Cedexis' Marty Kagan presents: The State of Global Infrastructure Performance

This should be a pretty interesting presentation. With more and more internet startups are building their products in the public cloud, the cloud reliability and performance become absolutely critical. Cedexis has been monitoring uptime and performance of the major public clouds such as Amazon and RackSpace, PaaS providers like Microsoft Azure or Google AppEngine, CDNs like EdgeCast, NetDNA or Akamai and many more.  This will be the unique chance to hear about the state of global cloud infrastructure and learn how they compare and what it means specifically for you.


Marty Kagan of Cedexis will review his organization's research, collected from billions of samples across cloud and CDN providers, about the performance and uptime of public clouds.

Marty Kagan has been leading the development of products and services in the web caching, content delivery, and application acceleration space since 1996. Prior to co-founding Cedexis, Marty was Vice President of Engineering at Jive Software and Akamai Technologies, Director of Technology for Akamai International, and part of the original Cache Engine skunk-works team at Cisco Systems. He has co-authored 9 patents.


With deep experience in delivery networks and performance optimization, Cedexis is the global expert in multi-cloud strategies. Today, over 200 media, retail, luxury and consumer brands count on Cedexis for 100% availability, optimal web performance, flexibility and choice that drives traffic and revenue at lower cost and risk.

Factual is in the Gateway West building, next to the Westfield Century City mall on the east side. It's the only building with big red "Westfield" signs on top.

We recommend you park at the mall. You get 3 hours free and our building is a short easy walk: Exit from the mall parking garage up to ground level, head east, pass the Lens Crafters, and you'll be able to enter the west side of 1801. Then just hit the elevators to go up to floor 14, and Factual is in Suite 1450.
