No matter where you are located, you can enroll for any training with us - because all our training sessions are delivered online by live instructors using interactive, intensive learning methods.

This training program is designed to give trainees a deep understanding of the theory of storage and its function. With this course trainees will learn, NetApp unified storage architecture, WAFL file system concepts, execution of commands by using the console, executing commands to determine a disk ID, the effects of using multiple disk types, creating a flexible volume, identify the configuration of network settings, routing tables in the Data ONTAP operating system, NFS implementation in the data ONTAP operating system, share a resource on the storage system and methods of tracking and restricting storage usage. This course also educates trainees about snap-drive data management software, storage efficiency techniques that are available within the Data ONTAP operating system, executing commands to collect data about write and read throughputs and commands and options that are used to obtain configuration and status. There are no prerequisites for this course. This course is beneficial for both fresher and professionals to enhance their learning and skills.
