CompTIA Storage+ Part 1: Storage Fundamentals

by Nigel Poulton

Dec 9, 2013 / 3h 19m

Intermediate • 3h 19m

Start Course
Description

Storage and storage networking are becoming increasingly important to businesses of all shapes and sizes across the planet. And they will only continue to become more and more important in the future, as businesses and society in general are demanding more and more storage than ever. As a result, there is an increasing demand for IT professionals to be proficient with storage concepts and administering storage systems. This CompTIA Storage+ training course not only covers the objectives required for the CompTIA Storage+ exam, but also covers topics current and relevant in the real world, such as cloud storage and flash memory. This course is vendor-neutral and will train the student in topics ranging from disk drives and flash memory, through RAID, arrays, SANS, backup & recovery, object storage and cloud storage. If you're new to IT, or consider yourself a server or networking veteran, this course will bring you up to speed on the fundamental concepts of storage, as well as introduce you to the disruptive nature of technologies like cloud storage and flash memory.
