Implementing VMware vSphere on Data ONTAP

2 Days

Description

About this Course

Implementing VMware vSphere on Data ONTAP (IMPVMVS) is a 3 day instructor led course where you will learn how to protect the virtual infrastructure in SAN and NAS environments as well learning how to manage storage at the virtual-machine level.

Updated features:

  • VMware vSphere 6
  • Virtual Storage console,
  • Virtual Volumes (VVOLs)
  • Knowledge Byte demo videos

Who should attend

NetApp employees, channel partners, and customers

What You Will Learn

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe the VMware vSphere 6.0 virtualization solution
  • Articulate the NetApp value proposition for integrating clustered Data ONTAP with vSphere 6.0
  • Configure physical and virtual infrastructures
  • Use the clustered Data ONTAP operating system to provision virtual infrastructure
  • Create, migrate, and clone virtual machines
  • Describe the Virtual Volumes datastore-management process
  • Protect virtual infrastructure
  • Monitor and optimize virtual infrastructure
