Learn NetApp storage with my free online NetApp training videos.

You can find my NetApp tutorials and NetApp training videos on this page. Full descriptions with screenshots are also included with each video if you prefer the content in a text format. If you’re studying for certification like the NetApp Certified Data Administrator or NetApp Certified Implementation Engineer NCIE exams then you’ve come to the right place. I don’t just want to give you the book smarts though, I’m going to show you how to actually design and implement a real-world deployment using best practices.

You can follow along with the examples and get hands-on practice for yourself by downloading my ‘How to Build a NetApp Lab for Free’ eBook.
