DevOps in the Data Center Training (DODC)

DevOps in the Data Center Training (DODC)


DevOps in the Data Center Training (DODC) with Hands-on Labs (Online, Onsite and Classroom Live)

This unique DevOps in the Data Center Training (DODC) course gives you an introduction to some of the leading open-source tools used to virtualize, manage and automate today’s data center. You will also learn some of the key NetApp features that support the DevOps tools. More than fifty percent (50%) of this course is comprised of real world hands-on labs focused on using the important tools taught in class.

You will learn to use:

  • Docker (containerization): Containers can be thought of as very light-weight Virtual Machines. Users can generate containers in a few seconds instead of the minutes it can take to launch a VM and do so at very little cost. Each container creates an isolated execution environment enabling software to run in a predefined state. This greatly facilitates the process of combining and using software from different sources and simplifies the deployment and installation of software.
  • Kubernetes (orchestration): Kubernetes manages “fleets” of containers created using Docker and enables your application to scale from 1 to many containers based on user demand. Kubernetes also automatically distributes containers across multiple execution nodes for increased performance and parallelism, and replaces any failed instances to ensure reliability.
  • Ansible (automation): Ansible is an advanced multi-system scripting tool that deploys configuration changes to many remote systems.
  • Cloud Volumes ONTAP: This is a “virtual instance” of ONTAP that runs as a VM in a cloud environment. You can easily migrate storage to the cloud while retaining all of the features of ONTAP you need: snapshots, SnapMirror, and so on.

Duration: 2 days
