SAN Training by TONEX

Storage Networking and Engineering Training Boot Camp is a comprehensive, vendor neutral exposure to storage and networking interfaces architectures, storage solutions and supporting technologies.

What will you learn at the TONEX Storage Networking and Engineering Training Boot Camp?

The Storage and Networking Training Boot Camp is a 4-day accelerated course by TONEX that provides comprehensive, vendor-neutral exposure to SAN solutions and supporting technologies, such as Fibre Channel, NAS, iSCSI, SATA, SAS, clouds and IP storage. Attendees learn about architecture, protocols, standards, management practices, performance, security, tools, and SAN-design and implementation considerations.

Class discussions cover a wide range of topics, including the capabilities and limitations of the various supporting technologies and SAN management in enterprise environments, while a hands-on lab allows students to apply their knowledge of the Fibre Channel protocol; gain experience with component installation and configuration; build a simple SAN fabric; and explore SAN management applications.
