This track features the developers who write the code, the solution architects who work in the field, and the product managers who contribute to product direction. Example topics include: deployment techniques, performance optimization, and system management, and sessions will include technology overviews, roadmaps, and deep dives. Attendees will learn how to increase performance and scalability, implement security policies, meet service level agreements, and more effectively manage deployments.
A software collection is a suite of multiple software stacks, or collections, that include newer versions of the software that developers know and love. This lets operations teams deliver these on top of the trusted Red Hat Enterprise Linux platform without sacrificing infrastructure stability by relying on unsupported solutions.
In this session, you’ll learn how:
|Application and platform infrastructure||Tuesday, April 15||3:40 pm - 4:40 pm||3.0 / 5.0|
This track features sessions covering the trends and strategies driving the future of enterprise computing. Example topics include: big data, mobile, software-defined storage, and intelligent systems. Attendees will be among the first to know about what's coming from Red Hat and how to better plan for shifts in the IT landscape.
Hyperscale computing promises to revolutionize the way the cloud is physically realized over the coming years. It combines enhancements at the software and hardware levels, like on-chip management and fabric infrastructure, and brings established industry titans together with upstart newcomers.
In this panel, thought leaders from the emerging hyperscale industry will share their thoughts and answer questions as they seek to address the challenges, opportunities, and emerging trends in hyperscale computing.
Topics: Big data, Fedora, Interoperability, Manageability, Open hybrid cloud, OpenStack, Portability, Projects, RDO, Red Hat Cloud, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform
|Emerging technologies||Wednesday, April 16||3:40 pm - 4:40 pm||2.0 / 5.0|
This track features how-to (step-by-step) sessions that describe aligning the activities relating to people, processes, and technologies with long-term business objectives. Example topics include: management, optimization, and reporting. Attendees will learn about practical, proven solutions that will help them meet tomorrow's business demands.
In this highly interactive session, you’ll learn how Red Hat collaboratively works with the National Security Agency (NSA), Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), and other stakeholders to develop government and industry policy to secure Red Hat products using open source principles. In addition, you’ll hear how a similar methodology can be applied to other government and industry regulations like PCI, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX).
Using the SCAP (Security Content Automation Protocol) Security Guide as a case study, you’ll also learn how human-interpreted policy can be embodied in machine-interpreted SCAP. See how that same SCAP content can be used to help securely lock down systems when provisioned and aided with continuous monitoring using Red Hat Satellite. The DISA STIG (security technical information guide) for Red Hat Enterprise Linux will also be used as a case study in this session.
This session is an update to the 2013 presentation, extended to demonstrate:
Topics: Cost savings, Fedora, Flexibility, Interoperability, Manageability, Open hybrid cloud, OpenStack, Projects, Red Hat Cloud, Red Hat Consulting, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, Red Hat Satellite, Red Hat Storage, Red Hat Training, Reliability, Security
|IT efficiency||Wednesday, April 16||1:20 pm - 2:20 pm||4.0 / 5.0|
This track highlights the features and capabilities that position Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 as the platform for next-generation IT. Sessions will cover topics specific to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 beta, ranging from Linux containers, the OpenLMI framework, and cross-domain identity management to the powerful system and performance management tools. Attendees can use examples of real-world use cases and the experiences of beta participants to plan their own implementations.
Linux systems often come with powerful capabilities—and steep learning curves—for system administrators. Despite progress toward automating and standardizing system management, there is still a need to customize some systems. SysAdmins need to configure complex local storage and networks with multiple NICs, manage users (both locally and using MS Active Directory or IPA), install software, manage system services, get hardware configuration, and perform a wide range of detailed tasks against a specific server.
In this session, you’ll learn how OpenLMI,the Linux Management Infrastructure program, delivers remote administration of production servers, ranging from high-end enterprise servers with complex network and storage configurations to virtual guests. We’ll discuss how OpenLMI:
|Road to RHEL 7||Tuesday, April 15||10:40 am - 11:40 am||3.0 / 5.0|
High availability application clustering has changed significantly in Linux since the release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. In this session, you’ll learn about new clustering technologies in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 beta. Topics covered will include:
|Road to RHEL 7||Tuesday, April 15||1:20 pm - 2:20 pm||4.0 / 5.0|
Many Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 customers will soon consider migrating to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Red Hat now offers tools for engineers to evaluate migration options and plan their upgrades accordingly. In this session, you’ll see those tools in action during a live demo of an upgrade.
|Road to RHEL 7||Wednesday, April 16||4:50 pm - 5:50 pm||3.0 / 5.0|
