ONTAP Cluster Administration plus Integrating Hybrid Cloud w/NetApp Data Fabric BootCamp (ONTAP9ADM+INTHCDF)


Course Overview

This five-day boot camp instructor-led course, combines ONTAP9ADM with Integrating Hybrid Clouds with Amazon Web Services (INTHCDF). You use the cluster shell and ONTAP System Manager to manage storage and network resources. ONTAP Cluster Administration is an intermediate course in a comprehensive learning path for NetApp customers, partners, and employees.

In the hybrid cloud solution, you learn how to connect hyperscalers and on-premises data centers. You also learn about various NetApp Cloud Data Services, including Cloud Volumes, Cloud Volumes ONTAP, Cloud Sync and Cloud Insights and how they operate in the Data Fabric. You get hands on experience with Cloud Volumes ONTAP, Cloud Sync and Cloud Volumes, as well as with the AWS and Azure clouds.

NOTE: In ONTAP 9.7, NetApp has released enhancements in Data Protection and Encryption, storage efficiency, hardware support, networking and security protocols, REST API’s and much more. Fast Lane has added this content to the current ONTAP 9.6 Administration class to ensure you are getting the most up-to-date training available.
