About this Course

This course uses lecture and hands-on exercises to teach basic administration of clustered Data ONTAP®. In this course you configure and manage a Data ONTAP cluster. You practice working with Data ONTAP features and managing your storage systems with the CLI and UI interfaces. This course also discusses network management fundamentals, basic protocols that are used to access your data, and how to protect, manage, and monitor your clustered storage environment. Data ONTAP 7-Mode administrators will benefit from comparisons to earlier Data ONTAP versions to help them master the basics of clustered Data ONTAP.

Who should attend

  • NetApp customers, partners, and employees

What You Will Learn

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

  • Identify the components of a Data ONTAP storage environment
  • Install and set up a Data ONTAP cluster
  • Perform basic administration on a storage system
  • Configure physical and logical storage
  • Configure client protocols for a simple environment
  • Describe Snapshot copies and space consumption in Data ONTAP
