Neil Anderson has produced a ‘How to Build a NetApp ONTAP Lab… For Free’ eBook which he would like to share with you. In it he provide complete step-by-step instructions, with screenshots, about how to build a fully ready and complete NetApp simulator lab from scratch, using NetApp’s latest operating system ONTAP 9.
Where to find all the software for free, how to build the NetApp simulators, the Windows and Linux clients, the VMware setup and how to configure the networking.
The lab features two NetApp simulator ONTAP 9 clusters, Windows and Linux clients and separate IP subnets to make it as close to a real world environment as possible.
You’ll have the entire lab up and running in an hour, and you won’t need to figure anything out along the way because he show you everything.
You can build the lab at no cost, all you need is a PC to run it on. He hope you can make use of it to expand your storage knowledge and further your career.
The lab build outlined in the book is the same one he uses for the hands-on demonstrations in my videos. You can use the instructions in the free eBook to build your own lab and follow along with me as you watch.
Almost all NetApp features can be practised and tested using the lab. You can use it as a study tool or for testing features before deploying them in your production environment.
All you need to do to get the eBook is sign up to my mailing list which he’ll use to keep you in the loop with information he think you’ll find valuable. he’ll just send occasional updates and he promise no spam ever, only information which he’d like to receive himself.
If you know anybody else who would like the NetApp simulator lab eBook, please spread the love and send them over here to www.flackbox.com rather than sharing it directly yourself. Thanks!
