The time is now.

It is hard to miss how massive-scale cloud has been a disruptive force up and down the infrastructure services value chain. This was once a market with seemingly unlimited runway and addressable market. Things are still healthy, but the rise of cloud has caused a shift in the landscape that will force providers to consider new models and evaluate the viability of old ones.

The shifts are plain to see. Managed hosters and service providers have retreated from commodity cloud services and pivoted to reselling and managing on top of the massive-scale platforms. Meanwhile, the colocation market has separated and cloud is a big reason why. As the likes of Amazon and Azure grow, so too does their appetite for wholesale-level deployments, and providers are rushing to meet that demand. Those in the retail colocation game are shifting as well and they are focusing on getting end users to the cloud through interconnection services and enabling hybrid deployments.

The changing landscape has spawned a new ecosystem of companies and blurred lines between service providers. The first wave of infrastructure providers competed well in raw compute and storage. They are still in that game, but increasingly focusing this expertise to specialized verticals, performance-sensitive workloads and third party applications. The rise of the managed third party cloud model has also given birth to an ecosystem of new vendors that support various elements of these next-generation services and business models. And with the move to cloud unrelenting, service providers that have mostly stood on the sidelines are now making their way to the sector. The cloud has blurred lines and made distinctions between service providers less and less relevant.

There is a ‘new world’ emerging and a vastly different ecosystem is being built around it that is going to generate billions of dollars of value.

infra // STRUCTURE replaces legacy events that cater to and are stuck in the old world and brings together the next wave of value-creating companies so that they can realize their full potential.

Why should I attend?

The infrastructure services market lacks an industry event that is vendor-neutral and brings together under one roof all the key pieces - operators, developers, end users, suppliers and financiers - that are involved in the value chain. infra // STRUCTURE was built to create an environment where conversations happen, relationships are built and ultimately, deals are done - all against the backdrop of third party analysis and engaged discussion of the sector’s most pertinent issues and challenges. Today’s Internet infrastructure executive is busy. There is no better way to get multiple things done at one time and in one location.
