When designing a Dell EMC Unity 480F solution, what is the maximum number of enclosures and drive slots, per bus?
Table 3. Dell EMC Unity X80/F Model Comparison
What component or feature is provided by both the Dell EMC PowerStore 1000T array and the Dell EMC Unity XT 380 Series array?
"When positioning the 380 and 380F, keep in mind that they are not NVMe-ready and will not be upgradeable to support NMVe in the future.".
Which QoS option is NOT supported by Dell EMC Unity XT?
A customer must restrict the share content visibility of a Dell Unity file system based on the access rights. What attribute at the share level must be used?
Access-based enumeration is the attribute that must be used at the share level to restrict the share content visibility of a Dell Unity file system based on the access rights. Access-based Enumeration (ABE) is a feature that allows you to hide files and folders from users who do not have the necessary permissions to access them. When ABE is enabled, users only see the files and folders that they have permission to access. This helps to prevent users from accidentally accessing data that they should not have access to, and it helps to maintain the security and integrity of the data on the file system.
A Dell Unity XT 480F system ships with two embedded modules, one for each SP What does the embedded module provide?
The embedded module in a Dell Unity XT 480F system provides management functionality for the system, such as control of the storage array, monitoring of system health and performance, and management of storage resources. This embedded module allows you to manage the system through an intuitive web-based interface or via command-line interface.
What storage resources are affected with a refresh option on a Dell EMC PowerStore array?
An administrator wants to use NAS Server Mobility to move a NAS server from SPA to SPB on a Dell Unity system What consideration must they be aware of?
When using NAS Server Mobility to move a NAS server from SPA to SPB on a Dell Unity system, an administrator must be aware that any replication sessions must be in a paused state before starting the move. This means that any data replication sessions that are configured for the NAS server must be temporarily stopped to avoid data inconsistencies or data loss during the move. Once the move is complete, the replication sessions can be resumed, and data replication will continue as normal. NAS Server Mobility is still supported by Dell Unity, so it's not a concern of the move. The system does not need to be in service mode to complete the move, and the DNS configuration won't be lost after the move, the administrator should make sure that the DNS entries for the NAS server are updated to reflect the new location.
Which Dell EMC Midrange storage platforms support NVMe SCM drives?
A technical architect is helping a customer prepare for a data center maintenance window All applications must failover to the disaster recovery site The customer also wants to test their disaster recovery plan
What PowerStore Manager replication option should be used to address the customer's need: and from which site should the option be run?
In this scenario, the customer wants to test their disaster recovery plan and wants all applications to failover to the disaster recovery site. To accomplish this, the technical architect should use the planned failover option from the source site, the primary site. This will allow the customer to test their disaster recovery plan and ensure that all applications can be successfully failed over to the disaster recovery site. It's important to note that if the customer wants to failover to the disaster recovery site for maintenance and after that fail back to the primary site, the planned failover should be run from the target site.
A company has a Dell Unity XT 880 at its Boston site providing file storage for a business production application The company has a second remote site 8 km (5 mi) away in Cambridge A third site is in New York (342 km (213 mi) from the Boston site)
How can the same production data be protected against system outage with a zero RPO and a maximum of 15 minutes RPO data recovery?
Synchronous replication will provide a zero RPO as all data is written to both the primary and secondary storage at the same time, which means any data written to the primary storage will be instantly available on the secondary storage. This configuration will ensure that the data is protected against system outage, and in case of any failure, the recovery time will be a maximum of 15 minutes as the data is already replicated to the secondary site.
A storage administrator plans to complete a technology refresh from a Dell EqualLogic PS6100 to a Dell EMC PowerStore array. The affected hosts are running native MPIO.
What is the recommended method to support an import to PowerStore?
An install of the PowerStore ImportKIT is required on the hosts to support import to PowerStore.
At what granularity are blocks deduplicated on a Dell EMC PowerStore array?
Deduplication uses algorithms to analyze, perform pattern detection, and attempts to store only a single instance of data. In general deduplication can work at the block, bit-level, or file level. In PowerStore, deduplication works at the block level at 4 KB granularity.
What is a key feature of the Dell EMC Future-Proof Storage Loyalty Program for Dell EMC SC Series arrays?
Dell EMC Flash Storage Efficiency Guarantee Dell EMC promises our flash arrays will provide a logical usable capacity at least four times the usable physical capacity of your purchased drives —or we’ll give you more drives at no charge.https://www.delltechnologies.com/en-us/blog/dell-emc-flash-storage-efficiency/
You are designing a Dell EMC Unity solution. You need to model expected array performance based om IOPS capability, storage capacity, and RAID type.
Which Midrange Sizer design path should you take?
How does configuring snapshot retention differ when manually creating snapshots in the Dell EMC Unity GUI, compared to using the Unity CLI?
What is a best practice for host connectivity on Dell EMC PowerStore?
Which optional I/O Module card type is supported for both Dell PowerStore T and Dell PowerStore X?
Both Dell PowerStore T and Dell PowerStore X support the 10 GbE BaseT optional I/O module card type. This card provides 10 Gbps Ethernet connectivity and can be used to connect the storage array to a network. The other options are not supported by both models. 25 GbE and 32 Gb Fibre Channel are generally faster and used for high-performance systems, while 8 Gb Fibre Channel is an older standard, and not supported by Dell PowerStore T and Dell PowerStore X.
Which features were introduced in SCOS 7.3?
What is a benefit of using a performance assessment tool?
A performance assessment tool is used to evaluate the performance of storage systems and provide statistics that can be used to identify and troubleshoot performance issues. One of the benefits of using a performance assessment tool is that it provides automated performance statistics in chart and table format, making it easy to understand performance metrics and identify any potential issues. This allows the user to quickly identify and address any bottlenecks in the system, and make adjustments to improve performance.
