Course Description

This course walks you through how to build a fully ready and complete NetApp simulator lab from scratch, using NetApp’s latest operating system ONTAP 9.

The lab features two NetApp simulator clusters with Windows and Linux clients in separate IP subnets to make it as close to a real world environment as possible... and best of all you can build and run the lab completely for free, all you need is a PC to run it on.

We cover step by step where to find all the software for free, how to build the NetApp simulators, the Windows and Linux clients, the VMware setup and how to configure the networking.

Almost all NetApp features can be practised and tested using the lab. You can use it as a study tool or for testing features before deploying them in your production environment.

The lab build outlined in the book is the same one I use for the hands-on demonstrations in my NetApp training videos. You can use the instructions in this course to build your own lab and follow along with me.

I hope you can make use of this course to expand your storage knowledge and further your career.

Instructor Biography

Neil Anderson, Building your Cloud and Data Center career

Hi, I'm Neil Anderson, and my mission is to build the best Cloud and Data Center systems engineers possible.

For the last 9 years my main focus has been delivery of technical training and development of course content for large enterprise and service provider customers such as NetApp, Cisco, Verizon and IBM. I train the engineers who design and implement the largest Cloud and Data Center deployments throughout the Asia Pacific region and the rest of the world.

I also provide consultancy support and mentoring for the services division systems engineers in the company I work for.

Prior to focusing on training I worked in the field for over 10 years in a variety of systems and network engineering roles.

I've always embraced change and I've worked in contract roles for dozens of companies, big and small, and enjoyed soaking up knowledge across all areas of information technology. I'm lucky this has given me a broad perspective across server, network and storage technologies.

As well as explaining the hands-on details of each technology I teach, a key part of my role is explaining the big picture of how all the technologies fit together in real world deployments, and the best practice way to implement them.

My mission is building engineers, my passion is helping people succeed. I love to hear back from students who I've helped move on to the next level in their career. It gives me huge satisfaction to know I've played a part in them achieving their goals.

If you have any questions about Cloud, NetApp, Cisco or VMware technologies, ping me a message and I'd love to help you out.
