SNIA Storage Networking Management and Administration (Application)

Management and Administration provides a comprehensive understanding of Fibre Channel SAN and SAN Management technologies from a vendor-neutral perspective. Participants learn about protocols, standards, operation, and implementation considerations, including SAN Management tools and integration with the overall Enterprise Resource Management scheme.

Technology assessments range from the capabilities and limitations of Fibre Channel SANs, to in-depth discussions of complementary technologies that enable the integration of SANs with LAN/MAN/WAN infrastructures to address business and IT goals.
