In my last blog, we reiterated the definition of blockchain — “a distributed, decentralized transaction ledger saved by each node in the network, a peer-to-peer system with no central authority or database which manages the transaction flow” , and discussed the many ways that financial institutions can plan for and capitalize on blockchain, looking specifically at use cases in insurance, remittance, asset management, trade finance, and know your customer (KYC).
In mid-June, we’ll be joining thousands in China for The Linux Foundation’s OPNFV Summit to talk all things Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), in particular to accelerate the evolution of open source NFV and an integrated, open reference platform built by industry leaders and innovators. We at Red Hat believe that using this open reference platform will accelerate the NFV evolution. We hope you can join us at the JW Marriott in Beijing, China June 12-15.
More often, companies are looking closely at, and adopting, containers in their IT operations. After all, containers have broad appeal. But they also change how companies develop, deploy and manage applications, and security is particularly important. Join this webinar, now available on demand, to learn all about best practices for container security, and to get a closer look at the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.
Plenty of telcos have either already committed to, or are actively investigating, network functions virtualization (NFV) running on OpenStack platform to help them increase network agility and mitigate costs. We at Red Hat firmly believe NFV + OpenStack is the infrastructure of modern telecommunications.
As a new Red Hatter, focused on the financial services industry and attending my first Red Hat Summit, I was truly blown away by the stories our financial services customers shared on the main stage, during many breakouts and panel discussions, and as a part of our Financial Services Industry session. Hosting Summit in my hometown, Boston made it even more special. I had the opportunity to share the beauty of a crisp early morning run along the Seaport district with dozens of Red Hat Summit attendees, as well as the ultimate baseball experience that only comes from a night at Fenway Park — especially when the Red Sox win! All the while, talking with people who are passionate about the open source community and empowering the individual — what a great experience!
We at Red Hat love to talk about how open source technologies and Red Hat solutions help companies around the world innovate and excel. Every now and then, though, it’s nice to talk about – and be recognized for – our own innovation. Just recently Red Hat was awarded a 2016 Omega Award for Sustained Innovation from ACG Research, an analyst and consulting firm that focuses on the service providers’ networking and the telecom industry.
This week kicks off OpenStack Summit in Boston, and Red Hat’s there! We are a headline sponsor and are participating in scores of sessions and presentations during the conference May 8-11 at Hynes Convention Center. Several of these are telco related, covering everything from network functions virtualization (NFV), containers, infrastructure as a service (IaaS), distributed monitoring, and more!
Telco is getting a lot of attention at Red Hat Summit, taking place May 2-4 in Boston! Join us on Thursday for an informal gathering to discuss the latest trends facing our industry, and stick around for our afternoon session entitled “Are you being served? Containers, microservices and the cloud-native telco,” where we’ll dive into benefits and implementation strategies around these topics.
To remain competitive and primed for growth, today’s service providers need agile, efficient, flexible infrastructure that manages the ever-increasing complexity in the data center. Businesses are looking to solutions that deliver virtualization, containerization, orchestration, business process management (BPM), and automation to meet market demands and regulatory shifts. Join us for two presentations on the hot topic of digital transformation and engagement at Red Hat Summit, May 2-4 in Boston, to learn how your business can improve operations.
Growth in mobility, big data and of course, IoT (Gartner forecasts there’ll be 8.4 billion Internet connected devices in use worldwide in 2017!), are driving telcos to explore and invest in things like software-define networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), and DevOps to remain competitive and grow market share. Join us at Red Hat Summit this week where we’ll be sharing information on tools to support your NFV applications and a design approach to bridge DevOps and business automation in two sessions on Tuesday.
