Angelbeat is hosting this comprehensive 1/2 day seminar, where the keynote by world renown Google cloud solution engineer Joe Intrakamhang covers private/public/hybrid cloud and infrastructure/data center architecture, and when to expand internally and purchase more storage/network equipment, versus renting capabilities/services from third party/hosted providers. Technical experts from Dell, Nutanix, Glue, Silver Peak, Cohesity, Carbonite and Expedient are also featured speakers on hyperconverged infrastructure, storage/mobility, mobility/thin clients, SD-WAN and network management. Just great content on today's (and tomorrow's) top issues.

CEO Ron Gerber's 7 Reasons to attend Angelbeat
As one Walmart attendee states, "Of all the seminars I attend, your format is by far the best. Brief informative talks from vendors, followed by one-on-one time at their booth to find out more. I am out of the office for less than a day yet I have access to all the different solutions. This year I will follow up with two vendors." As another IT Director commented, "Thanks for hosting a very informative meeting with vendors that tied in well; it was an integrated picture of technologies that work together to create a complete infrastructure solution for the workplace."

Join your peers from KeyBank, Cleveland Clinic, Steris, PolyOne, J.M. Smucker, Redwood Living, Walsh University, Cleveland Public Schools and many more organizations who are confirmed attendees.

Every attendee receives breakfast and lunch, complimentary WiFi, plus 4 CPE credit hours towards your CISSP or other certification. There are drawings for $100 gift cards and other prizes, at both the start and end of the event (must be present to win).

Agenda

7:30 - 8:40: Registration Begins, Full Hot Breakfast and Coffee Served, Exhibit Area Open with Product Demonstrations, Time For Peer Networking/Interaction


8:40 - 9:00: Software Defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN) with Silver Peak
Geographically distributed enterprises are embracing SD-WAN at an accelerating pace. As applications continue to move to the cloud, networking professionals are quickly realizing that traditional WANs were never architected for a dynamic, internet-based environment and recognize that backhauling traffic from the branch to headquarters doesn't make sense. Furthermore, end users often find their business apps run faster over their home Internet service, or even on their mobile device.

During this technical session on this increasingly important topic, Ken Kirkman from Silver Peak will help you better understand how and why to deploy SD-WAN in your network infrastructure, covering the following topics:

- Address and overcome concerns around overall network performance, reliability and security
- Harden broadband internet connectivity for a secure SD-WAN
- Extend micro-segmentation from the data center across the WAN to securely connect users to applications and meet compliance requirements
- Eliminate latency and performance limitations of broadband
- Prioritize mission-critical applications and ensure that non-business/consumer applications that are bandwidth-intensive, such as Netflix, do not impact customer service
- Connect the branch securely and directly to SaaS applications and trusted web services using broadband significantly increasing performance
- Interoperate with existing routers and WAN infrastructure to migrate to SD-WAN at your own pace, or replace branch routers with an SD-WAN alternative for greenfield installations and router refresh projects
- Simplify management, configuration and expansion of branch offices with centralized management and zero-touch provisioning to lower OPEX and reduce configuration errors
- Lower overall WAN costs by up to 90%

9:00 - 9:20: Multi-Vendor Network Infrastructure Complexity; How to Simplify with Glue Networks
Typical networks have become increasingly complex and require constant attention, especially when there is a multi-vendor architecture/configuration.

To greatly simplify network management, Glue Networks created Gluware, a software-based orchestration platform that reduces life cycle costs and boosts network agility. Richard Long from Glue Networks will demonstrate how network operations teams can simplify tasks like switch management, ACL, QoS, firewall rules and many other time consuming functions. Gluware makes the network work for operations - not the other way around.

9:20 - 9:40: From Traditional to Next-Generation: Demystifying Hyperconvergence and Enterprise Clouds with Nutanix
As enterprises look beyond traditional IT workloads including cloud-native applications and DevOps, they should consider how technologies such as software-defined infrastructure and cloud can drive real-world benefits.

During this informative session featuring Scott Ryden of Nutanix, learn how IT can move away from traditional environments to hyperconverged infrastructure and onward to Enterprise Clouds. These new platforms can handle all your challenging applications and business needs, with clear agility, productivity and availability/security benefits. At the end of this session, you'll:

- Acquire proven strategies for delivering frictionless IT services while retaining the precise control your business needs
- Understand new capabilities that tear down IT silos and unify the technology stack
- Learn best practices in virtualization, application design and cloud technologies

9:40 - 10:00: Secondary Data Storage Sprawl Solutions, Answer to Ransomware, with Cohesity
Secondary data consumes about 80% of enterprise storage capacity and imposes a huge burden on enterprise IT budgets. Secondary data is traditionally stored on a complicated patchwork of point appliances for backups, files, objects, test/dev copies, and analytics data. This infrastructure is fragmented, complex to manage, and inefficient.

The Cohesity DataPlatform consolidates and manages all your secondary data at web scale – including backups, test/dev copies, files, analytics data, and objects. DataPlatform provides distributed storage with best-in-class space efficiency, efficient copy data management, and native cloud integration. The platform incorporates data management functions for converged data protection, in-place analytics, and copy data management to automate DevOps workflows.

In mid-May more than 100,000 organizations, mainly in Europe and Asia, were hit with the devastating WannaCry ransomware attack. To recover from such an attack, the answer is not paying Bitcoin demands but instead restoring the most recent data. Click here to watch Angelbeat CEO Ron Gerber's video commentary plus more insights on this critically important topic will be covered by Cohesity.

10:00 - 10:20: Disaster happens, DRaaS and Cloud-Based Backup with Carbonite
Cloud-based solutions for Backup/Disaster Recovery are becoming increasingly relevant. Learn from industry leader Carbonite on how DR as a Service (DRaaS) can provide peace-of-mind and ensure that your data is always available and backed, regardless of any problems at your physical location.

10:20 - 10:40: Business Needs Relief Through Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS): How Juggling Too Much Leads to Not Enough with Expedient
In today’s world, IT can be a 24/7/365 job. The nonstop demands in the age of digital transformation mean companies’ IT teams are stretched thin, juggling too many tasks that divert focus from their core business objectives – resulting in misused resources, wasted time and lost revenue.

During this technical and informative briefing, technology strategist John White will talk about how partnering with a trusted Infrastructure-as-a-Service provider such as Expedient can help alleviate the stress of everyday tasks on businesses’ IT teams.
