This track provides overview and deep dive sessions that cover the products, features, and technologies for datacenter modernization and consolidation. Example topics include: storage migration, performance optimization, management of data in distributed applications, and middleware integration. Attendees will learn how to enable lines of business to rapidly respond to business events in an automated manner, automate rules-driven business processes, and integrate applications, data, and embedded devices across all cloud environments.
This talk builds on the “Best Practices for Red Hat Storage Server Performance” session (Thurs. at 4:50 p.m. EST) to explore design tradeoffs and performance implications for advanced use cases. Use cases include geo-replication, OpenStack Swift compatible Object store, and live virtual image stores including KVM-based virtualization such as Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization) and Red Hat Open Stack (RHOS).

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: technology overviews, roadmaps, and deep dives, deployment techniques, performance optimization, and system management. Attendees will learn how to increase performance and scalability, implement security policies, meet service level agreements, and more effectively manage deployments.
In this session, Mark Wagner will review performance and scale testing of Red Hat OpenStack, including management platform performance and individual node performance. He will also discuss the tools, methodologies, and strategies used in the testing. And using test data from Red Hat’s Performance Lab, Mark will demonstrate tunings that improve performance and show where these tunings will be applied to improve out-of-the-box performance. He will also reveal tips and tricks for achieving higher density.

This track covers the datacenter landscape. Example topics include: product comparisons, open source methodology, and product analysis that debunks common misconceptions. Attendees will learn how Red Hat cloud, middleware, operating system, storage, and virtualization products stack up against proprietary offerings and fit within the broader industry landscape.
There’s no single approach to building a cloud as IT teams aren’t trying to solve the exact same problem. That’s why Red Hat products are designed to work together to modernize your infrastructure and deliver the flexibility and agility promised by cloud computing.
In this session, Gordon Haff will provide examples of how Red Hat customers are using the company’s product portfolio to build clouds. These will include in-production examples that require cloud readiness and massive scalibility from Red Hat Storage Server and an example of using OpenShift Enterprise, Red Hat CloudForms, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux together.
Attendees will learn about a combination of case studies and use cases that demonstrate practical cloud solutions that use one or more Red Hat products. Learn how Red Hat technology can make you cloud ready!
