CLOUDFEST PARKSIDE

GLOBAL SUMMER PARTY

We made it back to Europa-Park a lot sooner than anyone expected! CloudFest Parkside brought the cloud computing industry together at the iconic Bar Colosseo on September 16, combining the best of virtual and physical events in one action-packed afternoon. We pushed the limits on how the Cloud community can come together—and it was quite a ride!

ROCKING THE COLOSSEO BAR IN STYLE

We took over everyone’s favorite after-hours networking spot and turned it into a multimedia broadcast studio, with on-site and remote special guests, live music, and lively networking. This is how it all came together:

THE PARKSIDE HYBRID CONCEPT

CloudFest Parkside was based at Bar Colosseo, that iconic Europa-Park watering hole.

Hosts, special guests, and a live band broadcast and interacted from the bar, with more speakers and guests presenting from around the world.

Attendees took part and networked through a customized streaming platform, using their computers, mobile devices, or both. Host Claudia van Veen kept the action moving from the afternoon and into the evening as the cloud industry celebrated the end of summer and got a glimpse of what’s on the horizon.

RUNNING ORDER

CLOUD GAMING

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

As you may have noticed while working from home, online connected gaming is exploding! The cloud gaming market was $306 million in 2019, but is projected to hit $3.1 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 59.0%. Partnerships are the backbone of cloud gaming networks. Tomorrow’s cloud gaming efforts will require the right balance of software, hardware, and a globally-distributed edge network. How can you prepare for the future, and align with the partners that can get you that high score?

INDUSTRY 4.0, EDGE

5:10 PM - 6:00 PM

Industry 4.0 refers to today’s cloud economy, which focuses heavily on interconnectivity, automation, machine learning, and real-time data. When you prepare to take your customers to the edge, don’t do it from a datacenter of your own—line up a team of Industry 4.0 experts who can help you take advantage of 5G, machine learning, AI, and more.

WHAT’S HOT

6:10 PM - 7:30 PM

Innovators in the Cloud have not been sitting still.
This track highlights the hottest ideas of the year. Learn about the best new tools in the Cloud, directly from the innovators themselves—and see what tomorrow looks like. Catch a collection of the brilliant ideas that CloudFest is famous for, all in a single afternoon.

PARKSIDE PARTY

7:35 PM - 8:15 PM

It’s not a CloudFest event without a party! Enjoy live music as well as group and one-on-one networking in a familiar setting we all love. Our streaming platform has no way for us to serve drinks over the internet, so it’s BYOB. (Maybe this will be a task for the 2021 Hackathon, but until then…)

    WHY THE CLOUD LOVES CLOUDFEST

    CloudFest is the best conference series for what we do. I’m so glad 2020 could not stop it. And a new format? Yes! Colosseo Bar even virtually should be fun. Let’s see what happens!

    The best place to meet the whole hosting industry and all its decision-makers is the Colosseo Bar in Rust. In this bar, I negotiated M&A deals, praised the long-lasting relationships with our partners, and met my friends from the industry. For no reason will I miss the 2020 Parkside event!
