ArcticEvening Stockholm, Sweden – 29.3.2012
Our second ArcticEvening of the year will be held in Stockholm on the 29th of March. The theme of the event will be the future of commerce and to make it all the more exciting, we have three fantastic Swedish companies at the event to share their views. We'll be having a panel discussion with Klarna, Wrapp and iZettle to talk about how they see the commerce changing and evolving through technology, but also how consumers are changing their behaviour.
We will be opening doors on the Thursday 29th of March at 18.00. Please be there on time. We will have a more detailed program available at the event. We will also be serving some drinks to those who arrive early. The panel discussion with the three gentlemen listed below will go on for about an hour or so and the rest of the evening is reserved for mingling and networking.

Amazon Web Services
In 2006, Amazon Web Services (AWS) began offering IT infrastructure services to businesses in the form of web services -- now commonly known as cloud computing. One of the key benefits of cloud computing is the opportunity to replace up-front capital infrastructure expenses with low variable costs that scale as a business grows. With the Cloud, businesses no longer need to plan for and procure servers and other IT infrastructure weeks or months in advance. Instead, they can instantly spin up hundreds or thousands of servers in minutes and deliver results faster.
The AWS platform has grown rapidly since the launch of the first service and it is now the underlying infrastructure for businesses around the world from start-ups to enterprises to government agencies. AWS has hundreds of thousands of customers in over 190 countries leveraging the services from infrastructure locations in the U.S., Europe, South America, Singapore, and Japan.
Companies around the world using AWS range from smaller, fast-growing companies such as Playfish, Airbnb and Supercell to larger companies such as Netflix, NASA and News International.
