Basic NetApp Configuration and Administration Training (BNCA)

Basic NetApp Configuration and Administration Training (BNCA)

Introduction:

For students that are new to enterprise storage concepts and NetApp, BNCA is a good place to begin. This 2-day course introduces students introductory concepts found in both Data ONTAP 7-mode and Clustered Data ONTAP. Some of the concepts covered through instructor led discussions and hands-on labs are how to create aggregates, virtual interfaces, snapshots, volumes, qtrees, and storage virtual machines.

Customize It:

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
