Busy September for Renaissance

31 Aug 2011

Renaissance is hosting a number of events for its partners this month, with resellers invited to upskill in several of the distributor’s affiliated brands.

The first event is a two-day Palo Alto Networks training session, where attendees will be led through the process of installing, configuring, managing and troubleshooting Palo Alto next-generation firewalls. Renaissance says this will be a useful course for people considering pursuing Palo Alto’s formal certification process. This event will be held on September 7 and 8.

Partners in the networking field may be more interested in the Brocade session being held two weeks later. This one-day session will help resellers become certified to install and maintain Brocade IP switching and routing products, and will be held on September 21.

Finally, resellers are also invited to an NComputing hands-on lab on September 22. This session will cover virtualisation solutions for Windows 7, and will run for ninety minutes, starting at 4pm.

Among all this is the company’s Rush Hour reseller channel networking event, which will be hosted by Renaissance vendors Ozaki. Rush Hour will be held on September 15 at Tyler St Garage on Auckland’s Quay Street, starting at 5pm.
