Missed HANOCON? We’re happy to share that Tim Ames and John Strandberg of Hawaii Tech Support have agreed to reprise their popular workshop from this year’s conference.
Learn to leverage free and low-cost tools and technologies to enhance organizational resilience. This interactive presentation dives into the free and reduced-price offerings from services like Microsoft’s Azure and Office 365, Amazon’s AWS, and Google Ad Grants. Break free from on-premise servers and non-redundant systems, while maintaining a presence in the world’s most available cloud data centers. Validated designs and best practices will be discussed. Watch a live build of an Azure environment capable of supporting up to 25 users for less than the cost of a single desktop computer. Bring your devices and laptops for an interactive experience.
From the business perspective, a comprehensive look at costs will allow organizations an understanding of budgeting, as well as provide insight into the configurations and risk management strategies for maintaining critical systems access and business continuity. This presentation is valuable for executives, board members and staff involved in budgeting, strategic planning, and IT implementation.
