After years of debating what cloud computing really is, we’re finally starting to get a clearer picture. Today and tomorrow at Structure 2011, held at San Francisco’s Mission Bay Conference Center, we’ll look at how the cloud landscape is shaping up: PaaS as the future of application hosting, how IaaS is increasingly becoming a part of cloud provider offerings, new developments in webscale infrastructure, new legal protections for data in the cloud and more.
Our livestream of the event begins at 8:25 a.m. PT on Wednesday, June 22, and 8:55 a.m. PT on Thursday, June 23, and we will be live-blogging the onstage sessions throughout both days.
