Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 SP1: Novell Cluster Services 1.8 (Novell Technical Training) [Course 8702]

Course Overview

Novell Cluster Services is a key component of Open Enterprise Server that helps you manage all the resources on your Storage Area Network (SAN). Novell Cluster Services is integrated with Open Enterprise Server and together, these products enable you to:

  • Deliver non-stop access to data and resources
  • Scale to meet expanding storage requirements
  • Reduce storage management costs
In this Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 SP1: Novell Cluster Services 1.8 course, you learn how to achieve more uptime by installing and configuring Novell Cluster Services. To get you started, the class will focus on cluster-enabling file storage, specifically an NSS volume. With Novell Cluster Services, you can easily adjust your storage infrastructure to accommodate business growth. We will show you how you can add servers to a cluster dynamically without interrupting users and simply switch resources to the new servers to provide optimal load balancing across the cluster. In addition, we will look at other important applications and give direction on how to properly cluster enable them. The labs for this module are designed to re-inforce subjects learned during the lecture.
