H005G - IBM Spectrum Scale Basic Administration for Linux

Course Eligible for IBM Digital Badge

This course is intended for IT professionals tasked with administering an IBM Spectrum Scale storage cluster in environments running Linux and AIX nodes. The course includes information on installing, configuring, and monitoring an IBM Spectrum Scale cluster. Many Spectrum Scale features are described in lecture materials and then implemented in lab exercises. These features include: Storage management, high availability options, cluster management, and information lifecycle management (ILM) tools.

Note: Although the lab environment is running the Linux operating system, the differences in Spectrum Scale compared with an AIX environment are minor. Therefore, the skills acquired during the course can be applied in both Linux and AIX environments.

Darwin was very articulate and willing to work with us on questions we had outside of the course material.

I both teach and attend classes and it is human nature to be critical of how others do the same job. Edwin is an amazing instructor who kept us engaged, and happily answered all questions that came his way. Went out of his way to clarify concepts that could easily trip up newcomers.

Ray did an outstanding job. Very much appreciated his knowledge and technique.

The course was simple and easy to understand. The teaching instructor was very interactive and engaging in the course. A lot of tips were given apart from the course lecture.

The materials are very good and I think they will have lasting value to me in my administration of Spectrum Scale.
