Implementing VMware vSphere on Data ONTAP (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


Lesson objectives help students become comfortable with the course, and also provide a means to evaluate learning. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
· Describe the VMware vSphere 6.0 virtualization solution
· Articulate the NetApp value proposition for integrating clustered Data ONTAP with vSphere 6.0
· Configure physical and virtual infrastructures
· Use the clustered Data ONTAP operating system to provision virtual infrastructure
· Create, migrate, and clone virtual machines
· Describe the Virtual Volumes datastore-management process
· Protect virtual infrastructure
· Monitor and optimize virtual infrastructure
· Describe best practice for connectivity, provisioning, data layout, and multipathing
· Describe how deduplication, compression, and thin provisioning provide storage savings in a virtual environment


The following training classes or equivalent knowledge are recommended:

· Clustered Data ONTAP 8.3 Administration (D8CADM)
