VentureBeat’s second annual cloud event takes place Nov 28-29 in Redwood City, and we’re again gathering the most disruptive characters in the cloud’s evolving story to deliver valuable lessons in cloud adoption.

Now in its second year, CloudBeat is again assembling the biggest names in the cloud’s evolving story and asking them the questions that you need answered. Unlike nearly all other cloud events, the customers themselves are front and center. Their discussions with vendors and other experts unearth rare lessons on cloud adoption, providing insights and actionable data on what really works, who’s buying what, and where the industry is going.
