NetApp Certified Data Management Administrator

Certification Description


NCDA (NetApp Certified Data Management Administrator)


As a NetApp Certified Data Management Administrator, you will have proven skills in performing in-depth support, administrative functions, and performance management for CIFS, NFS, and FCP for SCSI or iSCSI for TCP/IP protocols on a NetApp storage appliance running the Data ONTAP® operating system in NFS and Windows® (CIFS) multiprotocol environments. You will also be able to implement active-active controller configuration and SyncMirror® to ensure continuous data availability and rapid recovery of data in the event of a disaster, and use the SnapMirror®, SnapRestore®, and SnapVault® products to manage and protect mission-critical data.



NCDA is a prerequisite for NCIE certification. If you are a member of the Authorized Support Partner (ASP) or Contracted Delivery Partner (CDP) programs, NCDA then becomes a prerequisite for obtaining NCSA certification. NCDA is a prerequisite for all Authorized Professional Service Partner (APSP) Solution Areas. NCDA is not a prerequisite for internal NetApp Sales Engineers.

Logos and certificates will be granted to those individuals who successfully pass both exams.
