Today's data center and cloud environments have converged infrastructures and management tools, and with the advent of virtualization technologies like VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V, external SAN and NAS storage is becoming standard. It's no longer possible to get by as an IT professional by knowing only servers, networking or storage, you need an understanding of all three for your career to thrive. This course will give you the knowledge you need to understand SAN and NAS storage. You'll learn the theory of the CIFS (SMB), NFS, Fibre Channel, iSCSI and FCoE protocols, and see how to configure the storage system and connect from the client with hands-on lab demonstrations. The lessons are vendor agnostic so they're suitable no matter who the manufacturer of your storage system is. I've used NetApp as the storage system in the live demos but the information is relevant to all vendors.
