Clustered Data ONTAP 8.3 Administration and Data Protection Training (CDOTDP)


This course uses lecture and hands-on exercises to teach basic administration of clustered Data ONTAP®. In this course, you will configure and manage a Data ONTAP cluster. You will practice working with Data ONTAP features and managing your storage systems with the CLI and GUI interfaces. This course also discusses network management fundamentals, basic protocols that are used to access your data, and how to protect, manage, and monitor your clustered storage environment. Become proficient with Data ONTAP Snapshot®, SnapRestore®, SnapMirror®, SnapVault®, Open Systems SnapVault, and NDMP technologies used to replicate and restore mission-critical data in the enterprise. Backup and restore operations are taught using the NetApp storage system command line and OnCommand System Manager. The course also provides an overview of the Data ONTAP 8.3 MetroCluster solution. Data ONTAP 7-Mode administrators will benefit from comparisons to earlier Data ONTAP versions to help them master the basics of clustered Data ONTAP.

Customize It:

● If you are familiar with some aspects of this course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
● We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
● If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
