< BACK TO TOPICSNetwork as a Service in Massive Scale Cloud & Hybrid Computing

A lot has changed since Amazon first started thinking about delivering elastic, highly-scalable, pay-as-you-go technology services in the early 2000s, and which today make up AWS, the world’s leading cloud platform. Join Peter DeSantis, Amazon Web Services Vice President of Global Infrastructure, for a deep dive into the evolution of Network as a Service (NaaS) and how this is an essential factor in delivering cloud computing. He will outline how early investments in defining and building upon network primitives helped drive adoption, growth, and established the legitimacy of cloud computing.  DeSantis will deliver a glimpse of the future as NaaS continues to evolve, providing customers and partners greater flexibility and choice to similarly deconstruct and customize network characteristics in ways that enable them to innovate and advance their applications across both cloud and hybrid environments.
