Implementing Microsoft SharePoint Server on NetApp Storage Systems (MSSP)

Implementing Microsoft SharePoint Server on NetApp Storage Systems (MSSP)

Overview

Duration: 5 Days

Learn how to implement your Microsoft® SharePoint® solution on NetApp storage for maximum benefit. In this course, you examine the components of the SharePoint solution on NetApp storage and explore how to configure the components for maximum benefit. Through hands-on exercises, you migrate SharePoint data to NetApp storage and leverage SnapManager® for SharePoint (SMSP) to back up and restore the data. You use Remote Blob Storage (RBS) to optimize the storage of SharePoint data on NetApp storage. You also recover and monitor data, and troubleshoot the SharePoint on NetApp solution.

Objectives

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

  • Identify the main components of SharePoint collaboration software
  • Diagram three prevalent SharePoint farm topology examples (small, medium, large)
  • Describe the main SnapManager for SharePoint (SMSP) concepts and components
  • Describe the benefits of deploying SharePoint on NetApp storage systems
  • Prepare NetApp storage systems to store SharePoint data
  • Use SMSP to migrate SharePoint data onto NetApp storage
  • Use SMSP to back up and restore SharePoint data on NetApp storage
  • Explain the concepts that are involved in optimizing storage of SharePoint data on NetApp storage
  • Configure Real-Time Storage Manager, Scheduled Storage Manager, Archive Manager, and Connector to move binary large objects (BLOBs) from the Microsoft SQL Server® database to a CIFS share on NetApp storage
  • Describe the disaster-recovery options for a SharePoint deployment on NetApp storage
  • Explain the role of virtualization for a SharePoint deployment on NetApp storage
  • Use monitoring and troubleshooting tactics for SharePoint solutions on NetApp storage
