Upcoming Classes

H9P97S Managing HPE 3PAR StoreServ III: Performance and Health Management

This 3-day training covers advanced topics that a storage administrator will encounter after performing the tasks covered in the HPE 3PAR basic courses (HK902S and HK904S). Topics included are: Space Explained, Performance, Alerts, Troubleshooting, Upgrading, Adaptive Flash Cache
(AFC) and Configuration Rebalancing. The course is 50% lecture with 50% hands-on labs. Additional Scenario Labs compliment the Module Labs. These Lifecycle Labs include Adaptive optimization, Quality of Service and Adaptive Flash.

A storage administrator who has been managing HPE 3PAR StoreServ arrays on a daily basis for at least a year. This training is not for
an individual who has no experience managing a HPE 3PAR array

Students must have attended HK902S and HK904S

At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
• Explain how space is allocated and mapped
• Identify data reduction
• Understand performance
• Discuss best practices
• Explain HPE 3PAR events and alerts and how to get notifications about them
• Use CLI and GUI to troubleshoot your storage system
• Perform rebalancing
• Use Adaptive Flash Cache to increase performance
• Upgrade your hardware and software of your storage system
• Employ tools that can be used to troubleshoot and respond to HPE 3PAR
performance issues.
