Check out this exclusive interview with cloud industry legend, Zachary Smith at the infra/STRUCTURE Summit, where Zachary shares his invaluable insights on workforce development and optimization.

With over 20 years of experience in the Cloud, Zachary has been instrumental in using software to build automated infrastructure platforms. He played a pivotal role in growing Voxel, a Linux-based hosting platform, into one of the earliest leading cloud hosting companies, before co-founding Packet in 2014.

Packet was aimed at empowering technology-enabled enterprises with automated bare metal infrastructure, regardless of its type or ownership. The company quickly became a leader in bare metal compute automation and was acquired by Equinix in March 2020.

Today, Zachary serves as the head of Edge Infrastructure at Equinix, where he leads the strategy, product, and go-to-market for the company’s bare metal compute and edge services platform. This is a must-watch for anyone interested in cloud infrastructure, data centers, and hyper-scale computing.
