The amount of female talent and expertise in the cloud computing industry is immeasurable. Representation matters, though—traditional tech conferences are male-dominated: not just onstage, but in the networking sphere as well. At CloudFest we’re sick of that tradition (our own team is 50% female), so year on year we strive to bring more female participation in our mainstage presentations.
As more and more women take on senior and executive roles in the internet infrastructure industry, you better believe we’re providing these leaders the space they deserve.
Here are some of the women taking the stage at CloudFest 2022, March 22-24:

On March 22, catch her insights in her keynote “What’s in your Cloud?” where she will outline why inner values also matter for Cloud-based services, and how Intel provides the most comprehensive hardware portfolio for the data center of the future, connecting with the larger Cloud ecosystem so you can offer the most intelligent and secure services to solve the world’s greatest challenges.
Maria Vaquero, Innovation Manager at Cloud & Heat Technologies
On March 23, Sonja will be supported by Maria Vaquero, Innovation Manager at Cloud & Heat Technologies. Together, they will discover ‘The Path to Sustainable Cloud Services’.

In this joint keynote you will learn more about alternative energy sources, innovative cooling solutions and heat recovery concepts.

Huang will discuss a combination of Edge and Cloud architectures delivering advanced AI workloads to support digital transformation in this new era.
Marie Lanyon, Head of Reseller Marketing at CentralNic
Many Cloud professionals hold domain name portfolios, but you probably need to update your strategy if you want those names working harder for you.

Claudia Frese, CEO of STRATO AG
Digitizing SMBs has the potential to add trillions of new dollars to the cloud economy in the coming decade—and to accelerate economic recovery, which we all need right around now. So far, the process has been slowed by several factors; such as access to available skilled talent, a lack of easy onboarding for SMBs not used to new technology, and an understanding of what that technology entails. In Helping Older SMBs Digitize, Frese and friends will explore how to overcome this, and unlock the vast potential of getting SMBs out of their old IT closets
