Why We Participate?

Apache CloudStack's presence at CloudFest serves multiple strategic purposes. Firstly, by exhibiting at this major event in the cloud computing industry, Apache CloudStack enhances its visibility and connects with a diverse audience of developers, IT professionals, business leaders and potential new users. This exposure facilitates networking opportunities and enables Apache CloudStack to showcase its features and recent developments, fostering engagement with potential users, contributors, and partners.

Moreover, CloudFest offers a platform for Apache CloudStack to engage directly with its existing community, facilitating face-to-face interactions and discussions. The participation in CloudFest allows Apache CloudStack to stay competitive by highlighting its unique advantages and strengths amidst the broader landscape of cloud computing solutions.

Lastly, the event provides a valuable opportunity for Apache CloudStack to gather market intelligence, enabling the project to adapt and evolve in alignment with emerging trends, customer needs, and industry challenges.

We are greatful to all community members, who came to help at the booth, did numerous demos of Apache CloudStack and showcased its strenghts to service providers and cloud builders from all around the globe.
