Course description

This course covers Remote Copy, System Reporter, Adaptive Optimization, and Peer Motion. Additional topics include best practices: performance, cost, and high availability along with the new EVA to HP 3PAR Online Migration feature. Hands-on lab exercises help illustrate the concepts learned.
This course is 60 percent lecture and 40 percent hands-on labs using HP 3PAR arrays. In some cases students will partner with other students for hands-on labs. Two appendices in the student guide include HP 3PAR Cluster Extension (CLX) and Recovery Manager. These will be covered time permitting and are generally regarded as ''read-only'' material. There are no hands-on labs for these topics.

Who should attend

Technical Consultants and HP 3PAR administrators who desire training on specific concepts and best practices needed to administer the array.


• Managing HP 3PAR Disk Arrays (HK902S) or an understanding of HP 3PAR disk array concepts (CPG, VV, VLUN).
