Today's data center and cloud environments have converged infrastructures and management tools, and with the use of virtualization technologies like VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V, external SAN and NAS storage is becoming standard. It's no longer possible to get by as an IT professional by knowing only servers, networking or storage, you need an understanding of all three for your career to thrive.
This course will give you the knowledge you need to understand and work with SAN and NAS storage. You'll learn the theory of the SMB, CIFS, NFS, Fibre Channel, iSCSI, FCoE and NVMeOF protocols, and see how to configure the storage system and connect from the client with hands-on lab demonstrations.
The lessons are vendor agnostic so they're suitable no matter who the manufacturer of your storage system is. I've used NetApp as the storage system in the live demos but the information is relevant to all vendors.
As a student in this course, you will get an answer to every question you ask. I love interaction with my students- anything you want to know, please ask. You can contact me at [email protected]

Hi, I'm Neil Anderson. My main focus since 2007 has been development and delivery of technical training for large enterprise and service provider customers such as Cisco, NetApp, Verizon and IBM. I train the engineers who design and implement the largest Cloud and Data Center deployments throughout Asia Pacific and the rest of the world.
Prior to focusing on training I worked in the field for over 10 years in a variety of systems engineering roles. I love sharing my knowledge and can't wait to help you take your career to the next level.
