Adobe Systems, a long-time user of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, wanted to offer its enterprise customers easy access to sandbox resources to evaluate and prototype solutions using Adobe products. Turning to the cloud, Adobe used Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Amazon Web Services (AWS) to not only deliver a sandbox solution, but also to offer customers a Software- as-a-Service (SaaS) option for deploying Adobe-based solutions. Today, this solution helps customers simplify deployment, lower cost of ownership, and accelerate time to value.
In this session, Adobe’s Mitch Nelson will detail this solution and discuss standard software deployment models, scaling, BU/DR, and cross-geo replication of AEM/CQ.

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|
Enterprise datacenter virtualization and cloud computing have put new pressures on the network. Traditionally, virtual compute workloads gained access to the network through simple hypervisor resident virtual switches bridging to physical VLANs. As these workloads scale in the cloud and move dynamically throughout the datacenter, the limits of a simple VLAN solution are stressed.
In this session, Chris Wright will look at new protocols and encapsulations like OpenFlow and VXLAN, new technologies such as Open vSwitch, and new concepts such as the software-defined network controller. He will examine how these innovations work together to reshape networking in the virtual datacenter.
