The No. 1 cloud computing conference to take place in an expanded format June 23-24, 2010

Structure has emerged as the leading cloud computing conference in the industry because it attracts the best minds from the web, SaaS and enterprise infrastructure sectors, who come together to discuss the evolution of the industry and share ideas

The GigaOM Network, a leading business media company, today announced that Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff and IBM Cloud Chief Erich Clementi will deliver keynote speeches at its 3rd annual Structure conference, the industry’s No. 1 cloud computing event. They will take the stage at Structure 2010, which will be held June 23–24 in San Francisco.

Based on the huge popularity of the first two sold-out Structure conferences, this year’s event has been expanded to two days. New speakers are being added to the roster daily and tickets are selling quickly; those who would like to attend the conference should register as soon as possible to ensure their space.

“Structure has emerged as the leading cloud computing conference in the industry because it attracts the best minds from the web, SaaS and enterprise infrastructure sectors, who come together to discuss the evolution of the industry and share ideas,” said Om Malik, founder of the GigaOM Network. “We’re thrilled to welcome back Marc Benioff and to have Erich Clementi join us as a keynote this year on behalf of IBM. I look forward to hearing from all of the cloud computing thought leaders who will participate in discussions during the conference.”

At Structure 2010, industry leaders will discuss the future of cloud computing, making predictions as to where the maturing industry is headed and which technologies are emerging as standards, as well as sharing best practices for implementing cloud infrastructures in the enterprise. Unlike other industry conferences, Structure is an interactive, open-format event where attendees debate the issues that matter most to them. From broadband to hardware and software, the conference topics cover every aspect of cloud computing.

Whether you’re an IT professional looking to learn about best practices when it comes to implementing cloud infrastructures, or a cloud entrepreneur looking for funding, Structure 2010 is a must-attend event that will connect you with the industry's most innovative thinkers. Attendees will also hear real-world case studies from companies that have successfully implemented cloud technologies to reduce costs, improve efficiencies and boost performance.
The sessions at Structure 2010 will include:

  •         Complexity: The Real Issues Emerging From the Data Tsunami
  •      Hey, You! Get off My Cloud! Standardizing Security in the Cloud
  •      Hit Reset: Rethinking Internet Technologies
  •      What Comes After the Blade? Rethinking Enterprise Compute Architectures for the Future

Last year, over 700 attendees representing more than 600 companies, as well as journalists from dozens of top media outlets, attended Structure – and we expect to welcome even more guests to this year’s expanded event. Primetime sponsors of Structure 2010 include WordPress.com, DuPont Fabros Technology, Peer1 Hosting, SpiceWorks and Salesforce.com.
