The Managing HPE Primera course provides an overview of the HPE Primera portfolio. The course reviews how to perform common day-to-day management tasks with handson labs, including creating the right data efficient volumes on an all-flash HPE Primera array, and leveraging the power of HPE InfoSight.

This course also provides knowledge of the advanced capabilities of HPE Primera storage arrays, including lower level data reduction features, reporting, monitoring and alerting, QOS, and local and remote replication options. You gain practical understanding of HPE Primera array capabilities using extensive hands-on lab exercises.
