Description

**For more in-depth instruction on implementing and managing a VMware vSphere environment on NetApp, see our VMware vSphere on NetApp (VVNA) course.**

Learn how to implement VMware vSphere virtualization solutions on NetApp® Data ONTAP® 7-Mode and clustered Data ONTAP. In this course, you learn how to deploy VMware virtual infrastructure on NetApp storage. The exercises use clustered Data ONTAP.

Who should attend

NetApp employees, channel partners, and customers

 

Course Objectives

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe VMware vSphere 5.1 virtualization solutions
  • Configure physical and virtual infrastructures
  • Provision the virtual infrastructure with Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode and Data ONTAP operating in Cluster-Mode storage
  • Create, migrate, and clone virtual machines (VMs)
  • Protect the virtual infrastructure
  • Monitor and optimize the virtual infrastructure
  • Articulate the NetApp value proposition when integrating Data ONTAP with vSphere 5.x
  • List and describe the best practices for connectivity, provisioning, data layout, and multipathing
  • Describe the storage savings in a virtual environment that result from deduplication, compression, and thin provisioning
  • Identify some troubleshooting scenarios in a virtualized environment and articulate the solutions for resolving the issues
 

Topics Covered

Module 1 vSphere Storage

  • Explain how VMware vSphere is a virtualization platform
  • Describe the datastore categories and their applications

  • Explain how to migrate virtual machines (VMs)

Module 6 vSphere Optimization

  • Clone VMs by using the NetAppVirtual Storage Console (VSC)
  • Describe the reasons why virtualized disks are misaligned and the methods for correcting this problem
  • Discuss optimization techniques for VMware Virtual Machine File System (VMFS) datastores
  • Discuss optimization techniques for NFS datastores
  • Identify the storage I/O control features in VMware
  • Identify the features of OnCommand Insight Assure

Module 7 vSphere Protection

  • Describe the issues that you might encounter with data protection in a virtualized environment
  • List methods to backup and restore virtual machines and datastores with NetApp storage
  • Identify the features of NetApp backup and restoration in virtualized environments
