HH602SR Data Center Operations, Maintenance and Risk Reduction

This 3-day instructor-led course is designed to teach students the principles of Data Center Operations and Maintenance, including a focus on Risk Reduction through design strategies. Concepts related to risk tolearace and availabiltity are covered, as well as how data center investments can support high availability. Strategic elements for operational success are discussed, including operations/maintenance action plans and supporting resources that are available. This course is 100% lecture
An understanding of why data centers are necessary in meeting a business strategyAn understanding of how important applications are to meeting the business strategyAn understanding of how the IT architecture supports the business applicationsAn understanding of the importance of the data center facilities infrastructure in achieving the degree of availability required to meet the business strategy supported by the data centerFamiliarity with electrical and mechanical infrastructure used to provide power and cooling to IT equipment in the data centerFamiliarity with a data center environment and its typical operational needs
