Veritas InfoScale Availability 7.3 for Unix/Linux: Administration

Duration: 5 Days (40 Hours)

Veritas InfoScale Availability 7.3 for Unix/Linux: Administration Course Overview:

The Veritas InfoScale Availability 7.3 for Unix/Linux: Administration course is specifically designed for IT professionals who are responsible for installing, configuring, and maintaining Veritas Cluster Server (VCS) clusters. This comprehensive course provides participants with the necessary skills to effectively manage applications in a high availability environment using InfoScale Availability.

Throughout the course, participants will learn the fundamental concepts and techniques required to successfully manage highly available applications within a cluster. Topics covered include cluster installation, configuration, maintenance, and troubleshooting. Participants will also have the opportunity to deploy InfoScale Availability in a lab environment to implement a sample cluster design, allowing for hands-on experience and practical application of the learned concepts.

The Veritas InfoScale Availability 7.3 course is available in multiple delivery methods, including Instructor-led Training (ILT) and Virtual Academy (VA), providing flexibility for participants to choose the format that best suits their learning preferences and schedule.

By the end of the course, participants will have gained the knowledge and skills necessary to confidently install, configure, and maintain Veritas Cluster Server clusters, ensuring high availability and reliability for their applications in a Unix/Linux environment.

Intended 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
