Cloud computing has come a long way since we explored opportunities in 2009 and 2010. Whilst others are discussing the basics, we believe that the topic has matured enough to have a sensible discussion on ecosystems emerging around major cloud computing technologies and providers.

Previous speakers included Microsoft (Bindi Karia) and Amazon Web Services (Simone Brunozzi) representing IaSS; (Tim Barker and Mujibur Choudhury) representing PaSS; and Paypal (John Lunn), Xero (Gary Turner) and Capsule CRM (Duncan Stockdill) representing SaaS, and Venture Capitalists on investment opportunities (Ed French from EV Group and Ivan Farnetti from Doughty Hanson).

Since early 2006, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has provided companies of all sizes with an infrastructure web services platform in the cloud. With AWS you can requisition compute power, storage, and other services–gaining access to a suite of elastic IT infrastructure services as your business demands them. With AWS you have the flexibility to choose whichever development platform or programming model makes the most sense for the problems you’re trying to solve. You pay only for what you use, with no up-front expenses or long-term commitments, making AWS the most cost-effective way to deliver your application to your customers and clients. And, with AWS, you can take advantage of’s global computing infrastructure that is the backbone of’s multi-billion retail business and transactional enterprise whose scalable, reliable, and secure distributed computing infrastructure has been honed for over a decade.
