ONTAP MetroCluster Installation Training (MCCIIW)

Introduction:

ONTAP MetroCluster Installation Training (MCCIIW) Course Description

MetroCluster software is a unique high-availability and disaster-recovery solution. In this advanced ONTAP MetroCluster Installation Training (MCCIIW) course, you learn how to install, configure and administer a MetroCluster environment. Hands-on labs, available in the ONTAP 9 environment, allow you to practice setting up the configuration, identify component failures and practice recovery steps.

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.
