VERITAS Storage Foundation 5.x Workshop (Solaris / Linux)

Course:  VERSF
Duration:  5 Days
Level:  II
Course Summary

VERITAS Volume Manager (VxVM) enables an organization to better manage their disk storage, and increase the size of their file systems from the standard partitioning model. The VERITAS File System (VxFS) integrates with VxVM to provide advanced file system services and facilities. Combined, these two products form the basis of Storage Foundation (SF).
