Breaking Free from Hyperscalers: Building Digital Unicorns with IaaS

Originally aired:

About the Session

Digital start-ups have long relied on the Big Three hyperscalers for their business models, but at a cost. These hyperscalers have imposed excessive fees, surprise billing, and vendor lock-in, hindering the growth of start-ups. To overcome these challenges, start-ups need to explore alternative Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) providers that offer greater flexibility and control.

Join us at this talk to learn about different IaaS providers that can help digital start-ups minimize costs, simplify billing, and maintain freedom, choice, and flexibility. During this session, we'll explore the full range of Cloud services available, including Kubernetes, Managed Databases, Storage, Networking, and Cloud Compute, and how these services can be leveraged to build the next digital unicorn.

Key takeaways for attendees include:

  • Understand the challenges posed by hyperscalers and the need to explore alternative IaaS providers.
  • Learn about the different Cloud services available to digital start-ups, including Kubernetes, Managed Databases, Storage, Networking, and Cloud Compute.
  • Discover how to minimize costs, simplify billing, and maintain freedom, choice, and flexibility when building the next digital unicorn.
  • Gain insights into how to evaluate different IaaS providers and select the one that best meets your start-up's needs.
