GigaOM Structure Event: The Future of Web Infrastructure for Startups

It is impossible to imagine a business that can thrive without good infrastructure. This is particularly true for businesses of the Internet economy because they need to be built on a platform that can deliver the original vision. For a startup, the infrastructure choices made in the early days have a lasting impact. Do you go for a hosting platform where you give up creative control but gain the promise of super-scalability? Or do you ensure you know your platform in detail by rolling out and maintaining your own hardware and software stacks? With the advent of cloud computing and recent trends toward hybrid hosting models, the choices and questions are growing each day.

Join us for breakfast on Dec. 3 as we bring together experts from the world of web infrastructure and ask them to outline the best options for startups. We will discuss future trends of platforms and new options for startups as the concepts behind hosting evolve into more niche infrastructure-on-demand services. This session is for entrepreneurs, technologists and developers in the web arena who want to know which direction web infrastructure is taking next. The event is sponsored by PEER 1.
