The Planning & Implementing a Storage Area Network (SN71G) training course provides an overview of the storage network and Data Center networking technology. It reviews SAN concepts, Fibre Channel architecture, SAN topologies, IBM b-type offerings, IBM offerings from Cisco, and SAN over Ethernet architectures, such as iSCSI and FCoE. IBM offers a comprehensive portfolio of SAN switches, storage, software, services and solutions to reliably bring information to people in a cost-effective way. IBM provides flexible, scalable and open standards-based business-class and global enterprise-class storage networking solutions for the on-demand world.   See other courses available

SAN infrastructure and data access

  • relate the storage networking infrastructure to host data access using file Input/Output (I/O) and block I/O protocols
  • identify control points, such as zoning and Logical Unit Number (LUN) masking, where resource access control for data access integrity can be implemented in a SAN environment
  • state the purpose of FC services provided by FC switches such as login server, name server, zoning, and registered state change notifications
  • identify the functions of the FC host bus adapter as it relates to hosting I/O access and to the SAN fabric
  • state the purpose of the login process and differentiate among fabric login, port login, and process login
  • correlate HBA discovered and reported devices from the fabric with host display interfaces

FC switches and directors – Brocade (b-type)

  • plan for the implementation of the IBM TotalStorage SAN switches and directors (b-type and m-type), and the Cisco directors and switch by reviewing default configuration parameters and tailoring options
  • list the steps necessary to set up and use the Brocade Web Tools Graphical User Interface (GUI), the McDATA Enterprise Fabric Connectivity (EFC) Manager, or the Cisco Fabric Manager user interfaces
  • describe switch port interfaces and port initialization
  • interpret topology, routing, and trunking data displayed by switch management interfaces for a given fabric
  • plan and implement switch zoning to restrict any-to-any data access and ensure resource  access integrity

FC switches and directors – McDATA (m-type)

  • plan for the implementation of the IBM TotalStorage SAN switches and directors (b-type, m-type), and the Cisco directors and switch by reviewing default configuration parameters and tailoring options
  • list the steps necessary to set up and use the Brocade Web Tools GUI, the McDATA EFC Manager, or the Cisco Fabric Manager user interfaces
  • describe switch port interfaces and port initialization
  • interpret topology, routing, and trunking data displayed by switch management interfaces for a given fabric
  • plan and implement switch zoning to restrict any-to-any data access and ensure resource  access integrity

FC switches and directors – Cisco MDS

  • plan for the implementation of the IBM TotalStorage SAN switches and directors (b-type, m-type), and the Cisco directors and switch by reviewing default configuration parameters and tailoring options
  • list the steps necessary to set up and use the Brocade Web Tools GUI, the McDATA EFC Manager, or the Cisco Fabric Manager user interfaces
  • describe switch port interfaces and port initialization
  • interpret topology, routing, and trunking data displayed by switch management interfaces
  • plan and implement switch zoning to restrict any-to-any data access and ensure resource  access integrity

Course summary and introduction to design

  • identify SAN exploitation goals and technical issues to be considered when designing a SAN
  • explore options available to configure multiple switches for supporting server to storage access requirements
  • list one series of steps to follow when designing a SAN infrastructure
  • assess server requirements versus storage subsystem capabilities
  • build a fabric based on server and storage bandwidth estimates

This Storage Area Network (SAN) training is an intermediate course for individuals who are assessing or planning to deploy a SAN.
