Managing HP 3PAR StoreServ II

Course overview:

This course covers Remote Copy, System Reporter, and Peer Motion. Additional topics include best practices: performance, cost, and high availability along with the new EVA to HP 3PAR Online Migration feature. Hands-on lab exercises help illustrate the concepts learned. The 2-day course is 50 percent lecture and 50 percent hands-on labs using HP 3PAR arrays. In some cases students will partner with other students for hands-on labs.

 

Course Objectives:

At the conclusion of this course you should be able to:

  • Understand the difference between Synchronous, Periodic Asynchronous, and Synchronous Long Distance (SLD) modes
  • Perform a failover of a Remote Copy Group (RCG)
  • Use Management Console 4.5 GUI and the CLI to manage Remote Copy
  • Use System Reporter quick reports, custom reports, and scheduled reports
  • Configure email alerts in System Reporter
  • Describe RAID impact on overall performance, cost, and availability
  • Understand the HP 3PAR caching algorithms
  • Use the CLI stat commands for troubleshooting HP 3PAR performance issues
  • Use the System Tuner capabilities
  • Administrate a Peer Motion configuration
