NetApp Video Tutorials

By on 03/10/2012.

To all my readers,

I’m starting on a project to do a series of netapp video tutorials covering topics such as…

  • Virtual Storage Console
  • Backup & Recovery
  • SnapManager product line overview
  • vSphere Best Practices
  • Thin Provisioning
  • Deduplication

…and others.

Consider this an open opportunity and call for requests!  What would you like to see?  Are you a new-to-NetApp customer?  Considering NetApp storage and have questions and how something works?  Are you an existing customer that still has questions around how to make the best of your investment?  Are you a partner that would like some guidance around caveats of certain products?

This is your chance!  Let me know in the comments below what you would like to see a walkthrough or whiteboard session about!

UPDATE!  You can see the beginnings of the collection live on the site here:

This will continue to be updated as new content is created!  Please continue to submit your ideas!  Thanks!


  • Grreat idea! Thanks….Using TSM as backup destination?

    • Ivor,

      Thanks for the suggestion!  Unfortunately, I don’t specifically have a TSM setup to produce a video/demo with, but it is certainly on my list to talk about setting up the NetApp environment to accomodate ANY backup target.

    Nice. Like to see the NetApp structure explained such as what are aggregates, volumes etc. and how they relate to each other.

    • Excellent idea!  A good ol’ NetApp 101!  I’ll add it to the list!  Thanks!
