This track shows you how to implement and operate your private, public, or hybrid cloud. Example topics include: provisioning and flexing workloads, using Red Hat products in public clouds, and running an on-premise IaaS and PaaS. Attendees will learn best practices for making the most effective use of public clouds, architecting and managing on-premise and hybrid clouds, monitoring hybrid cloud environments, and provisioning applications across their infrastructures of choice.
Software-defined Networking (SDN) is an emerging architecture that is dynamic, manageable, cost-effective, and adaptable, making it ideal for the high-bandwidth, dynamic nature of today’s applications. This architecture decouples the network control and forwarding functions enabling the network control to become directly programmable and the underlying infrastructure to be abstracted for applications and network services.
In this session, you’ll learn:

This track showcases community leaders and their innovative upstream work, as well as the certified commercial solutions that the Red Hat partner ecosystem brings to market. Attendees will also gain a better understanding of the value of a Red Hat subscription and learn how to extract the maximum value from their investments.
CentOS and Red Hat are embarking on a new journey together in the future of community development platforms. “CentOS and Red Hat joining forces” wasn’t a headline many Linux users expected to hear at the beginning of 2014. Now that the news is out, it’s time to write the next chapter of the CentOS story; and in this session, you’ll get a first-row seat to hear what’s coming next.
The “new CentOS” is expanding in scope to become more focused on additional community developments and domains. It will have an open governance that allows interested developers to build and maintain variants of CentOS, which can include new software and changes to any core component for that variant. Since the announcement of this special interest group (SIG)-driven process, many people have stepped forward to form SIGs around cloud (including OpenStack and OpenShift Origin), web hosting, desktops, and so forth.
In this session, you’ll get a chance to meet, hear from, and ask questions of several CentOS Board members. These include long-time CentOS contributors and members of the newly convened Governing Board, who are instrumental in engaging with Red Hat and helping to shape the new CentOS.

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.
In this session, we’ll provide an update on the current state of the GlusterFS community and discuss future directions of the project. Attendees will learn:
