Course Description

Leveraging this Data ONTAP SAN Implementation (SANIMP) Training workshop course will allow you to learn the ways to connect Linux® and Windows® hosts to NetApp® SANs via iSCSI and FC protocols.

The training course at Microtek Learning counts ONTAP 9.1 newest traits addendum. Certification as a NetApp Data Management Administrator Completion of 2 courses: ONTAP 7-Mode Administration (D7ADM) or SAN Fundamentals on Data ONTAP WBT Either Data ONTAP 9 Cluster Administration (ONTAP9ADM) or NetApp CDOTDP9.

Additionally, you will understand how to install and utilize SnapDrive for Linux software and SnapDrive® for Windows to create LUNs & Snapshot LUNs, restore LUNs from Snapshot copies, and eliminate LUNs. Learners who execute SAN solutions that use NetApp storage systems must attend the workshop course.
