NGT11: IBM PureFlex System: Introduction with practice labs
DURATION: 3 days
SCHEDULED DATES: APRIL 2017
The IBM PureFlex System is a category of computing that integrates multiple server architectures, networking, chassis, storage, and system management capability into a single system that is easy to deploy and manage.
This fundamentals class covers IBM PureSystems, IBM PureFlex System, and the IBM Flex System Enterprise Chassis along with the IBM X-Architecture and IBM Power Systems compute nodes, systems management, networking, and IBM Flex System V7000. Included are hands-on lab exercises to reinforce the learning principles associated with the Chassis Management Module, X-Architecture and Power Systems compute nodes, Flex System Manager, networking, and Flex System V7000.
This is a base course for individuals who are involved in the planning, installing, configuring, and upgrading of IBM Systems.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
After completing this course, you should be able to:
• Differentiate between IBM PureSystems and IBM PureFlex System
• Summarize the features and functions of the IBM Flex System Enterprise Chassis
• Differentiate the characteristics of the IBM Flex System x86 Compute Node from other IBM System x servers
• Differentiate the characteristics of the IBM Flex System Power Compute Nodes from other IBM Power servers
• Select the proper IBM Flex System networking components based on the solution requirements
