VMware vSphere on NetApp (VVNA)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline
 

Course Overview

Managing a vSphere storage virtualization environment requires knowledge of the features that exist between VMware and NetApp to handle large data workloads. The VMware vSphere on NetApp training provides in-depth use of best practices to improve storage resource utilization, simplify operating system maintenance irrespective of the storage topology, data center operations simplification, and optimal use of your NetApp storage. The course covers the management of any cloud infrastructure using Clustered Data ONTAP 8.3 and the VMware vSphere 6.0 virtualization and management suite.

This hands-on 5-day class with hands on labs immerses you into the virtual machine management and storage operations spanning NetApp Data ONTAP, VMware ESXi with vCenter management. You will get a hands-on experience using the vCenter NetApp plug-in, the Virtual Storage Console (VSC), configuring and monitoring the VMware host settings, performing backups, restoration, and virtual machine cloning operations.

PLEASE NOTE:
While VMware vSphere has upgraded to v6.5 and NetApp ONTAP has upgraded to v9.1, little has changed with regards to storage features and how the NetApp® Virtual Storage Console (VSC) uses VMware vSphere API for Storage Awareness (VASA), which is currently available for vSphere 6.0, to enable VMware Virtual Volumes (vVOLs). Topics taught in this class are relevant to all NetApp users of VMware vSphere.

In addition, by attending this course with Fast Lane you will experience a 1:1 student to lab ratio.
