August 19, 2010 PSSBS Meeting

For our August, 2010 Puget Sound Small Business Server User Group meeting, Kevin Brown, Vice President, Sales & Marketing for Symform, will be presenting and demonstrating their new v2.0 version of their affordable online data storage and disaster recovery solution.


Symform claims the new version is 10X faster and full of new features including:


- Flexible Contribution – contribute from anywhere – including the MSP’s office


- Resource Groups – pool bandwidth and storage across multiple nodes


- Instant Restore – keep a hot copy of the client’s data at the MSP’s office, the owner’s home, wherever…


- Laptop backup support


Symform will be covering the food/drinks for the evening and bringing a door prize.


In addition to Symform, we will also have two special guests in attendance. SBS Microsoft Most Valued Professionals, Philip Elder, and Jason Miller, are both in town working on a project over at Microsoft this week along with Steve Banks, and are excited to spend time with the group sharing the latest on the recently announced Aurora beta (http://connect.microsoft.com/sbs to sign up for it). With Symform’s Kevin Brown, and Philip and Jason all here, it will prove to be an incredible evening, so looking forward to seeing everyone there. Will be at our usual location, Microsoft’s Lincoln Square offices in downtown Bellevue (700 Bellevue Way NE – Lincoln Square, Bellevue, WA 98004).


Park in the Lincoln Square garage and meet at the elevators on the first floor by 6 PM to head up to the meeting (take a ticket when you enter the garage, but parking will be free for the evening).


Meeting will be from 6:00 PM – 8:30 PM.
