NetApp Data-ONTAP Cluster-Mode Administration
NetApp Training Overview

Data ONTAP 8.2 is the next generation data storage operating system from NetApp. It builds on the stability and scalability of Data ONTAP 8.0.

In this course, you will learn the evolution of Data ONTAP clustering and use new features, including block protocols and System Manager 2.0. You will explore the benefits of scalability and cover the architecture and functionality of a Data ONTAP cluster. You'll learn how to install, configure, manage, and troubleshoot a Data ONTAP cluster.

NetApp Training Audience

Anyone with a working knowledge of network attached storage and SAN

NetApp Professional Services, employees, partners, and customers

NetApp Training Prerequisites

Data ONTAP 7-Mode Administration


Labs sessions will be delivered using NetApp Simulator
