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.

Best practices for PaaS, OpenStack, & cloud adoption

David S. Linthicum — SVP, Cloud Technology Partners
Gordon Haff — Cloud evangelist, Red Hat

Today, using a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) to automate development workflows within private and public clouds is the clear industry direction. But the full benefits of enterprise PaaS come about through considering PaaS along with community-driven and standards-based Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), like OpenStack, and cloud management platforms and application life-cycle management.

Join David Linthicum, internationally recognized industry expert and thought leader, as he takes the mystery out of defining a cloud strategy. He’ll provide examples of existing best practices, emerging technologies, and the integration of these technologies to best support the business. This includes considering all aspects of building and operating your infrastructure and application environments. You’ll also gain a sound understanding of the intersection of IaaS, PaaS, and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) to help you define your own cloud strategy and give your organization the best chance of success.

In his session and interactive discussion with Red Hat cloud evangelist Gordon Haff, David will answer your specific questions along with:

  • Which emerging technologies and standards are most important to watch?
  • Which businesses and industries can serve as models for your cloud adoption?
  • What are common pitfalls in building and deploying clouds, and how can enterprises avoid them?
  • What does the cloud model mean for application architectures?
  • What are the advantages of bringing open cloud infrastructure like OpenStack into a PaaS strategy?

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.

Running & monitoring OpenShift Enterprise

Anderson Dang — systems administrator, PayPal
Mike McGrath — Principal OpenShift architect, Red Hat
Dan Trainor — Consultant, Red Hat

Running a large private Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) can be challenging. But understanding how the systems work—and how to make them work for you—can help your operations team work more effectively when compared to traditional environments and architecture.

Using experience gained from traditional Red Hat Enterprise Linux environments, automation and scripting become a natural progression to controlling an OpenShift Enterprise environment. In this session, you’ll get details about how to monitor and run an OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat installation.

Mike will discuss lessons learned from his experience with Red Hat Enterprise Linux and running OpenShift Online, a large public PaaS. You’ll learn about:

  • Installation.
  • Monitoring.
  • Configuration management.
  • Auto-recovery.
  • Provisioning.
  • Cartridge troubleshooting.
  • Running OpenShift on OpenStack.

After this session, you should have a better understanding of how OpenShift architecture behaves in an on-premise environment. This includes:

MEAP, schMEAP. Who’s got you covered in mobile?

Jay Balunas — Mobile platform architect, Red Hat
Steve O'Keefe — Principal product marketing manager, Red Hat
Burr Sutter — Product management director, Developer Products, Red Hat

As mobile continues to revolutionize client development, application platforms need to include mobile-specific technologies like push notifications, offline support, and data synchronization. But the idea that you need completely new technologies such as a mobile enterprise application platform (MEAP) is misguided. Developers need to update existing platforms to include capabilities, tools, and techniques to meet the mobile challenge.

Hibernate OGM: Talking to NoSQL in Red Hat JBoss EAP

Gunnar Morling — Senior software engineer, Red Hat
Sanne Grinovero — Senior software engineer, Red Hat

With new NoSQL stores arriving to the market frequently, choosing the right datastore can be a tough challenge. Each store provides its own low-level APIs, and migrating from one store to another is anything but simple.

Hibernate Object/Grid Mapper (OGM) provides easy access to NoSQL stores via the well-known Java Persistence API (JPA). Java developers who know how to use JPA also know how to access their favorite NoSQL stores.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • How Hibernate OGM maps common JPA constructs to key-value, document, and graph datastores.
  • How to work with JPA on top of datastores such as Infinispan, MongoDB. and Neo4j and switch between them as a matter of configuration.
  • How to query for data using JP-QL and native queries.
  • How to use Hibernate OGM to access MongoDB on Red Hat’s PaaS, OpenShift by Red Hat.

This session is code-focused, with at least half the time spent coding and running tests in Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio. You’ll leave the session with a solid understanding of when to use (or not use) Hibernate OGM to handle everyday NoSQL challenges.
