This looks like an interesting webinar. I won’t be able to make this one, which really sucks :(
EMAIL AS A MANAGED APPLIANCE
Webinar. October 25, 2006
8:30am Pacific, 11:30am Eastern, 4:30pm UK, 5:30pm CET. One hour duration
Companies are struggling with increasing demands on IT staff to keep enterprise email systems up and running. IT administrators must cope with an ever-expanding landscape of email technologies that add anti-virus, anti-spam, backup and restore, high availability, disaster recovery, monitoring, storage management, unified messaging, and compliance requirements. There just isn?t enough time in the day–not to mention those 2 a.m. wake-up calls when the email system goes down.
A new option is the use of appliances that manage and/or run the email environment. In this free webinar, Ferris analyst Lee Benjamin looks at the evolution of managed appliances in the messaging space and explores why IT administrators are adopting them for both single-purpose devices and entire messaging systems.
In addition, Keith McCall of Azaleos describes why companies like K2 Sports, Zumiez, and Allegheny Technologies have adopted a managed appliance for their email infrastructures and how it has helped them reduce the cost and complexity of email. Keith?s presentation includes a demonstration of Azaleos OneServer, a managed email appliance for Microsoft Exchange.
