Veritas InfoScale Availability 7.0 for UNIX: Administration


Course Description


Overview

The Veritas InfoScale Availability 7.0 for Linux: Administration course is designed for the IT professional tasked with installing, configuring, and maintaining Veritas Cluster Server (VCS) clusters. This five day, instructor-led, hands-on class covers how to use InfoScale Availability to manage applications in a high availability environment. After gaining the fundamental skills that are needed to manage a highly available application in a cluster, you can deploy InfoScale Availability in a lab environment to implement a sample cluster design.
Hands-On This course includes practical lab exercises that enable you to test your new skills and begin to transfer those skills into your working environment.
 

Audience

This course is for Linux system administrators, system engineers, technical support personnel, network/SAN administrators, and systems integration/development staff, who will be installing, operating, or integrating InfoScale Availability.  

Prerequisites

Knowledge of and hands-on experience with Linux systems administration.
