Course Description

Managing NAS and Performance on Clustered Data ONTAP (NASPAD) Training course at Microtek Learning is a blend of SMB (CIFS), ONTAP NFS Administration (NFSAD), and performance analysis courses into a solitary, in-depth one-week course.

Through the course, you will be trained with the skills and the knowledge that you require to administer NFS versions 3, 4, and 4.1 and SMB version 1.x to 3.x in a clustered Data ONTAP® OS.

You will also know about the significant facts and skills that you require to gather and analyze system performance data from NetApp storage systems that run ONTAP 9.

Those who manage NetApp storage systems & require a great perceptive of performance and protocols in a clustered Data ONTAP environ can focus this training course.

NOTE: This course combines the 3-day ONTAP Performance Analysis (PERFCDOT), the 1-day ONTAP SMB Administration (CIFSAD), and the 1-day ONTAP NFS Administration (NFSAD), courses.
