Palm Beach IT Users Group mtg, 8 Apr 14

Quoting from our Co-ordinator, John Vighetto:

"I want to thank everyone that took the time to come out last night and see where we will be meeting from now on.

We had a great tour of Windstream’s switch room, which was conducted by Matt Pinto and Randall Ives. Very impressive layout!

Ms. Emily Hoch gave a very informative presentation on Windstream’s hosted Exchange solution, Disaster Recovery module, and the Mimecast product that provides email continuity and unlimited archiving.

For the paid annual members, I will have a recorded session for future viewing on our website.

I want to also thank Jennifer for continuing to host our user group meetings, as well as for providing us dinner from TooJays.

Some of us had our traditional MAM (Meeting After the Meeting) at Hurricane Bar & Grill. All I’m going to say is that we ended up closing the place down last night!"

I was very impressed with Windstream's Switch Room (DC).  As a former 'NOC-Rat' , I am very familiar with this area.  Sorry, we were very appropriately not allowed to take pictures in there. 

Presenter, Emily Hoch was very professional & knowledgeable.  Her use of a slide deck was minimal and avoidance of Power Point was refreshing.  Folks, if you want the meat and potatoes, you just gotta be there!

As John had stated, our MAM closed down the Hurricane Bar & Grill so this was a very productive evening Great drawing also !  Thanks John.
