The Information's Hybrid Cloud & AI Event

Wednesday, February 14, 2018 • 9:00 am - 3:30 pm

Cloud computing has revolutionized how companies operate, allowing companies to slash how much they spend on computer hardware. Even big companies are shifting to the cloud, taking advantage of “hybrid cloud” offerings. At this event, we’ll explore "multi-cloud" and “cloud native” technologies, including why many companies use containers and Kubernetes. Finally, we will look at how artificial intelligence will be the next big money maker for public cloud providers.


Breakout session descriptions can be found here.
