Neil Anderson, from Flackbox, has realize a free ebook on ‘How to Build a NetApp ONTAP Lab… For Free’. In it he provide a complete step-by-step instructions, with screenshots, about how to build a fully ready and complete NetApp simulator lab from scratch, using NetApp’s latest operating system ONTAP 9.

Almost all NetApp features can be practised and tested using the lab. You can use it as a study tool or for testing features before deploying them in your production environment.

The book is available on this site.

It’s only based on Workstation (as virtualization platform), but of course could be adapted to other hypervisor.
