Red Hat JBoss Data Services Platform: Overview & Roadmap

Ken Johnson — Director, Product Management, Red Hat

Most organizations have a wealth of data stores (e.g., warehouses, files, databases, spreadsheets, applications, etc.) and their various formats, structures, semantics, and ownership make it difficult to turn this data into actionable information. Red Hat JBoss Data Services Platform enables you to tackle this challenge by virtualizing your data and data access, turning the data you have into the information you need.

In this session, Ken Johnson will provide an overview of Red Hat JBoss Data Services Platform, review common use cases, and discuss its future roadmap, which includes integration with other Red Hat technologies, big data applicability, and data services in the cloud.

JavaEE.next: 7, 8, & Beyond

Dr. Mark Little — Vice President, Software Engineering, Red Hat

Java EE 8 will likely aim to bring Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) providers and application developers together so that portable applications can be deployed on any cloud infrastructure, therefore reaping all of its benefits in terms of scalability, elasticity, and multitenance. And in the lifetime of Java EE 8, we will see an emphasis on the modularization of the underlying Java SE platform. Java EE will also include updates for HTML5, caching, NoSQL, Ployglot programming, MapReduce, JSON, REST, and improvements to existing core APIs.

In this session, attendees will gain insight into the future of the Java EE platform, starting with Java EE 7.

Red Hat JBoss Data Grid & the Hibernate Suite: A Love Affair

Sanne Grinovero — Senior Software Engineer, Red Hat

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. He will also preview the future of Hibernate object grid mapper (OGM).

Replication Between Datacenters with Red Hat JBoss Data Grid

Bela Ban — Consulting Software Engineer, Red Hat

The datacenters of today’s global businesses are often located in various sites around the world. And in order to help ensure their safety, the data is often replicated both within sites and between sites. This cross-site replication is challenging as links between sites are often bandwidth constrained and have high latency.

In this session, Bela Ban will provide an overview of Red Hat JBoss Data Grid’s cross-site replication functionality, which stores data redundantly across multiple sites. He will also briefly discuss architecture and configuration.

For the majority of the session, Bela will demonstrate the product’s response to two scenarios: 1) site failure (where he’ll kill a site) and 2) follow-the-sun (where he’ll demonstrate a graceful failover from one site to another). In both cases, attendees will see that client failover from one site to another site is achieved while the data is still available.

Attendees are encouraged to fire up their own clients, create some data, and verify that their data is preserved across site failures during the session. They will leave the session with a better understanding of what cross-site clustering is and how to configure and run it, as well as Red Hat and JBoss Community plans for the future of xsite replication.
