Data Protector e-learning is now available -- with a special bundle

I've negotiated some very good pricing with HPE for their e-learning content -- as far as I can tell, there is no way of getting access to it anywhere in the world cheaper except by stealing it. I've sweetened the deal with a bundle of all my Data Protector 9 books and a virtual lab environment offer.

I've only got an English samples, but it's available in several languages. Have a look at some sample course content to get a feel of what it's like. (It's very similar to the Data Protector Essentials course).

There are interactive simulations which give hands-on practice very simply and easily. And finally, there are job aids supplied as part of the package.

Available for purchase now (along with lots of other Data Protector resources, books, licenses)...
