Course description

Storage won’t help if you don’t know the best way to use it — and there’s more to storage these days than the old standby of “disk” and “backup disk.” In this course, you’ll become more familiar with the challenges posed by implementing mass storage. Beginning with an introduction to partitioning, you’ll look at MBR and GPT partitioning, understanding file systems, dynamic disks, RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) and much, much more.
