Re: Netapp Certification

Greetings,  The certification I would recommend to get familiar with storage is the NetApp Certified Storage Associate. The learning path provides knowledge and hands on experience for performing basic administration of both Data 7-Mode and clustered Data ONTAP. You can find more information on it and other certifications on our website here: http://www.netapp.com/us/services-support/university/certification.aspx   Hope this helps.  Ivel

Re: Netapp Certification

Thanks ,

Is it NS0-145 Certification ?

Re: Netapp Certification

Also will it cover CIFS syllabus?

Re: Netapp Certification

Correct. That is the exam.

After that, you can work your way up the chart. What FAS system are you administering? What OS version are you running, 7-Mode or Clustered Data ONTAP? You can get the next certification for the OS and finally NCIE for either backup\DR or SAN technologies if you're running FC\iSCSI\FCoE.

Thanks sir

Netapp Certification

So, It is possible to take exam NS0-155 or NS0-156 directly ?

Re: Netapp Certification

Yes, you can take the NCDA 155 and\or 156 directly. There is no requirement to get the NCSA (145) first.
