NetApp ONTAP 9 Storage Essentials NetApp Training Course.
Supercharge your career by becoming a NetApp SAN and NAS Storage Ninja, and pass the NetApp NCDA exam!
* Please note that this course is never part of any Udemy discount promotions *
Taking this NetApp Storage training course will give you the advanced level knowledge and hands-on skills you need to configure, manage and maintain NetApp ONTAP, the ‘Number One Storage Operating System in the world’ as listed by IDC.
The course provides a structured approach which shortcuts your path to learning NetApp storage to an expert level.

The course is designed to give you a deep understanding of the theory of storage and all its functions and features. You’ll gain the best practice knowledge of how to implement NetApp storage in a real world environment, and the hands-on skills to configure your system.
I am a full-time professional NetApp instructor who has been entrusted by NetApp since 2007 to develop and deliver training courses for their own engineers and partners. I have also designed multiple training courses for the largest service providers in Asia Pacific such as Verizon, Telstra, and the Australian National Broadband Network. I provide mentoring and support for my company’s systems engineers as they deploy NetApp storage systems and I worked in the field for over ten years before focusing on passing my knowledge on to others.
The format of the course lessons is a full explanation of the topic theory, then a live demonstration in the lab where I show you the complete configuration using first the NetApp System Manager GUI and then the Command Line Interface.
We’re going to go through the complete configuration of the system in a logical manner, from taking it out of the box to the final tweaks to ensure best performance and availability, and covering off all the NetApp features as we go. 
At over 40 hours long taking the course can seem daunting, but because it’s laid out in a logical manner you can pick and choose the parts which are important to you. If you’re a professional storage engineer who’s going to be working on NetApp systems day to day, then skip the beginner sections and watch the rest. If you’re new to storage, then just watch the theory part of the lessons and the GUI configuration sections you need.
If later you need to know the best practice to configure a feature in your environment and want to see a  step-by-step configuration example, you know it’s all here.

The course is updated to cover the latest features and updates whenever a new version of ONTAP 9 is released by NetApp. The topics covered apply to all versions of the operating system.
A verifiable course certificate stating you have completed this advanced level NetApp ONTAP training will be provided at the end of the course. This will prove to potential future employers that you have the knowledge and skills necessary to be a real asset to their company.
As a student in this course, you will get an answer to every question you ask in the Ask Question section. I love interaction with my students- anything you want to know, please ask.
The course comes with an unconditional risk-free 30 day money-back guarantee – that’s my personal promise of your success.
Thank you for taking the time to read about the course. I hope you now have enough motivation to get into the learning right away. If so, click the button at the top of the page to enroll and get started!
