BRA – Brocade 16 Gbps Advanced
4 days  (Instructor Led Online)  | 

Course Details

The Brocade 16 Gbps Advanced (BRA) accelerated theory-only course builds upon the Brocade 16 Gbps Fundamentals (BRF) and teaches students advanced FC SAN topics such as virtualization, Data Center Interconnect via native FC and native FCIP as well as interesting Traffic Engineering techniques for Brocade “Adaptive Networking” (QoS, Top Talker, TI-Zoning).

Other important topics deal with FC-FC Routing for more efficient and robust resource management within a SAN, Security features, and the popular Access Gateway mode. Finally, this course covers troubleshooting, performance, and monitoring techniques like Brocades D_Port, Bottleneck Monitoring, and PortLog Dumps. This hands-on class features a variety of practical lab exercises and is a great resource for anyone who needs a solid overview of advanced Brocade topics. For students looking for a consolidated and theory-only class, we recommend booking Brocade 16 Gbps Advanced Accelerated (BRAX).
