In this position you will be responsible for QA interoperability testing of a broad range of enterprise ecosystem partner products with the HP InServ storage array. The set of products to qualify from HP's storage ecosystem partners will include host based HW and SW, Fibre Channel and Ethernet infrastructure components, and data path appliances. This position will specifically focus on the support of new ecosystem products (or new versions) with currently released InServ product lines.
You will be required to perform technical analysis of the features/functions of the ecosystem partner products to be able to develop a detailed test plan to validate interoperability with HP InServ, and to scope the test schedule duration. From testing results, you will update the HP configuration matrix and develop implementation guides that document any special considerations related to installation and configuration of the Inserv Storage with the various ecosystem partner products tested. You will use both manual and automated testing to complete test execution and from that experience will help define and implement improved test automation and regression strategies.
You will also be required to assist HP Customer Support in resolving customer reported issues when deploying qualified and supported enterprise ecosystem partner products with InServ. Investigate issues, troubleshoot, reproduce issue in test lab as needed, and drive to root cause determination.
