The March community night will take place on the 12th of March at the Microsoft Campus in Bryanston. It will be a 15:30 for 16:00 start, to finish at 17:30.

This month we will be hosting Veeam to run through their new Backup & Replication Cloud Edition. This will consist of live demonstrations around the product, a short summary of its features are below.

“Protecting your business against catastrophic data loss is vital, and offsite storage is the key. Although tapes are often used for long-term, secure data storage, public storage clouds provide the reliability you need without the cost or complexity associated with tapes.

Veeam Backup & Replication Cloud Edition makes offsite backup to the cloud easy and lets you use Windows Azure or any other leading public storage cloud provider.”

Agenda:

  1. Public cloud storage options
  2. Cloud cost estimation
  3. Encryption
  4. Bandwidth scheduling
  5. Compression
  6. Job notifications

We will host this event via Lync for those that are not able to attend in person. You will find the recurring meeting invite attached at the bottom of this blog post, this will save the date of the evening in your calendar until December 2013.

We look forward to your attendance and more importantly you participation in the event, with the informal agenda it is key for your interaction to make a success of the evening.

Afterwards we will also have a networking opportunity with complimentary Beer & Pizza at ‘The Office’

Cheers,

Morgan
