Call it what you will — the Davos of Cloud, the Big Chill of cloud buzz, you name it — our friends at GigaOM have put together a terrific lineup of big time clouderati at the Structure conference next Wednesday June 20th and 21st.
A lot of these guys are the real deal — Adrian Cockcroft of Netflix is an old friend who has long been thinking several leagues ahead and has track record of delivering on those ideas. Werner Vogels of Amazon has certainly done his part to upset some apple carts. And OpenStack gets more than its fair share of attention with the twins-separated-at-birth alumni of the NASA OpenStack singularity, Josh McKenty of Piston and Chris Kemp of Nebula, While opportunities for breathless bluster abound, I expect a fair amount of interesting discussion to emerge.
Mirantis is delighted to be a Prime Time sponsor at Structure. We’ll be talking about how to make the best of OpenStack OpenSource Cloud without the questionable joys of vendor dependencies. We’d be delighted if you’d join us for our workshop Wednesday Afternoon at 3:45
3:45 PM – MIRANTIS SPONSOR WORKSHOP – ROOM 4
