Four Points Sheraton, Puchong

Learn to Build Your Own Unified Storage Server

The ServerWare Technical Storage Workshop features a Real World Application, Purpose Built Hands-On Modules to creating your own NAS (Network Attached Storage) and SAN (Storage Area Network) Storage Platform. NAS offers support for multiple file protocols which enable you to build cross-platform solutions and SAN offers iSCSI Target and Fibre Channel Target functionalities.

The ServerWare Technical Storage Workshop

Build Performance RAID Systems

Build Your Choice of Hardware RAID and Software RAID
and compares the performance.

Create Your Own NAS and iSCSI SAN

File Storage or Block Storage. Perhaps you would like to look into object based storage. Learn the different type of storage that works for you and connectivity.

Secure Your Storage System

Having a Data Storage Point is one thing. Securing your data is another. Do Storage Nodes need to be secured and how do you secure your data. Security Does Matter in anycase.

About this Workshop: Learn Hands-On Building Your Own Unified Storage Server
Enterprise-Class Storage Solution for Every Business

Combine both NAS and iSCSI SAN to a single solution. Built and use  a NAS solution, in the initial day of deploying a unified solution and at some point later, redeploy the unified storage platform in a different usage mode and use it for complicated enterprise block storage needs.

A Unified Storage reduces hardware and management requirements by enabling both block and file data to be stored in a single system and accessed through standards based protocols such as CIFS and NFS and SCSI or iSCSI. These multiprotocol systems can be attached to servers via IP and/or Fibre Channel.

Level Beginner to Intermediate
Method of Learning Lab Hands-On Learning with Lab Technical Assistance
Language English
Requirement A personal notebook and a little linux and Operating System Knowledge

Who Should Attend This Workshop:
I.T Manager, MIS Manager, Network and System Admin, Application Developer, Cloud Engineer, I.T Support Engineer

This workshop is designed for all who wishes to learn a new skill in building storage servers for their company needs and expansions.

Featuring Reduce Footprint. Increase Capacity. Lower Costs. SAS 12G SEAGATE Enterprise HDD in the Lab

Store large amounts of data without using a ton of space from Seagate

  • Quickly access high integrity data in a secure manner with either 12 Gb/s SAS.
  • Enjoy peace of mind with this third-generation drive delivering enterprise-class reliability for 24×7 environmental robustness
  • Lower your power costs and store data faster with over 50% improvement in watts/TB, and 18% sequential performance improvement compared to the previous generation
  • Rest easy with maximum system availability and drive performance as a result of improved rotational vibration tolerance and head micro-actuation

The Advantages of a Unified Storage for Business

Deployment of Unified Storage Systems in a data storage infrastructure includes-

The ability to plan overall storage capacity consumption- the planning for file and block storage capacity on a separately.

Increased utilization with no stranded capacity- Cuts down the capacity utilization penalty associated with planning for block and file storage. Includes flexible support for multiple protocols.

Pooled storage flexibility- By deploying this storage, users can allocate storage to support application requirements regardless of whether the application requires block or file data access.

Server Virtualization needs will be supported- Very often, users deploy server virtualization environments that require block-based raw device mapping for performance reasons. Unified Storage gives users a choice regarding how they store virtual machine data without having to separately buy SAN and NAS capacity.
