VMAX All Flash and VMAX3 Performance Workshop (MR-1CP-VMAXAF3PW)

 

Course Overview

This course introduces participants to the methodology for analyzing the performance of VMAX All Flash and VMAX3 family of storage arrays. Unisphere for VMAX will be used to analyze the performance of VMAX All Flash and VMAX3 arrays. Metrics that are relevant for analysis of each of the components in the arrays are presented. Participants will learn to identify bottlenecks for performance and provide recommendations to remedy the problem. Hands-on lab exercises using performance archives reinforce the concepts and methodology presented in the lecture.

Who should attend

This course is intended for Dell EMC Personnel, Dell EMC Partners, and Dell EMC Customers who will be involved in implementing and managing the performance of VMAX All Flash and VMAX3 arrays.
