This course covers the general concepts of Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) and disaggregated Hyperconverged Infrastructure (dHCI), as well as HPE offerings from the HCI portfolio with focus on HPE Alletra dHCI using HPE Alletra 6000 or HPE Alletra 5000, or HPE Nimble Storage. Hands-on labs are used to reinforce selected content discussed in the lecture.

The course covers HPE Alletra dHCI features and theory of operation, including building blocks, available deployment options, and networking aspects. It also lists HPE Alletra dHCI management options, such as on-premises integration with VMware vSphere® client and HPE GreenLake cloud-based management. HPE InfoSight support for dHCI is covered as well.

In addition, the course discusses use cases and integration of HPE Alletra dHCI with VMware (vCenter® plug-in, vSphere® Virtual Volumes™(vVols), and vSphere Metro Storage Cluster with HPE Peer Persistence, plus VMware Site Recovery Manager™ (SRM) and VMware Cloud Foundation™) as well as integration with Kubernetes® (including overview, CSI driver, and architecture). The course then presents the Intelligent Upgrade process.


Course objectives

After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Understand the concepts of HCI and dHCI
  • Describe HPE Alletra dHCI features and theory of operation
  • List HPE Alletra dHCI building blocks, variants, and options, as well as solution installation
  • Discuss networking of HPE Alletra dHCI
  • Overview HPE Alletra dHCI management options
  • List HPE Alletra dHCI main use cases and integrations
  • Explain the HPE Alletra dHCI upgrade Process



This course is for anyone who manages the HPE Nimble Storage or HPE Alletra dHCI solutions.
