Enterprise data is growing exponentially. This data explosion is making commonly accepted practices of data management inadequate. Social, mobile, cloud, big data, and analytics are driving an explosion in data volumes and causing new challenges for data protection, disaster recovery, regulatory requirements, and standards for compliance. Data management has become one of the highest priorities of organizations today. 

The IBM FlashSystem products are designed to help companies improve performance and reduce server sprawl, power consumption, cooling, and floor space requirements. All of this in turn can help clients save money, improve performance, and invest more in innovation. The IBM FlashSystem family can help you take control of your storage, harness existing data, and manage your IT infrastructure in a much more cloud-like fashion. This course will aim to provide the basics of flash storage systems, specifically IBM- s portfolio in this area.

Joel Rosenblum is an excellent instructor. Would gladly take more courses he taught. Extremely knowledgeable with the content and real world experience with the tech. Gotcha issues provided by him to look for in tech were very useful. Very friendly and available during and after class time.

Tom Peters was very helpful initially and once voucher was confirmed valid. Tom P required Kyle Banas to approve my voucher that was earned for selling certain quantity of M365 licenses. Request confirmation voucher was valid less than 3 months from notification. Tom P CC'd Kyle B on email to confirm. Kyle to several weeks and MANY email requests without ever responding to request. Tom P eventually approved the voucher.

Content was excellent. Labs and lab environment was excellent.

This course gave me a clearer understanding of the AWS cloud architecture.

Tommy is clear and concise. Responded and knowledgeable. I wil recommend this to all

Awesome training and trainers! Clear, straight to the point and extremely knowledgeable...

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.)
