Course Details

The HPE 3PAR StoreServ 3.2.x New Features and Functions (H9P96S) is a one-day training course that reviews the HP 3PAR StoreServ OS 3.2.1 features. This course covers topics such as data deduplication in primary storage, a space reduction technique that identifies redundant/duplicate data in physical storage and maintains only a single copy of data for all the redundant copies. It also includes:

  • Adaptive Flash Cache, a flash memory-based caching solution which uses StoreServ’s SSD drives as cache storage;
  • File Persona, a file-level storage technology;
  • StoreServ Management Console (SSMC) v2, the newest graphical user interface for HP 3PAR array management.

  • Work with the StoreServ Management Console (SSMC) GUI
  • Run reports using SSMC
  • Work with Thin Deduped volumes using Management Console, SSMC and the CLI and understand the cost advantages of using deduplication for volumes allocated from expensive SSD capacity
