Implementing Microsoft SQL Server 2012 on NetApp Storage Systems Training (MSSQL)

Introduction:

Implementing Microsoft SQL Server 2012 on NetApp Storage Systems Training (MSSQL) Hands-on

Learn to implement Microsoft® SQL Server 2012 on clustered Data ONTAP storage. This solution-based Implementing Microsoft SQL Server 2012 on NetApp Storage Systems Training (MSSQL) course focuses on Windows Server Failover Clustering, Microsoft SQL Server AlwaysOn Availability Groups, SnapDrive for Windows, and SnapManager for SQL Server. In this Implementing Microsoft SQL Server 2012 on NetApp Storage Systems Training (MSSQL) course, you will learn how to size and prepare clustered Data ONTAP storage virtual machines (also known as Vservers), install and configure SnapDrive for Windows, install and initialize SnapManager for SQL Server, move SQL databases to NetApp storage, backup and restore SQL databases, create Availability Groups, and troubleshoot common misconfigurations. By the end of this course, you will be able to confidently implement SQL Server 2012 on clustered Data ONTAP storage.

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.

Audience/Target Group

This training is for those who design and deploy NetApp storage systems in a Microsoft SQL Server environment.
