This course covers SAN management activities centered on Connectrix B-Series and MDS-Series Switches. The Connectrix family of switches are managed to provide connectivity between various hosts and EMC storage arrays. SAN switches are administered through their CLI and GUI management tools for configuration in single and multi-switch fabrics. The course focuses on Fibre Channel technology and SAN virtualization concepts but also covers basic FCIP, iSCSI, and FCoE environments. NPIV, Access Gateway, and NPV configurations are covered. EMC SAN best practices are presented throughout the course and performance monitoring, basic troubleshooting, and security are also addressed.

Its really nice to have the snacks available everyday. The staff is courteous and professional.

The course material was good, the trainer was excellent. The course was timed well and the labs were great. I’d strongly encourage others to attend this course for preparation.

Course trainer was excellent, content was well organized. However, labs should be instructor lead versus on your own. Much time is wasted for newbees in getting acclimated to tool set, AWS environment, navigating and setting up things to complete tasks. This was my third class and I was barely able to finish most of the labs. (The first 2 classes I only finished one lab exercise for the 2 together.)

Well organized, but the training should have included lab times as well, labs won't be done during breaks.

Course material is good, trainer is good. Suggest to review course coverage vis-a-vis the training timeline. For this one it seems coverage is more for 2 days.
