Course Content

For students that are new to enterprise storage concepts and NetApp, BNCA is a good place to begin. This 2-day course introduces students introductory concepts found in both Data ONTAP 7-mode and Clustered Data ONTAP. Some of the concepts covered through instructor led discussions and hands-on labs are how to create aggregates, virtual interfaces, snapshots, volumes, qtrees, and storage virtual machines.

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