Napp-it is a browser based GUI for Oracle Solaris and the free Solaris forks (like OmniOS with an additional Linux version) that is limited to ZFS management. End-Users can download and use a free version even commercially without a capacity limit.

In these classes you will learn all topics necessary to build and run an enterprise deployment of Napp-it.

  • Storage Admin – Understand system and storage administration. Create and maintain pools and disks.
  • Replication and Sharing – Learn how to setup and maintain replication and snapshots. Share using cifs, afp, nfs and iscsi.
  • Architecture and Performance – Design systems for several use cases. Understand and monitor write log and read cache.
  • Advanced Admin – Setup advanced networking. Learn debug commands. Understand using directory for authentication.

Napp-it Admin Classes

Napp-it is not OpenSource but all sources are open (Perl). An additional Pro version adds a better GUI performance with acceleration by background agents and extra features like network replication, realtime monitoring or ACL/ user management with support and immediate access to bugfixes. The free version is updated from time to time or on security bugs.

Resellers and distributors who want to bundle or preconfigure napp-it or use napp-it as an OEM backend require a Pro license with a bundling allowance.
