Editor’s note: This is the first post in new blog series by CBT Nuggets trainer Anthony Sequeira that will cover IT storage technology.
Are you like me, and so many of us in IT today? Did you start in the client/server computing area, mastering technologies such as Windows Server and Windows Desktop? Perhaps, from there you moved into the network infrastructure discipline, mastering technologies such as Cisco and Juniper.
But there is another key area in IT today, and it’s not the servers and clients or the plumbing that connects them all, it’s the storage that provides the data these systems constantly request. In fact, we’re wanting to store more data than ever before, and we expect this data to be available with a click of the mouse no matter where we are located and what device we are using. More and more, individuals and organizations are watching as their digital storage needs pile up to previously unimaginable heights.
CBT Nuggets recognizes the need to train IT staffs in the area of storage, and that is why you will enjoy more and more courses from us such as CompTIA Storage+ and NetApp NCSA. Just like other main areas of IT, storage is evolving. And those IT pros who do not keep up with those changes might just be in danger of going the way of the dino. But whether it’s a NAS or SAN, Fibre Channel or Fibre Channel over Ethernet, or even virtualization or cloud, CBT Nuggets has you covered with the latest cutting-edge training.
In this series of blog posts, I will be introducing you to the some of most advanced and exciting concepts in IT storage today. From virtualization to the cloud, join me as we tour this very hot area of IT.

Anthony, do you recommend going for the CompTIA Storage+ certification before attempting NetApp NCSA certification?
It would be great – but certainly not required. In fact – there is a bunch of carry over. But if storage is very new for you – the repetition would be excellent.
