Hey Guys, I just got a call from a recruiter to be a NetApp SAN administrator. I've actually never used NetApp, however I am a SAN Administrator right now for a company called RAIDix. Anyone ever heard of it? I don't think so. But I have all the tools to be a SAN administrator. I did some research and I found that they have a NetApp certification. The company that was offering a job as a SAN Admin also mentioned IBM, Dell EMC, and VMware. The Dell EMC and IBM are just storage vendors correct? I think the company wants NetApp experience mostly. I didn't really have much experience with Netapp. I guess I could have lied but I honestly didn't know what Dell EMC was until after the interview. I wish I could have researched before the interview... So as a SAN administrator currently I believed I could have picked up on NetApp, Dell EMC and IBM storage quickly. To be honest, I didn't even think there was any other job opportunities out there for SAN administrators. The market I currently work in is so small - I only support a handle-full of businesses that each have less than 30 clients connecting to the SAN. Therefore, I thought my specific job qualifications are only designed for my current tiny market. But I guess a SAN administrator job comes along every 6 months or so just with much bigger vendors involved. So I'm actually slightly relieved not to have to jump into the networking world in order to get out of my current job. I make very little money for my skill set here, although I am happy with my job, I'm full of fear that this company wont be making enough money to pay it's bills. So that's why I'm looking to get another job. I was and still am studying for my CCNA and was going to jump into a network administrator role, in order to achieve a higher paid position. But now that I know SAN Admin jobs exist, do you guys think I should study for a NETAPP certification? The SAN admin job pays more than most networking jobs, so it's pretty cool to be highly specialized, however it seems there are many many more networking jobs available. Yet, I have a lot of experience with SAN administration already and only a little with networking. What are your guys thoughts?
