NetApp ONTAP 9.3 Cluster Administration and Data Protection Bundle (CDOTDP9)


This 5-day course comprises the 3-day ONTAP 9.3 Cluster Administration (ONTAP9ADM) followed by the 2-day ONTAP 9.3 Data Protection Administration (DATAPROT9) courses. The first 3 days uses lecture and hands-on exercises to teach basic administration of an ONTAP® cluster. You configure and maintain a cluster. You practice working with ONTAP features. You use the cluster shell and OnCommand® System Manager to manage storage and network resources. Spend the final 2 days learning the core technologies of ONTAP Data protection administration. You will learn to become proficient with ONTAP SnapMirror, SnapVault, SVM DR, SyncMirror, and NDMP technologies used to replicate, restore, and protect mission-critical data in the enterprise. Backup and restore operations are taught using the NetApp storage system CLI and the OnCommand System Manager. The course also provides an overview of the ONTAP MetroCluster high-availability and disaster recovery software solution.
