Free ‘How to Build NetApp ONTAP 9 Lab Guide’

October 27, 2016

NetApp ONTAP 9, the latest version of the operating system for the popular FAS storage platforms went General Availability this week. If you want to get a first look and hands on practice with the new OS then you can download a free ‘How to Build a NetApp ONTAP 9 Lab for Free‘ eBook from our instructor Neil Anderson.

The eBook walks you through setting up a fully networked NetApp lab featuring two NetApp clusters with Windows and Linux clients. Best of all you can deploy and run it all in software on your laptop for free. The guide explains where to find the software for free and has step by step instructions with screenshots about how to configure everything.

You can have the entire lab up and running in around an hour, and from there you can work on NetApp storage just as if you had your own physical system. Nearly all features are supported and you can work with both the System Manager GUI and the command line. This gives you great value if you want to test features out before running them in your production environment, or if you’re studying for the NetApp Certified Data Administrator NCDA or NetApp Certified Implementation Engineer NCIE exams.

You can download the eBook from Neil’s blog at http://www.flackbox.com/netapp-simulator/ where you can also find loads of NetApp tutorial videos with more being added weekly.

Neil also has a free Introduction to SAN and NAS Storage video course available where he provides an overview of Fibre Channel, iSCSI, FCoE, NFS and CIFS/SMB storage. It’s pitched directly at systems and network engineers who need to learn the core details of storage as quickly as possible.

The blog has mostly NetApp content right now but wider Cloud and Data Center technologies such as Cisco, FlexPod, AWS and IBM SoftLayer will be added in future.
