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."

Every attendee receives meals, complimentary WiFi, plus 4 CPE credit hours towards your CISSP or other certification. There are drawings for gift cards and other prizes at the end.

Agenda

7:30 - 9:00: Registration Begins, Breakfast Served, Exhibit Area Open with Product Demonstrations, Time For Peer Networking/Interaction

9:00 - 9:20: 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, 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%

9:20 - 9:40: Get Control of your End Points in a Cloud-Driven Virtual World with IGEL
Organizations generally have a comprehensive strategy for servers, storage, networking and applications, yet often overlook the endpoint. In this informative session featuring Joshua Robinson, Presales Engineer at IGEL, you will learn why and how to develop your endpoint strategy.

Specific topics include:
- Gain insight into options available for existing desktop, laptop and thin client assets
- Learn what to look for in enterprise device management
- Explore the capabilities and limitations of a virtual desktop/application solution
- Understand the costs associated with thin client devices

9:40 - 10:00: Stress-Free Backup Storage from ExaGrid
If the time you spend managing backups could be better spent on other more important IT initiatives, learn how ExaGrid’s disk backup with data deduplication appliances solve the problems that have plagued backup storage since the very beginning of IT as well as the newer problems caused by virtualization and explosive data growth.

ExaGrid’s unique landing zone and scale-out architecture provide the fastest backups, restores, and offsite tape copies as well as VM boots in seconds to minutes versus hours with other solutions. ExaGrid keeps the backup window fixed in length even as data grows at a reduced cost up front and over time. This session will be presented by Dan Zuccarelli, Senior Systems Engineer with ExaGrid.

10:00 - 10:20: IP Pathways

Coffee/Snack Break, Exhibit Area Open, Peer Networking, Product Demonstrations

All free attendees must be pre-approved in advance by Angelbeat. Angelbeat reserves the right to accept or reject a free pass request at its sole discretion. As a general policy Angelbeat does not offer free passes to individuals at companies that are looking to sell their products/services to the end user personnel described above, who attend our events at no charge. If you fall in this category and would still like to attend then the fee is $150/person.

Each sponsoring company/exhibitor handles its own raffle prize drawing; Angelbeat itself has nothing to do with these prizes and attendees are not automatically entered for any raffle prize drawing.
