NetApp Beginner - Help!!!


I'm fairly new to NetApps productlines and storage management. I'm looking forward towards a PoC and eying a demo application (probably in Java) with Data ONTAP simulator.

Pls guide and help. A couple of basic and simple operations is what I need to do right now.

Re: NetApp Beginner - Help!!!

You could take a look at our getting started demo series for storage management.

vSims are available for download from our NOW web-site

Thanks Amrita!

But I'm eying a demo that should do probably the simplest file operation that Operations Manager is capable of doing (anything that you suggest) by using the NM SDK. The documentation is quite comprehensive and has already put me into a lot of confusion.

Any help on that front would be highly appreciated.

Hi rksindwani

Welcome to the communities - probbaly the best way to get started is to get a copy of the ONTAP Simulator and use System Manager 1.1 in order to familiarise yourself with the basic operations.

If you are an existing customer/partner you should be able to download both of these from NOW at the following links:

Systems Manager -

ONTAP Simulator -

This will get you started with the basics and Systems Manager will let you setup and perform the basic administration
