IMPVMWAR - Implementing VMware vSphere on ONTAP 9.9

In this course, you learn how to manage VMware vSphere virtualization solutions with NetApp ONTAP data management software. You learn how to use NetApp ONTAP tools for VMware vSphere and other ONTAP solutions to deploy, manage, and protect the VMware virtual infrastructure on ONTAP based storage systems in both SAN and NAS environments. The course introduces you to the ONTAP tools Virtual Storage Console (VSC), NetApp VMware vSphere API for Storage Awareness (VASA) Provider, and Storage Replication Adapter (SRA). You also learn how to use the NetApp SnapCenter Plug-in for VMware vSphere to configure backup and recovery.
