Implementing VMware vSphere on Data ONTAP Training (IMPVMVS)


Implementing VMware vSphere on Data ONTAP Training Course Description

Implementing VMware vSphere on Data ONTAP Training (IMPVMVS) is a 3 day instructor led course where you will learn how to protect the virtual infrastructure in SAN and NAS environments as well learning how to manage storage at the virtual-machine level.

Updated features:

● VMware vSphere 6
● Virtual Storage console,
● Virtual Volumes (VVOLs)
● Knowledge Byte demo videos

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.
