Application-centric packaging with Docker & Linux containers

Daniel Riek — Senior director, Systems Engineering & Design, Red Hat
Lars Herrmann — Senior director, Product and Business Strategy, Red Hat

A new, application-centric IT architecture can prove challenging for the traditional packaging and deployment of a single, unified runtime enterprise operating system environment. Virtualization, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and other cloud technologies demand a more modular approach to Linux deployment based on optimized images and runtime environments controlled by the application. Virtualization has resulted in virtual machine sprawl, with an explosion of independent operating system instances and fragmented solutions.

The emergence of Docker and Linux containers in Red Hat solutions, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, and OpenShift, provides a new, higher-level approach to software packaging and deployment using modern IT architecture.

In this session, we’ll:

  • Explain the role of application-centric packaging with Docker and Linux containers across the Red Hat product portfolio.
  • Show how Docker complements the existing packaging and deployment models and how container technology enriches the classic runtime paradigm.
  • Cover how IT departments, developers, and ISVs can benefit directly from the application-centric approach to Red Hat Enterprise Linux, OpenStack, and OpenShift.
  • Discuss the technology roadmap for Docker and containers across the Red Hat product portfolio.

Scholastic moves to the cloud with Red Hat

Santosh Satyan — Manager, Application Development, Scholastic
Daryn McCool — Manager, Digital and e-Commerce Engineering, Scholastic
Jerome Boutaud — Senior product manager, Red Hat

Scholastic is working with Red Hat to transform publishing industry IT, allowing the faster, cheaper, more consistent, and more reliable delivery of IT services.

The problem: Datacenters with proprietary hardware and software required capital investments for each new business initiative. Therefore, an excessive amount of time was required to order and build all the systems by hand, which increased the time to market and reduced business agility. Governance was a collection of documents that had to be followed manually, audited manually, and maintained manually.

The solution: Using Red Hat solutions, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and automation tools, Scholastic was able to provide solutions to the businesses in a completely different, innovative way. (The solutions included: Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Cloud Access, Red Hat Satellite, Directory Server, Red Hat JBoss EAP, Red Hat JBoss Fuse, Red Hat JBoss Data Grid, and OpsCode Chef.) These solutions are enabling Scholastic to into a public cloud while removing the datacenter management obligation entirely.

The result: Scholastic provisioned a server and deployed a new Red Hat JBoss Middleware application in development within 1 hour, and will have more than 90% of its applications in the cloud this year.

In this session, Scholastic reps will:

  • Detail the steps they took on their journey to the cloud.
  • Discuss how Red Hat helped in that journey.
  • Share guidelines for running effective migration strategies and load tests.
  • Share best practices for exposing legacy systems through web services to build service-oriented architecture (SOA) applications for high availability, redundancy, monitoring, and management with zero down time in a cloud environment.

PaaS anywhere: Deploy OpenShift Enterprise in your environment of choice

Isaac Christoffersen — Architect, Vizuri

Choice matters. And OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat is the only Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) product that runs in the hosting environment of your choice.

While true PaaS products provide a level of infrastructure abstraction so developers can be more productive, choosing the right environment to host your PaaS product is critical. You must take many factors into consideration, like cost, availability, scalability, and manageability. Having a PaaS product that’s truly environment-agnostic can maximize your options and help you make the choice that best fits your needs.

Come see a demo of deploying OpenShift Enterprise to multiple public cloud providers and within local virtual machines. By using common provisioning tools and the various cloud vendor APIs, you’ll see the realization of open, hybrid PaaS. You’ll also learn about considerations when running OpenShift Enterprise in these different environments, and monitoring strategies for proactively maintaining the health of an OpenShift Enterprise environment.

Deploying Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform in the enterprise with FlexPod

Jon Benedict — Technical marketing engineer, NetApp
Steven Carter — Solutions architect, Cisco
Colin Devine — Principal product marketing manager, Red Hat

While several enterprise customers are considering open source solutions such as OpenStack, many don’t want to give up the level of support or integration they’ve come to depend on. They also don’t want to deploy OpenStack on an infrastructure that is difficult to scale up or automate. So what’s the solution?

Deploying Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform on FlexPod provides a fully supported cloud platform that can scale, while also providing all of the APIs needed to automate the infrastructure. In this session, you’ll learn how to deploy Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform with the FlexPod datacenter solution, a pre-validated, scale-out infrastructure built with Cisco UCS, Cisco Nexus, and NetApp storage.

Building open clouds with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, OpenStack, & IBM

Host:

Adam Jollans — Program director, Cross-IBM Linux and Open Virtualization Strategy, IBM

Panelists:

Michael Day — IBM Distinguished Engineer, chief virtualization architect, Open Systems, IBM
Jeff Jameson — Senior principal product marketing manager, Red Hat

Cost, scalability, and security are key considerations when delivering cloud services. Cloud service providers building public and private clouds need to keep infrastructure cost down in order to price competitively, and must ensure stellar security and scalability in multi-tenant environments. Open technologies, such as OpenStack, Linux, and Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM), help deliver on these requirements for open clouds. And, infrastructure matters. That’s why open clouds run on IBM systems.

In this panel, industry experts will discuss:

  • When and how to use open components to build competitive cloud services.
  • The usage of KVM, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, and OpenStack with IBM hardware and software in enterprise virtualization and cloud initiatives, covering who is using it and where and how it’s being used.
  • Business benefits being realized with KVM, OpenStack, Red Hat, and IBM technology.
  • The widespread adoption of KVM.

Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform and Wildfly (the JBoss Community project previously known as “JBoss Application Server”) have redefined how people view Java EE and enterprise middleware. You don’t have to choose between lightweight and nimble or scalable and robust. These platforms deliver a lightweight core architecture with modular enterprises services; and they have allowed users to re-imagine what they can do with Java middleware.

As we move toward another major release of Red Hat JBoss EAP, we invite our community of users to the WildFly/EAP team to discuss the future of application platforms and help us shape the future.
