THE CLOUD WAS BUILT FOR THIS

When we explored hyperscale enablement in 2019, we said “Go big or go home”… and then everybody had to stay home! Now CloudFest surges back in the wake of a global pandemic as we take stock of the strengths, weaknesses, risks, and opportunities that are revealed by a globe-spanning threat like COVID-19. The internet’s original architects could not imagine the types of content and commerce that would populate the global network or the types of devices we would be using—but they correctly envisioned that the internet would come through when it was needed most. Celebrate a stronger, wiser, and more experienced Cloud with us as we tackle the second part in our three-year theme arc: The Intelligent Cloud: a study of AI in the Cloud ecosystem. You, the cloud professional, have an important role to play in the future of technology—so join us at CloudFest 2021 and help push the Cloud forward.

THE INTELLIGENT CLOUD: AN EXAMINATION OF AI IN THE CLOUD ECOSYSTEM

CloudFest 2021 is the second in a three-year theme arc. We began in 2019 with Hyperscale Enablement, and this year we’ll explore how artificial intelligence can maximize the interoperability that this allows: you’ll remember that this was meant to be our 2020 theme, but it’s an industry-shaking phenomenon that is well worth exploring. The Intelligent Cloud allows AI to manage and distribute complex workloads, with smart tools that make interoperability and scale more cost-effective and efficient. It’s a tech paradigm that is developing further each day, and CloudFest will help pave the way for its maturity. CloudFest 2021 will go beyond the hype and mainstream futurism and dig into concrete case studies, use cases, partnerships, and analyses of the true (and ever-closer) future of AI. Together let’s get ready for the AI evolution in a meaningful way, in terms of technology, oversight, economics, and morality.

WEB-PROS IN THE CLOUD: SMART CREATIVITY AT SCALE

A great website isn’t a product—it’s a service. A website needs continuous upkeep for it to remain compelling, relevant, and secure: that’s your job as a CSP or CSV, and you’ve built a successful business out of it. So as you win more clients, focusing on design excellence grows further out of reach.

Meanwhile, Web Professionals specialize in design and creativity, and do not want to dip their toes too deep into the waters of customer retention and growth analytics. Together you become a powerful force—Web Pros and hyperscale platforms teamed up to save countless SMBs during the COVID-19 pandemic—but first you must meet each other. This year, CloudFest is making that happen by inviting top Web Professionals to the festival.

Dr. Buzz Aldrin

Apollo 11 astronaut

Nasa

Buzz Aldrin was born in Montclair, New Jersey on January 20, 1930 to Marion Moon — the daughter of an Army Chaplain — and Edwin Eugene Aldrin — a Colonel in the Air Force, a ScD from MIT, and an aviation pioneer. Buzz attended West Point Military Academy, graduating third in his class. He then joined the Air Force, flying 66 combat missions in Korea, shooting down two MIG-15's, and receiving the Distinguished Flying Cross. After a tour of duty in Germany flying F100's, he earned his Doctorate of Science in Astronautics at MIT and wrote his thesis on Manned Orbital Rendezvous. In 1963 NASA selected Aldrin to become the first astronaut with a doctorate degree. Known as “Dr. Rendezvous,” the docking techniques he devised for spacecraft in orbit became critical to the success of the Gemini and Apollo programs and are still used today. He also pioneered underwater training techniques to simulate spacewalking and, in 1966, performed the world’s first successful spacewalk and later set a EVA record of 5 ½ hours. On July 20, 1969, Buzz and Neil Armstrong became the first two humans to set foot on another world. The world’s largest television audience in history at that time — 600 million people – witnessed this unprecedented heroic endeavor. Upon returning, Buzz was decorated with the Presidential Medal of Freedom — the highest American peacetime award — along with numerous intentional honors, including the Congressional Gold Medal. Col. Aldrin has remained at the forefront of efforts to ensure America’s continued leadership in human space exploration. He devised a master plan for missions to Mars and has received three US patents for his schematics of a modular space station, reusable rockets, and multi-crew modules. He founded Starcraft Boosters, Inc. — a rocket design company — and Buzz Aldrin’s ShareSpace Foundation — a nonprofit devoted to addressing science literacy for children. Dr. Aldrin is an author of eight books including his best-selling autobiography “Magnificent Desolation.” He continues to inspire today’s youth with his illustrated children’s books “Reaching for the Moon” and “Look to the Stars.” He has also authored two space science-fact-fiction novels: “The Return” and “Encounter with Tiber.” His latest book — “Mission to Mars: My Vision for Space Exploration” — was published in 2013. As one of the leading space exploration advocates, Buzz continues to chart a course for future space travel and is passionate about inspiring the younger generations of explorers and innovators.”
