Talk multi-cloud infrastructure

Time is flying and there is less than one month left before the first event that Canonical & Ubuntu organise in Italy. The main topic of the live talk will be multi-cloud infrastructure, having as speakers both Canonical experts & partners.

On the 12th of May 2021, the 2-hours event will be held on BrightTalk. From live talks from our speakers to Q&A sessions and the opportunity to have a technical conversation with Canonical experts, there will be plenty of occasions to learn about multi-cloud infrastructure.
