Here’s Lifehacker Australia’s very own Angus Kidman to fill you in on the details.

After many years of evolution, the cloud has taken shape as a key factor in the future of smart business infrastructure. But which cloud offerings suit which kinds of businesses? And how do we overcome critical concerns around data sovereignty, privacy, and reliability? We explore the essential elements of the cloud, what it brings to organisations, and the big issues around placing our trust in this delivery model. Is this really the end of your server room?

The broadcast will be live from Sydney’s Walsh Bay Theatre on Lifehacker from midday (AEST) on Thursday February 17, with live discussion on Twitter using the hashtag #tlines.
