Nutanix Data Services Administration (NDSA)

 

Course Overview

This course teaches you the administrative skills needed to install, configure, manage, and upgrade three different Nutanix storage solution products:

  • Nutanix Files - As part of this module, you will set up and manage Nutanix Files, a software-defined, scale-out file storage solution that provides a repository for unstructured data, such as home directories and departmental shares.
  • Nutanix Volumes - You will learn how Nutanix Volumes provides file storage for your physical workloads, with the same simplicity as virtualized workloads, consolidating infrastructure into a single unified platform.
