LN DCG 300 DV COM – Lenovo V-series Storage Technical Workshop

Format: Classroom

Duration: 2 days


This course is designed to leverage SAN storage connectivity by integrating a layer of intelligence – the Lenovo V3700 and V5000 – to facilitate storage application data access independence from storage management functions and requirements. The focus is on planning and implementation tasks associated with integrating the Lenovo V3700 / V5000 into the storage area network. It exploits both internal storage of the Lenovo V3700 and V5000 as well as SAN attached external heterogeneous storage to centralize storage provisioning to SAS, Fibre Channel and iSCSI host servers from common storage pools. It also explains how to:
• Implement storage tiering and optimize solid state drives (SSDs) usage with Easy Tier
• Address backup recovery point objectives and recovery time objectives with FlashCopy technology
• Facilitate the coexistence and migration of data from non-virtualized to the virtualized environment
• Scale-out with a clustered Lenovo V-series Storage system for capacity, throughput, and greater management efficiency


Individuals who assess or plan to deploy the Lenovo V-series storage system and leverage storage network virtualization solutions.


After completing this course, you should be able to:
• Set up and configure the Lenovo V-series Storage Systems
• Install and cable expansion enclosures
• Create RAID arrays using internal Lenovo V-Series storage and manage drive use attributes
• Define and manage storage pools using internal Lenovo V5000 storage as well as SAN attached external storage
• Update zoning policies to enable the Lenovo V5000 to access SAN attached external storage and provision storage to host servers
• Utilize Lenovo V-series management interfaces to support the networked storage environment, assign storage to servers, migrate data, replicate data across attaching storage systems, and monitor storage access activities
• Take advantage of storage efficiency solutions including Thin Provisioning, Volume Mirroring and Easy Tier
• Migrate existing data to the virtualized Lenovo V-series environment
• Implement point-in-time copies across internal and external storage using FlashCopy GUI presets
• Utilize Easy Tier to optimize the usage of solid state drives (SSDs)
