Did you catch our summaries of day one and day two? Check 'em out if you haven't!


The last day of Summit was far more mellow than the previous two days since the partner pavilion had shut down and many people had gone home. Those who remained stayed for the labs, sessions, and networking opportunities. So this post will touch upon some of that -- but we'll also recap some miscellany from the show we didn't show you earlier.

So with that, off to...

The sessions

We started the day with Bhavna Sarathy to get the roadmap for the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor (RHEVH). Bhavna kicked off the session by asking for a show of hands, "How many of you are on VMWARE?" a smattering of hands shot up. One person said, "Sorry!" much to the amusement of the crowd. We forgive you, VMWARE user. Bhavna provided a short history of RHEVH along with some interesting slides:

Of particular interest, Bhavna touched upon SELinux, a component of RHEVH that provides virtual machine separation via a sandbox. By isolating virtual machines, those that are attacked are unable to affect host machines or even other virtual machines. RHEVH also allows for direct assignment and hardware virtualization. So one NIC isn't simply one device -- it can be multiple virtual devices.

Bhavna also covered some new features expected in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 such as:

  • Performance (auto NUMA balancing, Hyper-V enlightenment in KVM)
  • Scalability (guest memory limit)
  • Security; random number generator, sys call filtering with sec comp
  • Storage: multi-queue SCSI


On our way to a lab, we passed by @mattdm who, we were surprised to see, was wearing a Project Atomic shirt. Too cool! We had no idea they were available yet.

Back on track: Labs

We stopped off at one lab:

Then jumped to Ben England’s (Principal S/W engineer, Red Hat) RHS performance session. Check out some improvements in RHS since last year:

We've also got some libgfapi tips:

And some performance testing results:

Then we headed back to a lab:

And captured this vine summarizing what was involved:


On our way out of the conference center, we had an opportunity for a brief photo op:

Red Hat was giving away this awesome USB drive in the partner pavilion:

2014-04-15 12.08.06 2014-04-15 12.08.17 2014-04-15 12.09.14

It was filled with case studies and performance metrics for Red Hat Storage vs. competing products.

Next up, we'd be remiss if we didn't show you how the LEGO mosaic turned out. Here's a during/completed comparison for you:

2014-04-15 11.56.59 2014-04-16 12.39.58

Not bad! Those 23,000 pieces were donated to San Francisco Public Schools.

That's it for our recaps from the Summit itself. We captured a few interviews from the show that we'll be posting in the days and weeks to come -- stay tuned, and thanks for reading.
