Information Storage and Management v3


Information Storage and Management (ISM) is a unique course that provides a comprehensive understanding of the various storage infrastructure components in data center environments. It enables participants to make informed decisions on storage-related technologies in an increasingly complex IT environment, which is fast changing with the adoption of software-defined infrastructure management and third platform technologies (cloud, Big Data, social, and mobile technologies).

It provides a strong understanding of storage technologies and prepares participants for advanced concepts, technologies, and processes.
