Structure Research to Host the Third Annual infra // STRUCTURE Summit

Event Will Provide Vital Networking Opportunities and Access to High-Value Content for Cloud and Data Center Executives                                                     

TORONTO – December 10, 2019 – Structure Research, an independent research and consulting firm focused on the infrastructure services ecosystem, announces the dates for its third annual infra // STRUCTURE conference to be held on May 6-7, 2020 at the Sheraton Centre Hotel in Toronto. The vendor-neutral event is an exclusive industry summit that brings together executives from across the Internet infrastructure ecosystem to engage in high-value networking and discussion regarding the current status and future of the industry. This year, the two-day event features expanded capacity for an enhanced global perspective. The conference’s theme for 2020 is: ‘Convergence: Bridging hyperscale and edge in a decentralizing world.’

Attendees can expect discussion about how hyperscale has spawned a new breed of infrastructure service provider and a rapidly transforming supporting ecosystem, causing service offerings to change and business models to be revolutionized. Attendees will examine how this coincides with the Internet’s continued growth and the new generation of emerging applications that take end users further out than ever before, demanding unprecedented levels of latency and performance. As the edge drives decentralization, it’s becoming clear that the new hyperscale world has proved to be more fluid than originally thought. When these two elements combine, enhanced and expanded value await both the hyperscale cloud and the edge.

As an independent research and consulting firm, Structure Research provides exclusive insights and comprehensive content based on industry-leading expertise and unique market positioning, guiding executives as they make key strategic business decisions. The company leverages extensive repositories of metrics and data to inform their analyses, disrupting traditional research methods by implementing new strategies of measurement and trend inspection. Structure Research’s devotion to understanding, tracking and projecting the future of the market certifies that this event is a crucial source of information and unique strategic perspective.

The infra // STRUCTURE summit serves to connect the public cloud with the infrastructure sector’s new wave of value-creating companies to help realize full potential across the board. Just as last year’s event boasted a compelling agenda of relevant presentations, this year’s summit will offer cloud and data center executives a chance to become singularly informed and participate in the industry conversation. The agenda for the 2020 summit features speaking appearances from eminent industry minds such as Zachary Smith, CEO of Packet; Lance Crosby, CEO of StackPath; Mark Clayman, CEO of RDX; Shannon Hulbert, CEO of Opus Interactive; Harm Joosse, Director of Business Development for Interxion and Phillip Marangella, Chief Marketing Officer at EdgeConneX, with many more still to be announced.

Last year, the infra // STRUCTURE 2019 summit in Toronto garnered more than 350 registrations. This year, the event is expanding to accommodate up to 500 attendees, and it will also cover two days to include a multi-track pre-conference program featuring analyst presentations, panel discussions and networking opportunities for event sponsors and attendees. Sponsoring the summit is a host of distinguished companies, including Packet, RBC Capital Markets, Layer 7 Capital, CoreSite, Ubersmith, Opus Interactive, Total Product Marketing, NetApp and Vertiv.

“This unique event replaces legacy events that remain stuck in the old world, instead bringing together the next wave of value-creating companies,” notes Philbert Shih, Managing Director, Structure Research. “This empowers the Internet infrastructure ecosystem to maximize potential, engaging in vital conversation and collaboratively charting a new course for the future. The 2020 event will continue to expand and strengthen the success of the previous years, delivering even more comprehensive opportunities for attendees to discuss and solve pertinent industry challenges while assessing and fostering innovation for the future.”

The agenda for infra // STRUCTURE 2020 has been carefully curated to offer exhaustive and in-depth industry insight with dynamic and pioneering knowledge from eminent minds. The event, which features Structure Research’s data and insights on both the current and future infrastructure sector, also provides educational sessions to empower attendees with highly valuable research and information, promoting growth and collaboration throughout the cloud and data center community.
