SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., June 11 -- GigaOM revealed its picks for Cloud Trailblazers: 10 for 2013. These 10 up and comers are rethinking and redesigning internet infrastructure for the next generation of cloud computing. They will present their ideas on stage at GigaOM’s Structure conference, being held June 19-20 in San Francisco.
The ones to watch are:

The infrastructure that supported the web in its early days is no longer up to the job. As businesses and consumers rely increasingly on the internet, companies that provide the underlying computing power are remaking the hardware and software on which those services depend. In doing so, they have changed the culture inside IT organizations, disrupted old-line businesses and made it easier than ever to build a web-based business.
“We’ve documented those shifts for the last six years at Structure, but this year we’re looking ahead,” said Stacey Higginbotham, Senior Writer for GigaOM and Chair of Structure 2013. “We’ve found 10 big thinkers who are already planning the next generation of infrastructure and solving problems most companies aren’t even anticipating yet.”
Structure is GigaOM’s flagship event on cloud computing and internet infrastructure. More than 70 of the most influential technologists in cloud computing will take the stage, including:
