Monitoring the IBM Elastic Storage Server (SSE11DG-WBT)

The IBM Elastic Storage Server (ESS) is a big data storage system that combines Power servers, storage enclosures, and disks along with IBM Spectrum Scale and IBM Spectrum Scale RAID technology, providing analytic and technical computing storage and data services.

This instructor-led course provides an overview of the IBM Elastic Storage Server. It reviews benefits, features for protection from data loss, storage terms, hardware components, software components, and network considerations.

The course details the monitoring tasks to manage the Elastic Storage Server environment including working with the command line interface, working with graphical user interface, and to manage both file systems and filesets. It also reviews data collection and contact procedures for IBM service and support.

The instructor was very good. He had a terrific temperament and never seemed to get tired. He was very patient with some of the participants and their lack of experience.

ExitCertified class worked well and provided good starting point for Architecting on AWS

Very good intro class. Nice to have a support staff available, even it not required.

J`aime l´environnement, la façon dont les labs sont organises. Sauf que je ne peux pas faire de click droit sur ces pages. Pour les labs çà aurait été utile.

Just finished up a course taught by Sean Mohseni. Excellent instructor. If you can find a course he's teaching, its well worth it.
