1SS2: IBM Implementing SmartCloud Storage Access
DURATION: 3 days
SCHEDULED DATES: FEBRUARY 2017
IBM SmartCloud Storage Access is an easy-to-deploy, simple-to-use software solution that features a self-service portal for storage provisioning, monitoring and reporting. It is designed to provide you with a self-service file-serving facility over the Internet. With a few clicks, you can create an account, provision storage and start uploading files. Administrators can easily monitor and report storage usage and can create different classes of storage for different users or departments within an organization.
The course gives an introduction to the target markets and features of the IBM SmartCloud Storage Access software solution. Storage administrators will learn how to install and configure the SCS-A appliance and the related infrastructure components, setup organizational structures as well as storage resources, and finally provision network drives. The course also covers the monitoring and reporting of cloud storage resources.
This intermediate course is for IT architects, IT specialists, storage administrators and business partners who are experienced with implementing and operating file storage solutions, especially IBM Scale Out Network Attached Storage (SONAS) and V7000 Unified.
