Enterprise-class cloud computing must provide effective isolation of workloads to ensure security and performance. In most cloud environments, the virtualization layer is the primary provider of these capabilities; but virtualization has limitations in areas such as granularity, performance, and ISV support.
OpenShift, Red Hat’s Platform as a Service (PaaS) portfolio, makes it possible to run thousands of applications for multiple users on a single virtual machine (or physical server) while ensuring secure separation of compute resources.
In this session, attendees will explore the features of Red Hat Enterprise Linux that enable OpenShift to achieve secure, performant multi-tenancy within a single operating system instance (including: SELinux, cgroups, and Linux container technology (namespaces)).
This session will be of interest to those who want an in-depth understanding of OpenShift and those who need to manage the performance and security of multiple workloads (including virtual machines) on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Hibernate, a JBoss Community project, is the world’s most successful object relational mapper (ORM). Red Hat JBoss Data Grid, which is based on the JBoss Community project Infinispan, is a high-performance, transactional key/value store. These two very different technologies are pillars of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6; and there are many ways to mix them in an endless combination of configurations.
In this session, Sanne Grinovero, will discuss a few of the most effective ways these components have been integrated to solve real-world problems, including smarter caching, hybrid data stores, and state-of-the-art full-text and information extraction.

|Business and IT strategy alignment||Wednesday, June 12||2:30 pm - 3:30 pm||1.0 / 5.0|
The increasing demand for new business applications and services has put a strain on development teams and the overall enterprise IT organization. Developers are seeking greater agility and efficiency and putting greater demands on IT leaders to enable them. And those IT leaders are looking to standardize and accelerate developer workflows, improve operational efficiency, and make more efficient use of infrastructure. Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) holds great promise for addressing many of these challenges, but needs to be available in a form that an enterprise can adopt and trust.
In this session, Joe Fernandes, Dan Juengst, and John Keck will explain how PaaS can help address the challenges that are facing enterprise IT teams. They will also demonstrate, using a real customer example, how Red Hat can enable organizations to deploy an enterprise PaaS platform with OpenShift Enterprise.

Many of today’s enterprises are working under the false assumption that there is a trade off between consumer-centric file sharing and corporate IT policy compliance. This assumption is common because market-leading Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions for file syncing and sharing are not designed around enterprise IT needs. They represent growing risks with vendor lock-in, data security, compliance, and data ownership.
Fortunately, by leveraging innovative open source solutions from Red Hat and ownCloud, enterprises can provide a simple-to-use file syncing and sharing solution for employees. And this solution enables enterprises to have greater control over valuable intellectual property.
In this session, representatives from Vizuri, ownCloud, and Red Hat will:
Vizuri will demonstrate a hybrid cloud file-sync and share SaaS solution, designed using OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat, ownCloud, and Red Hat Storage Server, that delivers an integrated mobile, desktop, and web-based solution.

|The road ahead||Wednesday, June 12||10:40 am - 11:40 am||2.0 / 5.0|
Linux container technology allows a customer to carve a system out into isolated containers, and run applications securely within the confines of the containers. It facilitates multi-tenancy, which allows IT organizations to take better advantage of the large servers available in their datacenter. While multi-tenancy provides great flexibility for server resource management, especially for service providers, it introduces additional complexity, especially related to the security of applications and data that reside on the same server.
In this session, Bhavna Sarathy and Daniel Walsh will discuss resource management, namespacing, and the use of SELinux to tighten the security of Linux containers. Attendees will learn about the Linux container roadmap for Red Hat Enterprise Linux products and view a demonstration of secure Linux containers.

Come back for round two of the popular (and always fun) rich client smack down! Some of our well-known contenders are back: HTML5/JDF, RichFaces/JSF, and Errai/GWT. But this year, we’re bringing in a few more contenders like Cordova, iOS, and Android with AeroGear. We’re also opening the field to any that want to throw their hats in the ring.
In this session, industry experts from Red Hat, W3C, and the community will show why their technologies are the present and future of mobile and rich client applications. They will discuss high-level concerns like trends in client technology frameworks and core enterprise concerns like security, off-line support, and data synchronization.
This is not a sit-and-listen kind of session. At the beginning of the session, sign up for a five-minute slot to push your own favorite choice. We want to hear from you, so come with your questions and comments about directions, best practices, what you have struggled with, etc. We’ll also be polling the audience and will have some special treats for those attending.
