Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Peter Grant, and welcome to my course, Planning and Deploying Nutanix Files. I'm a systems engineering manager at Nutanix, and this is the second in the Nutanix series of courses. Imagine what it would be like if you never had to undertake a file storage appliance or NAS refresh along with all the hassle of data migration ever again. What if your storage appliances always had the latest features and improved as technology evolved? Well, that's the benefit of software-based solutions such as Nutanix Files. In this course, we're going to deploy, configure, and show you some of the power of Nutanix Files. We're going to look at planning and deploying the core file server, learning how to architect the best share structure, scaling and upgrading the solution, and gaining visibility into the data. By the end of this course, you'll feel confident in what Nutanix Files is, how it's configured, and what features and benefits it offers over and above traditional file-serving solutions. Before beginning this course, you should have some awareness of the Core Nutanix HCI stack. But if you don't, don't worry. There's an introductory course on Pluralsight called Nutanix: The Big Picture, and it's perfect to get you stated. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Nutanix Files with this Pluralsight course, Planning and Deploying Nutanix Files.
