Independent research and consulting firm Structure Research has announced the second edition of their annual infra // STRUCTURE conference – to be held May 1-2, 2019 at the Sheraton Centre Hotel in Toronto. The vendor-neutral event with a C-level keynote speaker lineup brings together executives from across the Internet infrastructure ecosystem to network and discuss the future of the industry.

This year, the infra // STRUCTURE conference theme is ‘Decentralization: Beyond Hyperscale,’ covering topics related to the impact interconnection and edge are having on the infrastructure services ecosystem. Attendees can expect discussion surrounding how a hyperscale-centric world is being decentralized as content and applications, and the infrastructure that supports them, move further out to 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,” helping executives make key decisions about their business strategies.

Structure Research would leverage extensive repositories of metrics and data to inform their analyses. Structure Research’s devotion to understanding, tracking and projecting the future of the market would make this event a crucial source of information and unique strategic perspective.

The infra // STRUCTURE summit serves to connect the public cloud and service provider sector’s “new wave of value-creating companies” to help realize full potential across the board. The agenda for 2019’s summit features speaking appearances from eminent industry minds such as Lance Crosby, CEO of StackPath; Zachary Smith, CEO of Packet; Mark Adams, CDO of Equinix; Jonathan Schildkraut, CSO of CyrusOne and others.

Last year, the inaugural infra // STRUCTURE 2018 summit in Toronto hosted over 260 attendees. This year, the event is expanding to accommodate 350 attendees, and will also extend to two days to include a casual pre-conference program featuring exclusive analyst presentations and networking opportunities for event sponsors and attendees.

Sponsoring the Structure Research summit in Toronto is a host of distinguished companies, including DH Capital as a Diamond Sponsor, Packet and Stateless as Platinum Sponsors, and NetApp, ScienceLogic and Ubersmith as Gold Sponsors. The list continues with Opus:Interactive, RBC Capital Markets, Layer 7 Capital, MVP Capital and Megaport.

“When this event was created, its goal was to provide the infrastructure services market with a vendor-neutral event that brought all key players in the value chain together in one location for high-value networking and critical business development,” said Philbert Shih, Managing Director, Structure Research. “At 2019’s summit, attendees can expect this same community vision, but achieved on a bigger and better scale. Participants can look forward to augmented knowledge-share opportunities, an even greater amount of innovative content and growing opportunities for highly valuable business connections. However, the event will still carefully preserve the collegial and intimate atmosphere that attendees thrive on, even as its reputation and success grow.”
