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.
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.
It’s an outstanding panel:
- Jason Hoffman, CTO, Joyent
- Byron Sebastian, CEO, Heroku
- Sebastian Stadil, founder, Scalr
- Robert Miggins, SVP, Serverbeach
- Tom Mornini, CTO and Co-Founder, Engine Yard
