Course Overview:

ONTAP 9 Cluster Administration and Data Protection Training Bundle (CDOTDP9) with Hands-on Labs

The ONTAP 9 Cluster Administration and Data Protection Training Bundle (CDOTDP9) course uses lecture and hands-on exercises to teach basic administration and configuration of a cluster as well as the core backup and restore technologies found in ONTAP 9. The hands-on labs allow you to practice working with ONTAP features and manage your storage and network resources using the cluster shell and OnCommand System Manager. You will learn how to implement and manage SnapMirror, SnapVault, and SnapLock technology which are used to replicate and restore mission-critical data in the enterprise. The ONTAP 9 Cluster Administration and Data Protection Training Bundle (CDOTDP9) course also surveys real-world scenarios and use cases to teach you when to use each of the NetApp protection solutions. Backup and restore operations are taught using the command line and OnCommand System Manager.
