NetApp ONTAP Fundamentals

Getting to grips with NetApp's ONTAP

Created by Peter Van Der Weerd, Last Updated 06-Dec-2020, Language:English

What Will I Get ?

  • Be a junior Admin on ONTAP
  • Know about File Storage and Block Storage
  • Feel confident to start more advanced courses


  • Basic Computer Fundamentals & Terminologies
  • A computer installed with Windows/Linux /OS X
  • Minimum of 8GB RAM
  • Internet connection
  • VMware Workstation Software or Virtual Box Software


In this training you will be introduced to the NetApp ONTAP environment. You will mainly work from the command-line. We will start from scratch and no ONTAP knowledge or experience is required. By the end of this training you will have a good understanding of the main functions and protocols and should be able to manage an ONTAP cluster, at a junior admin level to the least.

The training is constructed of two levels, the first level is absolutely basic. Once you are up to speed, we will enter level two and you will work with more advanced features of the topics that are selected for this training. 

The main topics are: Disks and Aggregates, Volumes, Networking, and Protocols. These main topics are presented at the two different levels. Then there will be some additional topics like WAFL and snapshots.

Also, all the texts that are used in the presentation will be available as downloadable pdf files in the resource section of the course.

I have tried to limit every lecture to 10 minutes. Sometimes I went a little further, sometimes I ran a little short. But my intention is to keep it tight and neat.

I hope you will have a valuable experience.

And whenever you have questions or remarks, please contact me.

I have added a bonus module - Lecture 21 -in which I describe and demonstrate the setup of the Netapp Simulator in VirtualBox instead of in VMWare.

In the first module you will set it up in workstation or fusion...but if you like you can also set it up in VBOX.
