SME: Anonymous

In this course in the Server Administration series, we learn more about storage for servers. We start off by understanding storage systems by looking at hard disks, RAID, independent disks, and so forth. Then, we move on to discuss other types of storage such as SAN and external drives, and we complete the course by discussing calculating capacity and how to ensure that there is sufficient capacity to meet your needs.
Course Objectives
Upon completion of this course, the student will have a relatively thorough understanding of the CompTIA Server+ objectives: given a scenario, install and deploy primary storage devices based on given specifications and interfaces; and, given a scenario, configure RAID using best practices. By the end of this course, the student will know the importance of network storage and will understand how he/she can provide storage on the network for users as well as for the servers. The student will also know the various types of RAID and how to implement them. Ultimately, the student will have a better grasp of the different aspects regarding hard disk, RAID, SAN, and external drives along with several other storage options and backup media.
