About the O'Reilly Infrastructure & Ops Conference

Forward-thinking companies are transforming their IT infrastructures and operations into a more effective modern model—one that’s distributed, intelligent, and predictive. But it’s about more than just shuffling everything to the cloud. The implications of AI and automation are forcing engineering teams to completely rethink their foundational systems. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution to these challenges.

Introducing the O’Reilly Infrastructure & Ops Conference. It’s designed to provide the training and tools needed to successfully manage existing legacy systems while migrating to modern and responsive, predictive, scalable, and cost-effective infrastructure—without interrupting your day-to-day business.
