It’s amazing that another year has gone by, and WHD.Global 2015 is upon us already!
For those not familiar with it, WHD (World Hosting Days) is a series of events/conferences that happen worldwide and focus on Web Hosting and related services. It’s an awesome opportunity for vendors, partners and clients to meet up and discuss what is going on, and what is coming up in the industry.
The main global event is held in Rust, Germany and this year will run between March 24th and 26th.
Last year one of the main Keynotes was around the topic of privacy, and was discussed by a panel that included the OnApp/Cloud.net CEO Ditlev Bredahl – and the Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. As you can imagine it drew a huge crowd and for sure raised a few eyebrows at some government agencies worldwide!
This year they have another great line-up of speakers. There will be over 100 speaking sessions but the one we are personally very excited about (besides OnApp’s own keynotes of course) is none other than the Woz himself! Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple will be giving his own views on his career, and cloud hosting.
And in keeping with last year’s controversial topic, another (in)famous speaker will be Edward Snowden, who will (remotely) join a Q&A panel on surveillance. Should be an interesting one to keep an eye on…
Now back to Cloud.net and OnApp: as usual we are one of the Diamond Partners for WHD.Global, and will have a big presence and booth. The big party at the end of the show will also be sponsored by OnApp.
If you are attending, come and see us – we expect to have a new version of the Cloud.net “Cloud Butler” ready to demo. This will be the new version of the Marketplace, where you select what cloud resources you require, and from where. The new version will give you additional metrics to help you make an even more informed decision when buying Infrastructure in the cloud, and we can’t wait to show it!
So come and meet us at Booth C09, right in the center of the action.
Hope we see you there…
