Launching Secure-by-default Red Hat Enterprise Linux Instances on Amazon EC2 with Amazon VPC

Craig Carl — Solution Architect, Amazon Web Services
Thor Nolen — Solution Architect, Amazon Web Services

In this two-hour hands-on-lab, participants will use an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) to launch secure, private instances of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4. Participants will use the AWS Web Console to create a key pair and security groups, and launch instances with user data.

Amazon’s Craig Carl and Thor Nolen will review VPC connectivity options, including: hardware and software VPN, bastion hosts, and NAT. Participants will launch and configure a bastion host and use that host to securely connect to their private Amazon EC2 instances. At the conclusion of the lab, participants will better understand the Amazon VPC security model, subnets and routes, security groups, user data, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux on Amazon EC2.

Implementing & Managing an OpenShift Enterprise PaaS

Scott Collier — Principal Software Engineer, Red Hat
Miciah Masters — Software Engineer, Red Hat
Adam Miller — Senior Software Engineer, Red Hat
Steve Reichard — Principal Software Engineer, Red Hat
Vinny Valdez — Principal Architect, Red Hat
Grant Shipley — OpenShift Evangelist, Red Hat

OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat enables administrators to quickly serve application developer customers by deploying a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) infrastructure that streamlines the application service delivery process. OpenShift Enterprise does this in a highly-efficient, fine-grained, multi-tenant cloud architecture that maximizes infrastructure utilization. This enables developers to quickly focus on what matters to them: writing code.

Join us for an in-depth, 2-hour lab focusing on the system administration of OpenShift Enterprise and touching on the deployment of a PaaS application. This detailed and interactive lab will be assisted by the very friendly developers, engineers, and consultants working on OpenShift.

After an overview of OpenShift Enterprise, participants will each deploy his/her own basic PaaS in a configuration that consists of one broker and one node. A more advanced configuration consisting of a distributed architecture will be demonstrated and discussed. Using their own configuration, the participants will verify the successful installation. Various administrative actions will be demonstrated, prior to participants exploring them on their own.

The client tools will be installed and configured, allowing attendees to deploy an application either using a command line interface or the web-based console.

Suggested lab prerequisite: OpenShift PaaS Overview & Roadmap (Wed., 6/12 10:40-11:40 a.m. EST in room 311)

Topics: Java development, JBoss Community projects, OpenShift by Red Hat, Red Hat Cloud, Red Hat Consulting, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio, Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, Red Hat JBoss Portal
