Industry leaders convene to discuss security and cloud computing at the ninth annual Structure Conference produced by Structure Events

Bryan Cantrill, Joyent CTO, presenting at Structure 2015

For nearly a decade, Structure Conference has been bringing together the world’s leading cloud technology companies, hot startups and business leaders for two days of high-level thought leadership.

About the Conference: These days, the cloud is the computer, and we’re now dealing with many clouds. The current market comprises a handful of massively scaled public cloud options but also a large array of branded private clouds, and tools for devops and container management are becoming increasingly important. With a billion devices coming online, infrastructure needs may change, and buyers will need to understand how this new world works.

The state and utilization of containers will also be a hot topic. Bryan Cantrill, Joyent CTO, gave a presentation last year about the history of containers, their current structure and future capability. Check out the video to learn more.

Join leadership from the top cloud technology companies and startups to discuss computing at the edge, organization use of the public cloud, the use of containers for production workloads and the future of data center management. Structure Conference is the only conference that brings all of these constituencies together to discuss the best path forward.

Topics covered Include:

  • Distributed computing is the new cloud computing. Computing at the edge. Edge computing. Whatever you want to call it, more processing will be done closer to the actual end user to improve performance and generate real-time data. What will this look like?
  • How will the internet of things change infrastructure needs? As a billion devices come online, we’ll need a new security model and a new data architecture.
  • Is it time to re-architect the web? As governments and corporations have come to dominate the most important crossroads of the internet, are de-centralized ideas for the internet about to come back into vogue?
  • How does the public cloud best suit your organization? With Dropbox moving off of Amazon Web Services yet moving onto the dominant public cloud player, there are all kinds of considerations companies must make when planning their infrastructure needs. Learn what you need to do.
  • Who are the next “Super 7” infrastructure buyers?
  • If 2015 was the year of experimentation with containers, and 2016 was the year of production, will 2017 see mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads?
  • How will the data centers of the future be managed?
  • Attend Structure this November 8th & 9th at the Mission Bay Conference Center in San Francisco.. As with other Structure Events, the conference is expected to sell out. Register today to ensure your spot.
