Overview

On this accelerated VMware vSphere on NetApp (VVNA) course, you’ll learn the different methods to implement and manage the integrated VMware vSphere on NetApp ONTAP virtual infrastructure, while monitoring for strength and performance.

In just 5 days, you’ll gain hands-on experience using the vCenter NetApp plug-in and the Virtual Storage Console (VSC) to configure and monitor the VMware host settings, performing backups, restoration, and virtual machine cloning operations. You’ll also learn how to:

  • Optimise virtual machine performance and correct virtual disk misalignment.
  • Optimise NetApp Storage systems using Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP), FCoE, iSCSI, and NFS protocols.
  • Perform data storage networking for both iSCSI and NFS data stores

Through Firebrand’s Lecture | Lab | Review methodology, you’ll get access to courseware, certified instructors, and train in a distraction-free environment.

Audience

This course is ideal for:

  • Data Center Operations Professionals
  • Cloud Infrastructure Architects
  • Cloud Administrators
  • Cloud Engineers
  • Storage Administrators

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online courses
  2. You'll be certified in just 1 days. With us, you’ll be trained in record time
  3. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
