Implementing VMware vSphere on ONTAP (IMPVMWAR)

Overview

Duration: 2 days

In this 2 day, instructor led course, you learn how to implement NetApp’s Virtual Storage Console by deploying, managing, and protecting a VMware virtual infrastructure in both SAN and NAS environments using ONTAP. It also covers the implementation details for both traditional datastores and Virtual Volumes using Storage Policy Based Management. Monitoring of both traditional and VVOL performance characteristics are covered in lecture and hands on labs. Updated to align with ONTAP v9.4.

Objectives

  • Describe the components of NetApp storage and how they integrate into a vSphere environment
  • Identify the types of datastores created by the Virtual Storage Console (VSC)
  • Explain how VSC provides an automated datastore provisioning capability
  • Describe the VVol datastore management process
  • Create VVol datastores and VVols
  • Identify performance characteristics of VVols using VSC
  • Monitor virtual machines with VSC performance dashboard
  • List the customer implementations for backup, restore and cloning capability when integrating vSphere with NetApp
