CloudFest

Over the past fifteen years, CloudFest has grown to become the largest and most effective series of global events geared towards executives in the internet infrastructure ecosystem. Our greatest wish each year is to deliver an experience that is bigger and better than the year before, to bring the most memorable experiences to our attendees, and the most value to our sponsors. We are confident that 2019 will raise the bar once again.

There is no substitute for being here.

Over 7,000 potential customers, professional peers, and industry leaders are expected to attend CloudFest 2019 (Rust, Germany) from March 23 – 29, for a week dedicated to innovation, opportunity, and straight up fun. We will welcome hundreds of exhibitors to our trade show floor, as attendees gain access to some of the most revolutionary products to hit the market. Keynote addresses, workshops, specialty panels on top trending topics, and networking opportunities where you can truly connect, make CloudFest your must attend experience of the year!

Hyperscaling in Hyperdrive

Hyperscalers are growing at an exponential rate and currently forecasted to control close to 70 percent of the IaaS market by 2021, a notable upswing from 50 percent in 2016.* As the technology landscape continues to evolve and user needs change, these large-scale operators are reshaping the face of the market, scaling up operations that are poised to solve one of the industry’s most fundamental problems – complexity. We believe that now is the time for service providers to see the tremendous opportunity before them by aligning with these critical drivers of the infrastructure space and developing partnerships that are equipped to fundamentally grow your business long into the future. To that end, in 2019, CloudFest will focus our conference around the central theme of hyperscale enablement. Here you can expect to mix company with a handful of the most globally recognized hyperscale operators who stand ready to share the opportunities that exist for providers in the channel partnership space while outlining best practice strategies on how to profitably collaborate.

Why Hyperscalers

Opportunity in profit

Hyperscale partnerships open up the potential to make money from varying streams of the demand and value chains

Opportunity in the market expansion

As organizations move from an analog to digital means of working, hyperscalers have arrived to fill the gap, and that continues to grow

Opportunity in development tools

In terms of efficiency and features, the hyperscale cloud has the most significant developers and will consistently outpace on feature richness; clearly it makes sense to leverage the technology

Opportunity in trust

Cloud is outsourcing. It’s easy to trust a hyperscaler on infrastructure while continuing to trust a channel partner on management and systems design

Smaller-scale service providers still make up 50 percent of the overall cloud services marketplace, but that number is rapidly shrinking. Why? Because they are pursuing hyperscale partnerships now.

*Gartner Inc.

»We see this as a critical juncture in the industry, a time where service providers should no longer look to hyperscalers as the competition, but to welcome them as a vital partner.«
Soeren von Varchmin, CEO at CloudFest

Attention

Special Incentive Offer for Hyperscale Diamond and Diamond Plus Partners

Because we believe strongly that CloudFest 2019 is the ideal platform on which to bridge the gap between hyperscalers and cloud services providers, we have built-in a special incentive for those hyperscalers who sign on board as a Diamond or Diamond Plus Partner. Coupled with our premium Diamond Partner package rewards (see below), each hyperscale Diamond Partner will have access to a private venue to conduct a four-hour bootcamp to share best practices on how to get started with your services.
