  • En la mayoría de las pequeñas y medianas empresas, AD conforma el núcleo de los sistemas informáticos y, como tal, supone la dependencia de un único fabricante, menos flexibilidad y costes más altos. Participe en este webinario en directo para aprender cómo Zentyal, un servidor para pymes basado en Ubuntu y oficialmente soportado por Canonical, ofrece un sustituto de fácil uso a Windows Server gracias a su integración con Samba 4.0.

    Este webinario tendrá lugar el día 2 de mayo a las 17:00 (CET), a cargo de Darryl Weaver, Ingeniero de Ventas en Canonical y Mateo Burillo, Coordinador de Formación en Zentyal. Se habrá realizado una sesión en inglés dos horas antes. Durante el seminario podrá aprender sobre las nuevas características de Samba 4.0 y ver un escenario típico de migración para una organización que desea migrar de Microsoft Active Directory a Zentyal. También conocerá las opciones de soporte disponibles y las ventajas que ofrecen los partners de Ubuntu-Zentyal a los clientes interesados en la migración a esta alternativa de software libre.

    Durante la sesión se explicará:

    * Cuáles son las principales diferencias entre Samba 3.0 y Samba 4.0
    * Cómo se realiza un escenario típico de migración, qué limitaciones existen y cómo realizar la posterior gestión
    * Qué opciones de soporte están disponibles
    * Además, podrá realizar preguntas directamente al personal de Canonical y Zentyal

    Este webinario es ideal para:
    * Pequeñas y medianas empresas interesadas en migrar de Active Directory a Samba 4.0
    * Revendedores de Microsoft que están buscando alternativas que les ayuden a seguir ofreciendo soluciones a sus clientes pequeños y medianos
    * Cualquier proveedor local de servicios TIC o proveedor de servicios gestionados, que en la actualidad ofrece a las pymes servicios integrales de infraestructura TIC y está interesado en hacer crecer su negocio
  • In most of the small and medium businesses, Active Directory (AD) is the core of the IT systems and as such, it means vendor lock-in, less flexibility and higher costs. Join this live webinar to learn how Zentyal, an Ubuntu-based server for small and medium businesses and officially supported by Canonical, offers an easy-to-use replacement to Windows Server thanks to its Samba 4.0 integration.

    During this webinar, you will learn about the new features of Samba 4.0 and see a typical migration scenario for an organisation seeking to migrate from Microsoft Active Directory to Zentyal.
    You will also find out about the support arrangements available for organisations seeking to take route and how the Ubuntu-Zentyal partners benefit customers that wish to migrate to this open source alternative.

    This webinar is ideal for:

    * Small and medium businesses interested in migrating from Active Directory to Samba 4.0,

    * Microsoft resellers who are looking for alternatives to help them continue to offer solutions to small and medium customers,

    * Any local IT service provider or managed service provider, which currently offers SMBs IT infrastructure services and is interested in growing its business.
  • Ubuntu is one of the fastest growing open-source operating systems for scale-out servers that enable the latest wave of web, cloud and big data applications. Ubuntu features in the HP Moonshot System that changes the way enterprises design, deploy and manage servers.

    HP and Canonical, the firm behind Ubuntu, have partnered so that the Ubuntu Advantage support package is now available for resale by HP through SLMS. This gives HP SLMS an additional revenue opportunity in the rapidly growing new market for scale out computing.

    Join Jim Foy with Lee Bonham from Canonical to learn more about this opportunity.
