Introduction to Storage (Digital Course)
Learn the latest on data storage. This course covers the basics of getting started with IBM Storage. It describes data protection and high availability features. It then goes into the concepts of storage virtualization. It introduces the IBM Spectrum suite of Software-defined storage products. It covers all our disk, flash, tape products. And finally, it covers our storage networking solutions and introduces the idea of cloud computing as it relates to storage.
Data is growing faster in massive stages than ever before. New data is created every second by big data analytics, mobile devices, and social applications. At the rate which data has increased, businesses of all sizes are faced with challenges like capacity growth, performance impact, and day-to-day management to maintain and retain the accuracy of data in either the data centers or the cloud.
IBM offers storage systems designed to analyze massive amounts of data. IBM Storage solutions provide the speed and performance of ready data access with the agility and efficiency of hybrid cloud and software-defined storage. More importantly, they provide product solutions that connect data across any architecture that help businesses to face challenges head on while reducing total cost of ownership.
