Course description

The Building HPE Storage Solutions course is an instructor-led course. This course teaches students how to architect, design, and propose storage solutions using the HPE Storage portfolio primarily focused on small-to-mid-size business (SMB). The course covers foundational storage architectures and technologies including the characteristics, performance, advantages, and uses of different storage drive and interconnect technologies, storage transport components, SAN topologies, storage virtualization, and backup and recovery systems. It also teaches positioning of HPE storage products, solutions, and warranty offerings that form HPE's Converged Storage portfolio.
The course uses participant centered learning and hands-on emulators. Emulators use software to replicate HPE Storage technologies and allow learners to engage in lab activities using web based resources.

Ideal candidate for this course

Typical candidates for this course are:
- HPE Channel partners who are interested in learning how to identify opportunities and defining technical requirements for SMB Storage Solutions.
- Presales architects or integrators who want to increase their knowledge and confidence to design the right commercial storage solutions for SMB customers
Recommended: a minimum of six (6) months of experience in storage technologies.
