Basic NetApp Configuration and Administration (BNCA) Training

What Basic NetApp Configuration and Administration (BNCA) training is all about?

Leverage Basic NetApp Configuration and Administration Training (BNCA) course and get in-depth knowledge and a technical overview of the essential features and advantages of NetApp ONTAP 9 data management software. The supreme potential in all the critical domains such as disaster recovery, storage efficiency, backup, security compliance resiliency, and availability makes ONTAP software must need power for securing data processing and storage. The course allows you to explain the functionality and architecture of an ONTAP cluster. With BNCA, you will also be introduced to fundamental configuration, administration, and management of an ONTAP operating system cluster. Through practical exercises and lectures, you will learn how to create aggregates, Snapshot® copies, virtual interfaces (VIFs), FlexVol® volumes, storage virtual machines (SVMs), qtrees, and more. The course at Microtek Learning is an additional credential for IT generalists, NetApp customers, and academic alliance students.

NOTE: The word “SVM“(storage virtual machine) is equivalent to the word “Vserver“(virtual server)”.
