TS617G IBM SPECTRUM PROTECT VERSION 8.1.6 IMPLEMENTATION AND ADMINISTRATION

IBM Spectrum Protect 8.1.6 is a data backup and recovery solution designed to help you manage your data retention, reduce the cost of storage, and provide appropriate recovery point objectives to meet any service level agreement. IBM Spectrum Protect offers improved efficiency and flexibility using object-based data management and policy driven retention.

This five day course will focus on implementation and basic administration of a IBM Spectrum Protect environment. The hands-on lab exercises are performed on a Windows 2012 environment. The course materials include examples of AIX and Linux commands, when different from Windows.

SNV1G SAN VOLUME CONTROLLER (SVC) PLANNING AND IMPLEMENTATION WORKSHOP

This course is designed to leverage SAN storage connectivity by integrating a layer of intelligence or virtualization, the SAN Volume Controller (SVC) to facilitate storage application data access independence from storage management functions and requirements. The focus is on planning and implementation tasks associated with integrating the SVC into the storage area network. It also explains how to:Centralize storage provisioning to host servers from common storage pools.

  • Facilitate the coexistence and migration of data from non-virtualized to the virtualized environment.
  • Improve storage utilization effectiveness using Thin Provisioning and Real-time Compression.
  • Implement storage tiering and optimize solid state drives (SSDs) or flash systems usage with Easy Tier.
  • Utilize network-level storage subsystem-independent data replication services to satisfy backup and disaster recovery requirements.

TS626G IBM SPECTRUM PROTECT 8.1.4 ADVANCED ADMINISTRATION, TUNING, AND TROUBLESHOOTING

IBM Spectrum Protect, formerly known as IBM Tivoli Storage Manager, is a data backup and recovery solution designed to help you manage your data retention, reduce the cost of storage, and provide appropriate recovery point objectives to meet any service level agreement. IBM Spectrum Protect offers improved efficiency and flexibility through the use of object-based data management, policy driven retention, and an easy to use interface, the Operations Center.

In this advanced-level course, you streamline your daily operations by implementing the latest features, such as inline data deduplication using storage containers, secure communications, and node replication. You use the Operations Center and administrative command line to manage multiple IBM Spectrum Protect servers and nodes. The hands-on exercises are performed on two Windows 2012 R2 virtual machines.

This course is the second in a two-course series. It is for storage administrators familiar with the daily management of IBM Spectrum Protect, and focuses on the latest features, such as container pool storage. Basic concepts and installation are not covered in this course.

TS616G, the first course in the series, IBM Spectrum Protect 8.1.2 Implementation and Administration, covers basic administration and installation.
