We’re taking over an amusement park in the
Black Forest—and yes, the park is open just for us!

Welcome to CloudFest

CloudFest is the #1 internet infrastructure event in the world, connecting the global cloud computing industry: you’ll form the partnerships that help you reach your business goals, and have a great time doing it. CloudFest returns to deliver an even bigger, more engaging live event experience that will surprise longtime attendees and first-timers alike.

This is CloudFest

The world’s largest cloud industry event is ready to once again take over a spectacular European amusement park to facilitate new partnerships, deep knowledge sharing, and the best parties the industry has ever seen. We do this because we love technology, we love people, and we’re excited for the possibilities that emerge when brilliant human beings connect.

Meet our First Speakers

Day 1: The Digital Supply Chain

Sandra Wachter

Prof. of Technology and Regulation

University of Oxford

Inside the Black Box

You’ll explore how you can leverage the momentum of rapid digital transformation to reinvigorate the supply chain and revolutionize how people are hired, collaborate, and get things done. When open-source tools run up against walled gardens, this can get complicated—but CloudFest will help you to make it work.

Speaking on Day 1 is Sandra Wachter, Professor of Technology and Regulation at the University of Oxford. As a privacy and GDPR-reform advocate who focuses on ethics in AI and robotics, Wachter works on how to make algorithms function fairly, even when you don’t know exactly what they’re doing.

Day 2: Protectors of the Internet

Yuliana Shemetovets


Belarusian Cyber Partisans

The Front Lines of Cyber Warfare

CloudFest will help you reach your internal security and delivery enablement goals while making sure your customers’ data stays safe in your hands. Beyond commercial cybersecurity, we’re bringing you lessons from actual cyber warfare.

The Cyber Partisans have claimed responsibility for attacks against Russian and Belarusian infrastructure to prevent the movement of Russian troops, as well as the release of government and police data—and they’ve been helping protesters and activists to safely communicate. The group is anonymous, even to each other—but activist and Cyber Partisans spokesperson Yuliana Shemetovets joins us on Day 2 for a conversation about fighting a war using data. 

day 3: Retention is the New Acquisition

Andrew Cotton

Professional big Wave Surfer

Go Big or Go Home 

This year we will directly equip you with skills to maximize revenue, by keeping you squarely focused on fulfilling the evolving needs of your existing customers—making them more valuable to your reputation as well as your bottom line.

Risk management and knowing when to go with the flow are useful skills in business and in life, so we’re bringing you a true expert: Andrew Cotton is a professional big wave surfer who has conquered some of the biggest breaks in the world—from Portugal and California to Australia and Hawaii. 

Cotty has learned his lessons in resilience the hard way… you’ll see when you meet him on Day 3!

day 3: Retention is the New Acquisition

Internet Heroes

Paul Vixie

Co-Inventor of the DNS

Currently the VP of Security at AWS, this Internet Hall of Famer wrote the original ARPANET delivermail application. He contributed to the Domain Name System (DNS), and is also responsible for protocols such as sendmail, which supports SMTP.

Michael “Monty” Widenius

Creator of MySQL and MariaDB

As the godfather of databases, Monty put the M in LAMP. He was a champion of open source culture before it was “cool”, from North America to Asia! Monty is also a founder and partner at OpenOcean, a VC firm dedicated to empowering tomorrow’s leaders in the data economy.

Local Hero

Adrian Stanek

The MSP Next Door

Adrian is the CTO of webbar, whose office is just 200m from Europa-Park. He’ll explain the strategies and ethics around serving SMBs right here in the area.
