MetroCluster software is a unique high-availability and disaster-recovery solution. In this advanced course, you learn how to install, configure and administer a MetroCluster environment. Hands-on labs, available in the ONTAP 9 environment, allow you to practice setting up the configuration, identify component failures and practice recovery steps.

Before attending, delegates should have attended the 'ONTAP Cluster Administration and Data Protection Bundle (ONTAP 9.7) (CDOTDP9)' course.

Alternatively, they could have attended the 'ONTAP Cluster Administration (ONTAP 9.7) (ONTAP9ADM)' and 'ONTAP Data Protection Administration (ONTAP 9.7) (DATAPROT9)' courses individually.

In addition, it would be useful for the delegate to have basic SAN knowledge and Completion of ONTAP PS Professional Compliance Program or an equivalent program

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

  • Describe the major architectural components of a MetroCluster environment in ONTAP 9
  • Cable nodes, back-end FC switches and FibreBridge devices
  • Set up bridges and back-end FC switches
