DevOps Live




DevOps- no longer a question of why, but a question of how!

DevOpsThe last 18 months have been defining period for DevOps and the Fast IT landscape, with the utility and value of the DevOps workflow now understood and recognised by the majority of IT leaders responsible for optimising the efficiency of IT systems, and adoption booming.

The spinal properties of DevOps - speed, agility, teamwork and economies of scale – make this practice and culture a dream for every professional involved in application development and delivery, software updates and infrastructure change. In 2018 the DevOps methodology has begun to transcend software development and delivery with the framework becoming a watertight enabler for IT teams building, developing and operating rapidly-changing resilient systems at scale.

No surprises then that both enterprise and service providers are increasingly relying on DevOps and supporting technology to boost their competitive edge and enhance offerings. 

The home of containers



The container landscape is booming like never before across EMEA. In fact, Gartner anticipates that by the end of 2018, 50% of enterprises will be running containers in their production environments- a massively stark difference from even 12 months ago.

DevOps Live is officially partnered by Docker and, for 2019, we are delighted to host the Cloud Native Computing Foundation as premier sponsors. These unique relationships with two true pioneers in the container ecosystem make DevOps Live a “must attend” for any software lifecycle specialist and decision maker involved with the production of cloud native and/or containerised applications; offering our audience hands on time with the latest releases and developments across the container landscapes most used and prevalent platforms including Kubernetes, Docker Swarm and Prometheus.

“This is an outstanding event that delivers fantastic results for us. The audience is huge but, more importantly, the quality of the prospects in the room is absolutely top class and means we can access decision makers from multiple new customers across two days. This is our second year at the show and the rate at which we have seen it grow, both in terms of audience size and space, is testament to how Cloud Expo Europe and DevOps Live really delivers for everyone involved. I have been to many events during my lengthy career in the technology industry and I can happily say this is one of the best I have been to. This is an extremely important event for us and one we will not miss as we always see tremendous results.”
Marketing Manager, GitLab


“This was our first year at Cloud Expo Europe and DevOps Live and we have had an excellent show. The event was extremely busy, especially on the first day, but most pleasing of all was the quality and seniority of the delegates who joined the event. We joined DevOps Live to promote and talk about our DevOps for the database solution and met some extremely promising prospects across the two days. We are looking forward to seeing how these conversations will digest in our pipeline. Due to our positive experience at DevOps Live we are now evaluating other, regional events across the Cloud Expo Europe series, and are looking forward to being back in London for 2019’s version of Cloud Expo Europe and DevOps Live.”
EMEA Marketing Manager, Redgate Software


“This year has been good for us so far and having our Theatre session near to our stand has been a bonus. It was packed out which was really good and positive and we were able to direct people straight to our booth after. This show is an important event for us as we get to showcase our new products and meet new audiences - it’s great having everyone in one place! The highlight for this year has to be our session, it was amazing to talk about Puppet but also about DevOps in its entirety. 3 words to describe – Engaging, innovative and fun!”
Marketing Coordinator, Puppet


 “This is my first year exhibiting with this company, it’s always high volume which is good, the level and seniority of visitors is moving in the right direction which is a positive for me. A lot of people interested in the DevOps side which is interesting for us as a company. The quality of delegates has definitely improved from where it was, as a company we’re looking for a particular type of attendee, typically a developer or solutions architect, CTO or CIO space and we’ve seen quite a few of those so that is great. Cloud Expo Europe is important to us as a business because of the sheer visibility and the amount of footfall driven through the door. Our highlight has to be the engagement and dialogue on the stand which has been really strong.”
Senior Director Marketing, NGINX

As one of the fastest growing contributors to modern IT system development, the DevOps eco-system is loaded with technology developments and market trends that are constantly evolving.

Both ground breaking technology advances- including microservices, containers, serverless computing, Kubernetes- and forging market forces- like “CALMS”, DevSecOps, DataOps, Open Approaches- add to the complexity of understanding how to optimise a DevOps process and infrastructure. Getting it right delivers unrivalled advantages in system development, maintenance and evolution, but getting it wrong can be costly, laborious and time consuming. Navigating this minefield to find a solution that suits your specific business needs is essential.

DevOps Live offers two dedicated theatres of content addressing the latest technology developments and market trends; providing access to real life case studies from Europe’s leading DevOps programmes alongside in depth, technical outlines of the markets leading and newest technologies.

DevOps, Containers and Cloud Native Theatre:
Experience how and why DevOps and containers provide real value for developers, application lifecycle specialists and the wider IT team. Hear about the latest and emerging techniques and technologies (including Kubernetes, Mesosphere, Rancher) in the DevOps and containers space and understand how DevOps and containers are changing the IT landscape. Experts will share their theory on how these disciplines can improve interoperability, while creating a stable base for emerging technologies and practices.

DevOps Innovation Theatre:
Access the latest practices, solutions and technologies that are forging the future of DevOps. With DevOps becoming more familiar and, importantly, comfortable with IT teams, our DevOps Innovation Theatre addresses the latest trends that are compounding the value of DevOps as a business enabler. Focussing on topics ranging from Microservices to DevSecOps to “shifting left” to DevOps for the database (and more…) this theatre is a must attend for any IT player who wants to understand how to implement and deliver better DevOps.


If you’re a company that operates at the forefront of DevOps and Containers or are transforming the way enterprise develop, evolve and maximise IT systems, then get we want to hear from you!

  • "We wouldn't miss an opportunity to exhibit at Cloud Expo Europe – there is an excellent quality of delegate and the organisation is fantastic. The organisers really listen to what we say. In previous years, we've had development meetings which have been really refreshing. CloserStill really take on feedback from sponsors. The quality of business is also impressive – we have done over £40 million of business just from this show alone over the past two years. This year we've had even more quality conversations with lots of c-level executives and enterprise architects."
    Marketing Manager, Northern Europe, NTT

    UK Marketing Manager, T-Systems
  • "This year's show is going very well for us. We are seeing a lot of interest in various cloud-related IBM solutions. Our dedicated VIP area has been great for meetings and discussions. I've arranged lots of meetings with customers and potential clients over the course of the two days. The VIP area has attracted plenty of IT directors and CTOs which has been really great. You really do get everybody here – like-minded individuals sharing experiences and useful insights."
    Cloud Object Storage Sales, IBM
  • "We've been exhibiting at Cloud Expo Europe for a couple of years now. It's a huge opportunity for customer engagement and have a good chat with both existing and prospective clients. I've organised plenty of meetings to touch base with people – I wouldn't normally have the chance to see so many people in just two days! We see lots of senior level professionals here – IT directors and lead architects. It is important to have a presence here and get a message out to the audience. It introduces us to people who may not already know about us. We'll definitely be back in 2018!"
    Client Manager, Nutanix
  • "Cloud Expo Europe is always looking to push the boundaries. In an industry renowned for constant change, Cloud Expo Europe seeks to innovate whilst remaining relevant to its core audience of technologists, analysts and systems architects to remain ahead of the game. The event with its enviable keynote line up is specifically designed to get you to think outside the box whilst providing valuable and practical insight from leading cloud  practitioners.  It’s the one event that we place in the calendar without any hesitation, it has become a key element in our marketing strategy and provides us with a fantastic springboard for our new financial year.  We have yet to attend a Cloud Expo Europe where we have not gained a major return on our marketing investment having won significant new business worth hundreds of thousands of pounds each time we have exhibited. There is no such thing as a ‘sure thing’ when planning events but Cloud Expo Europe is as near to one as is possible."
