Build your own NetApp ONTAP 9 Lab for free

I do not write this kind of posts very often, but the subject touches one of the most important parts of virtualization: Storage.
When your choice of storage is NetApp or you want to know more about managing NetApp, please read on.

How to Build a NetApp ONTAP 9 Lab” is a free available guide, written by Neil Anderson at Flackbox.com. This almost 120 pages step-by-step guide walks you through the setup of a lab consisting of two NetApp ONTAP Clusters, including clients, routers, IP address tables etc. The best part, you can build the entire lab for free, all you need is a PC with preferable 16 GB of RAM (if you want to run ONTAP v8.2, 8 GB RAM will do).

The lab outlined in the book is the same one, Neil uses for hands-on demonstrations which you can also find on www. flaxbox.com.
