The detailed hands-on labs and in-depth content will provide you with the knowledge and skills so you can meet and manage your continually growing and evolving storage and high availability needs with reduced overhead and cost.
