If you work in IT, storage is something you’re probably hearing about a lot these days. So why not dive in? Start learning about NetApp storage technology with a new CBT Nuggets training course, “NetApp Certified Storage Associate (NCSA) NS0-145.” Trainer Anthony Sequeira covers topics such as server virtualization, calculating usable disk space, and more, in this 6-hour course.
We caught up with Anthony to get some his thoughts and tips about the course.
Q: Why should companies train their IT professionals in this technology? What value does it bring?
IT storage is a more important aspect of the enterprise setting with every passing day, as more and more data is considered critical — and must be stored securely and delivered with the highest levels of efficiency. Virtualization and cloud changes make this course even more relevant.
Q: From a student-perspective, what did you keep in mind when creating this course?
Two major things: Making sure they can pass this tricky, tricky exam, and making sure they can jump on a NetApp appliance or crack open a GUI and feel very at ease right away. I also wanted to ensure they understood as much of the NetApp portfolio as possible.
Q: Any outside-of-the-box tips for students to get the most out of your course?
Take my notes I provided in the NuggetLabs files area and add to them! That end product will be worth its weight in Bitcoin!
Q: What’s one real-world application someone can expect to use, thanks to this course?
Abstracting the physical storage to the degree that storage management is seamless.
Q: What was your favorite Nugget to create?
My favorite Nugget was the “Up Close and Personal” Nugget where Kurt Engle (CBT Nuggets) and I were filmed by Steve Barth (CBT Nuggets) as we toured the physical FlexPod.
Q: What roadblocks did you come across when creating this training and how did you overcome them?
The exam was a bit all over the place in level of difficulty. I did a lot of research with my notes to help students.
Q: What’s the ONE thing you hope learners take away from this training?
Storage can be fun and profitable!
