Taking this NetApp Storage training course will give you the advanced level knowledge and hands-on skills you need to configure, manage and maintain NetApp Clustered Data ONTAP, the 'Number One Storage Operating System in the world' as listed by IDC.
The course is designed to give you a deep understanding of the theory of storage and all its functions and features. You'll gain the best practice knowledge of how to implement NetApp storage in a real world environment, and the hands-on skills to configure your system.
I am a full-time professional NetApp instructor who has been entrusted by NetApp since 2007 to develop and deliver training courses for their own engineers and partners. I have also designed multiple training courses for the largest service providers in Asia Pacific such as Verizon, Telstra, and the Australian National Broadband Network. I provide mentoring and support for my company's systems engineers as they deploy NetApp storage systems and I worked in the field for over ten years before focusing on passing my knowledge on to others.
The format of the course lessons is a full explanation of the topic theory, then a live demonstration in the lab where I show you the complete configuration using first the NetApp System Manager GUI and then the Command Line Interface.
We're going to go through the complete configuration of the system in a logical manner, from taking it out of the box to the final tweaks to ensure best performance and availability, and covering off all the NetApp features as we go.
At over 20 hours long taking the course can seem daunting, but because it's laid out in a logical manner you can pick and choose the parts which are important to you. If you're a professional storage engineer who's going to be working on NetApp systems day to day, then skip the beginner sections and watch the rest. If you're new to storage, then just watch the theory part of the lessons and the GUI configuration sections you need.
If later you need to know the best practice to configure a feature in your environment and want to see a step-by-step configuration example, you know it's all here.
The course focuses on Clustered Data ONTAP 8.3, which is currently the most commonly deployed version. The topics covered apply to all versions of the operating system.
A verifiable course certificate stating you have completed this advanced level NetApp Data ONTAP training will be provided at the end of the course. This will prove to potential future employers that you have the knowledge and skills necessary to be a real asset to their company. And if NetApp certification is your goal, you will find everything you need and more here to attain the NCDA NetApp Certified Data Administrator in Clustered Data ONTAP, the de facto standard in NetApp Storage certification.
As a student in this course, you will get an answer to every question you ask in the Ask Question section. I love interaction with my students- anything you want to know, please ask.
All of the slides shown in the course are included in the supplemental material.

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.
