Events Update: Where to find Red Hat’s financial services team this fall

If there’s one thing open source gets high marks for, it’s the incredibly strong foundation of communities (there are more than 90,000 community members across 183 countries working on OpenStack alone!). And in our opinion, there’s nothing better than stepping outside our offices and into the communities, be they OpenStack contributors, Red Hat partners, and our customers. This fall, we have plenty of opportunities to do just that, with a solid schedule of events all over the world.

We look forward to talking with you about open banking, digital engagement, transactional efficiency, and more. Keep reading for details on where you can find us, and we look forward to seeing you wherever our paths cross this fall.

Telcos can get an edge to deliver demanding new services with hyperconvergence technology

The telecommunications industry is preparing for a very different world – one where power at the edge of service providers’ networks will be critical. Consumers and businesses alike increasingly want to take advantage of new technologies like connected vehicle communications and immersive virtual reality experiences. But these applications require real-time processing, low-latency connections and, in many cases, a new network infrastructure.

The future is open – is your business at risk?

Have you ever experienced buyer’s remorse? Maybe you bought something significant on a whim like a new car or the latest cool gadget, without thinking it completely through, and a few days or weeks later you wonder why you now own something that doesn’t really deliver what you were expecting.

These same experiences can occur in the service provider and telecommunications industries. There’s a lot of hype around the latest technologies saving money, increasing revenues, and expanding wallet share with customers.  Meanwhile, are service providers really getting the business benefits they expect from these technologies? As consumers, most of us don’t even think much about these challenges. Instead, we’re focused on finding improvements for our lives and economic well-being by searching for choice both in the goods and services that we consume, and in how we consume them.

Red Hat expands partner program to support telco-class offerings

Telecommunications companies have seen explosive growth in network traffic in recent years due in large part to over-the-top (OTT) service providers like Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, and other apps that demand high network bandwidth. Given that these services are not likely going to stop operation anytime soon – and that new OTT services are being introduced at an accelerated rate – telcos are left needing significantly more network capacity.

Back to the Future of High Performance Computing

HPC
As I gear up to attend the 2018 Rice Oil & Gas HPC Conference in Houston, I take pause and think about the journey that the science of High Performance Computing (HPC) has been through and more importantly, am curious about where it is headed. When I had spoken about sustaining an ecosystem of Open Innovation at this conference last year, I had the privilege of meeting Earl Dodd, an industry expert on HPC. I happened to have an opportunity to meet Earl recently and engaged in an insightful conversation about HPC. Let us just say our conversation sprouted the idea of doing a multi-part podcast starting with the basics and looking ahead to the future. We hope you’ll join us as we head “Back to the Future” of HPC through podcasts that define what HPC is and explore where HPC is headed.

Podcast 1: Basics of High Performance Computing

Podcast 2: Where is HPC headed?

Updated 26 June 2018: Podcast 3: Making HPC Real A podcast with Dave Pearah, the CEO of the HDF Group on the essential components vital to making HPC real with standards and libraries that serve as catalysts across the ecosystem.
