Course Content

In this course you will learn different methods to implement VMware vSphere 6.7u1 on NetApp ONTAP 9.5. The course provides a quick update on the current ONTAP and VMware versions, introduce the current tools to manage a VMware virtual infrastructure (VSC 7.2.1) and describe and provide practical exercises to provision datastores and storage for guest VMs with various protocols. It also points administrators to methods to back up their virtual infrastructure according to best practices and discusses methods and tools to manage and monitor for health and performance.
