HPE Storage: Containers and Automation - HN5A3S


This course provides hands-on learning for developers and administrators who create automation and integration applications. The course focuses on automating container applications using HPE storage arrays and:
• HPE modules for Ansible-enabled automated storage provisioning
• an SDK to communicate with the HPE storage array over the WSAPI REST interface
• the HPE Volume Plugin for Docker that provides persistent storage for your containerized applications and popular container platforms like Docker, Kubernetes, and OpenShift
• the tools and techniques to automate deployment of an application in Kubernetes with persistent storage

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
  • Demonstrate the use of the WSAPI REST interface
  • Configure and use a Docker environment using the Docker storage plugin
  • Configure a Kubernetes environment that uses HPE Primera/3PAR storag
