NAB, Kubernetes to speak at Australian Cloud & DC Strategy Summit

[Blog post] Full program of reasons to book your ticket today.

The full program for the Australian Cloud & DC Strategy Summit 2016 is now live and can be downloaded here.

The roster of speakers is now significantly beefed up since we announced the first round last month.

In addition to Google Kubernetes co-founder Craig McLuckie, our keynotes include:

  • Equinix global CIO Brian Lillie
  • NAB head of cloud and data centre services Tim Palmer
  • Switch SuperNAP EVP DC evangelism Mark Thiele

We have also added a number of exciting sessions including:

“How Australian scientists use big data to explore the origin of everything”

Exploration of space is now often done in the data centre using high-performance computing. This panel assembles leaders in Australian space exploration including astronomers, scientists and engineers to discuss how information technology helps them to peer deep into the cosmos.

“Is your data free to fly? TPP secrets that may dictate your next move”

The Trans Pacific Partnership and other related international trade agreements have cloud and data firmly in their sights. But as with any legal document, the devil is in the detail. Our speakers are well versed in the minutiae of these agreements and will surface aspects that you may not have considered and the (un)intended consequences as Australian legislators turn these agreements into law.

A limited number of tickets are on sale here.

The line-up of speakers and panellists now includes:

  • Google group product manager and Kubernetes co-founder Craig McLuckie
  • Universal Music Australia IT manager David Vered
