Course description

The Designing HPE Software Defined Infrastructure Solutions course is a Web-Based Training that is approximately 20 hours of self-directed content. It includes lectures and activities in the ratio of approximately 15% activities and 85% lecture. Given a customer scenario, you will learn to design HPE Software-Defined Infrastructure Solutions. You will also learn to analyze workloads and their use cases and prescribe the appropriate infrastructure platform (bare metal, containers, virtualization, etc.) including computing, storage, and networking.


Ideal candidate for this course

Solution architects who have experience designing and implementing a complex solution and want to validate their knowledge and skills to leverage HPE solutions in multi-site environments. Candidates typically define business needs and propose and may deploy the solutions.

    • Describe the HPE Composable Infrastructure Strategy
    • Explain the HPE value proposition for SDI, SDDC, SDS, and SDN
  • Design an HPE Composable Infrastructure Solution for a Virtualized Environment
    • Position SDI solutions to solve the customer’s requirements
    • Determine the appropriate software defined platform 
    • Design for a virtualized environment to determine the appropriate software-defined compute technology
  • Design an HPE SDS Solution for a Virtualized Environment
    • determine the appropriate SDS technology and design an HPE SDS solution
      • VMware vSAN and vSAN ReadyNode 
      • Overview of Microsoft Storage Spaces Direct
      • HPE SDS solutions and integrations
