Deploying an Application Ready Network for Exchange Server 2010 (presented by F5 Networks) Meeting Sponsored by F5 Networks Topic: Network optimizations increase the availability, scalability and security of distributed applications. Whether you’re deploying a home-grown Windows application or a unified communications and collaboration solution with Exchange, SharePoint, and Office Communications Server, F5’s BIG-IP platform makes your network application ready. In this session we’ll provide concrete examples of these optimizations across commonly deployed Microsoft applications and technologies, with a specific focus on Exchange Server 2010. Scenarios we’ll cover include: high-availability for CAS servers, authentication and authorization of Exchange users, cross-site resilience, disaster recovery, and leveraging the application delivery controller as strategic point of control to enable better visibility and dynamic control over a virtual environment.

His focus is evangelizing F5’s BIG-IP and ARX product suites to customers and partners in the region.
