Here are the top five reasons to attend ZertoCON 2017:
Swag is great—and you’ll definitely get more than your share at ZertoCON 2017—but the #1 reason you need to be in Boston May 22-24th is the invaluable knowledge & skills you’ll learn from our training and certifications. This year we’re quadrupling the amount of training offered at ZertoCON, and it’s spread across a variety of formats in order to suit your needs and schedule.
The headliner this year is ZCP Advanced (ZCPA): the much-requested, long-awaited, advanced technical certification designed for those who’ve already passed ZCP Basic and are looking to take their ZVR expertise to the next level. We’ve previously piloted an early version of the exam, but now we’re ready to roll out the full training series. Normally comprised of six classes (five core + one elective), at ZertoCON, we’re running ZCPA as an all-day, accelerated boot camp—heavily discounted and with the elective waived—on Monday the 22nd before the full conference really shifts into high gear!
Not yet ready for the full ZCPA experience? You still won’t want to miss the instructor-led version of ZCP Basic 5.0! Every year, thousands of IT pros complete this course online in myZerto University. But ZertoCON 2017 will be the first time we’re offering it live in a classroom format led by certified ZVR experts. It’s completely free and the ideal option for prospects, customers, and partners new to ZVR and looking for a technical introduction to get up-and-running with Zerto’s easy, enterprise-grade BC/DR solution.
Of course, the online option is still available, and it’s complemented by additional online certifications on using ZVR with Azure and AWS, as well as courses specifically for sales & technical attendees from our Zerto Alliance Partner ecosystem.
Lastly, you’re going to want to ensure your ZertoCON bucket list doesn’t just include hitting up our parties and sampling local craft beers. The hugely popular, hands-on labs from ZertoCON 2016 are back and better than ever for ZertocON 2017. Back again this year are the vSphere and AWS labs, but now we’re adding Azure to the line-up as well! Getting started with the public cloud has never been easier, and the labs give you an unparalleled opportunity to try ZVR 5.0 for yourself. You can even play around with one-to-many replication and see how easy it is for ZVR to protect one VM across multiple sites, no matter whether those sites are your office across the city, a colo hundreds of miles away, or one of Amazon’s or Microsoft’s powerful, uber-elastic public clouds.
