About Conference

UP conference is the premier cloud computing event, covering latest trends and innovations in the world of cloud computing. It was founded in 2010 by Cloudcor Inc® - a global alliance of professionals in cloud computing and an international cloud aggregation centre-point, providing global directions and best practices around the future of Cloud Computing.

Third annual UP 2012 Cloud Computing conference follows on from the successes of inaugural UP 2010, and UP 2011 events, which have provided the cloud industry a communication platform like no other event. This pioneering and landmark event, is delivered in “hybrid” format consisting of both virtual and physical elements.

UP 2012 Live event takes place Day 1 (December 12) at the South San Francisco Conference Center, California USA and also broadcast virtually.

Conference panels, workshops, and tutorials are selected to cover a range of the hottest topics in cloud computing. An international network of cloud computing thought leaders from thousands of organisations and individuals participated, creating a fresh, objective and positive outlook on Cloud Computing.
