About this event

Open Infrastructure - it's the combination of open source and hardware. We've all seen the benefits of open APIs and community developed, open-source software. Can the same be applied to the compute and network infrastructure running the Internet?

Could things like open-source P2P supplant AWS S3? Could open-source OpenStack Manilla replace Dropbox and Box? Could open-source virtual networking software (SDNs) replace proprietary network gear from Juniper and Cisco? Might we see the end of vendor hardware lock-in?
