Vendor-Neutral Storage Training Comes to the Midwest

Storage systems have evolved into complex IT structures that require increasing numbers of skilled and experienced technical specialists. To meet this growing demand, Data Center Enhancements Inc. has developed a series of comprehensive storage training classes for release in major metropolitan areas throughout the Midwest. These vendor-neutral courses focus on providing a comprehensive examination of data storage technologies, and a certification program to validate student knowledge. They provide attendees with a solid understanding of the technology's capabilities, and an ability to make sound decisions about the suitability of commercial storage products for their specific business environments.

Saint Charles, IL (PRWEB) July 27, 2009 -- Technical consulting firm Data Center Enhancements Inc. announces the formation of a new training services group. This new group will focus on delivery of instructor-led storage training classes. We will focus on presenting an in-depth examination of storage technology concepts to ensure maximum depth and breadth of understanding. Each course will be designed to assist students with the preparation for one or more comprehensive storage certification examinations.

The massive quantity of data under SAN/NAS management continues to grow each year. As a result, there is an ever widening gap between business data storage demands, and the number of trained and experienced personnel available to manage storage demands. Complicating the problem is the lack of a reliable mechanism for evaluating an individual's knowledge and skills.

To alleviate this growing problem, Data Center Enhancements Inc. has developed a series of vendor-neutral training classes to help students build a solid understanding of storage concepts and successfully develop a strong foundation in SAN and NAS technologies. This differs significantly from manufacturer-provided classes, which may focus as much as 80% or more on unique product features and capabilities. In contrast, our courses examine storage technology concepts, providing students with a level of understanding that will allow them determine which products offer the best overall solutions for their specific business environments.

Classes planned for release over the next 4-6 months include:
Storage Networking Systems - Fundamental Concepts
Storage Administration Tasks and Procedures
Storage Architecture Methodology and Design Concepts
Troubleshooting Storage Networks
