Exam Description
The Information Storage and Management exam is a qualifying examination for the EMC Proven Professional Associate level. This exam requires the successful candidate to be able to describe storage networking technologies, such as DAS, SAN, NAS, and CAS. In addition, a candidate should be able to describe the key business and technical drivers for storage including business continuity, storage infrastructure security and management, and storage virtualization technologies. The common themes of this exam are technology
requirements, physical and logical elements, host-to-storage interconnection, data protection, and security. The Information Storage and Management exam focuses on underlying information storage technologies and concepts. A limited number of questions refer to EMC product examples that are used in the training to reinforce the knowledge of general storage technologies and concepts. The successful candidate will be awarded EMC Information Storage Associate (EMCISA) certification. A candidate can employ this knowledge and certification to a wide variety of storage and information technology roles and functions.

EMC provides free practice tests to assess your knowledge in preparation for the exam. Practice tests allow you to become familiar with the topics and question types that you will find in the proctored exam. Your results
in a practice test offer an indication of how prepared you are for the proctored exam and can highlight topics on which you need to study and train further. A passing score on the practice test does not guarantee a passing score on the certification exam.
