Course Outline

In this Storage and High Availability with Windows Server training class, you will learn about traditional storage topologies such as Direct Attached Storage (DAS), Network Attached Storage (NAS), Storage Area Networks (SANs), and bus technologies such as Fibre Channel and Internet SCSI (iSCSI). The course will also cover the latest innovations concerning disks, volumes and file systems as well as new technologies such as Storage Spaces, tiering, thin provisioning and Data Deduplication, and enhanced functionality to SMB and NFS sharing protocols in Windows Server 2012 R2.
