IBM-SAN-Training

IBM SAN Training Introduction:

IBM SAN Training is designed to bridge the knowledge gap between AIX/PowerVM education & Storage Management courses. The overall objective is to provide you a description of how AIX interacts with Fibre Channel storage devices. Along with this general view, we will look at common operational issues such as performance & problem solving from the perspective of an AIX administrator.

IBM SAN Online Training by Global Online Trainings is coordinated by best qualified professionals who are not only experienced they are known as industry experts with excellent exposure in completion of industry appraised projects in the same domain. Classes are available at individual level as well as for corporate batches on demand.
