Red Hat is excited to announce one-day conference focused on Hybrid Cloud. Idea is to bring together a community of enterprise cloud professionals and open source contributors, have them share their vision and knowledge around hybrid cloud & give insight on best practices being adopted to optimize these solutions

We invite you exclusively for a one-day conference focused on Hybrid Cloud and DevOps automation strategies. We wish to help you and your organization succeed in the cloud segment .

So lets come together and build a strong hybrid cloud community. Construct an ecosystem to build and sharing knowledge the opensource way.

Who should attend :

The conference is designed for Technical Architects, Consultants, DevOps Engineers and Pre-Sales executives interested in knowing more about hybrid cloud and modern automation techniques.

How can you attend ?

This conference is designed for cloud professionals and hence the call for attendees will be followed by selection. Invitees would be finalized based on the attendee's relevance to the cloud technology or/and their contributions.

Excited? We encourage you to register yourself for this exclusive event to learn more about Hybrid cloud and Red HAT’s cloud portfolio - an amalgamation of open source technologies, container platform, massively-scalable private cloud infrastructure and unified management framework.


Conference Overview:

In this one-day conference, Red Hat experts, industry thought leaders and innovative customers will discuss on following key points:


Interoperability is the fundamental base of hybrid clouds. Without it, public clouds and private clouds can exist independently of one another but not be considered hybrid—even if they're being used by the same company. If an organization houses all customer-facing applications in the public cloud and all enterprise applications in a private cloud, pulling resources only from the cloud it’s stored on with no infrastructure between them, it's not hybrid. Hybrid clouds include multiple touch points and are composed of shared core software services that allow workloads, resources, platforms, and applications can migrate between environments.


It's possible to manage a hybrid cloud environment manually through multiple management tools, redundant policy implementations, and extra operations staff. But tools (like Red Hat® CloudForms) do exist to simplify the process—providing unified management and operations for hybrid environments. These unified management platforms abstract the underlying technology and consolidate the administrative tasks across environments, letting operators and users control environment lifecycles, self-service, automation, policy enforcement, and chargeback across deployments.


A private cloud can simplify scalability and provide on demand access to resources beyond what is easily accomplished by virtualization. Public clouds can make scaling even easier by providing access to a (theoretically) unlimited pool of resources. When both distributions are integrated in a hybrid environment, you can scale up or out as needed: Clouds support cloud-native applications by scaling out while virtualization supports traditional workloads by scaling up.


Take full advantage of container technologies by running application on stretched container cluster that can span across multiple platforms in your hybrid cloud environment. There is also need of high performing persistent storage backend for the container to rocket the performance and stability. Red Hat Gluster and Red Hat OpenShift is win-win combination for running business-critical workload on containers.

We will outline how Red Hat's latest integrated offerings can help your organization meet today's demands of the cloud strategy and evolve towards what's next. You'll hear what's new in the hybrid cloud in the opening keynote and then attend technical sessions structured specifically for hybrid cloud theme.

The registration is full.

In this one-day conference. You will learn about Red Hat OpenStack and its use cases, learn how to do Cloud orchestration and automation using cloud management tools that includes Red Hat Cloudforms and Red Hat Ansible. Understand how to migrate workloads in the hybrid cloud environment and much more aligned to Hybrid Cloud, Open Hybrid Cloud.

"There will also be on-demand, interactive demos showcasing cutting-edge solutions for hybrid cloud environment in the DemoTheatre."

Sessions Abstract :

OpenStack : Real world applications

With the growing trend to use cloud environments to achieve maximum benefits with the available resources in the organization, OpenStack has become a highly desired solution for IaaS in market with wide use-cases . Its rapid growth in feature development & active upstream involvement of all major vendors has been key to its success. Scalability and Shareability are the major factors which contribute to the success of any platform . We will be discussing how Red Hat OpenStack Platform can help you in automatically scale-out or scale-in your critical application serving instances in response to varying workloads for scalability and how one can share a single file system between multiple instances at the same time which constitutes towards shareability.

Workload migration strategies for Hybrid Cloud

Learn how to automate cross platform VMs migration, plan migration of VMs running on VMWare vSphere to RHV (Red Hat Virtualization 4.1) using combination of Red Hat CloudForms and the virt-v2v tool and cloud instances migration from Amazon EC2  to Red Hat OpenStack. Automation is key and  learn how it simplifies such complex migration activity.

CloudForms inventories current VMs and content, the migration steps are built as a CloudForms state machine, and the entire process is automated. As part of the process, virt-v2v tool is used to convert the VMWare images into a format that can be loaded onto RHV and launched as an instance. With this tool, we were able to migrate many virtual machines simultaneously with the click of a button.

Open Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure Adoption is Growing.

The great thing about cloud computing―and why its adoption has accelerated―is its massive possibility. No matter the IT needs, there’s some form of cloud that can help you work faster with less staff, lower costs, and fewer resources.

In fact , 70% of our customers named cloud as a top spending priority in 2017. However cloud success isn’t just about the technology; it’s about strategy. That’s where Red Hat comes in: with technology that can move other IT resources in sync with hybrid cloud migrations.

The Ideal environment you ask ? One that's most flexible, simplest to manage and of course at a low cost. Join to find out how Open Source is the only way to solve the challenges of hybrid cloud .

Value of OpenShift Everywhere

Organizations are increasingly moving applications to the hybrid cloud. They also need the flexibility to run those application workloads in the environment that best suits their business requirements—whether that's public clouds, private clouds, virtualization platforms, or physical servers.

Join this session to learn how:

- Containers can help evolve your infrastructure with public or private clouds, virtualization platforms, or physical servers.

- Containers can help you accelerate development and deployment processes and adopt DevOps, while supporting new and existing application architectures.

- How Red Hat OpenShift, with an enterprise Kubernetes platform, can support you as you evolve your applications, infrastructure, and process.

How to use Cloudforms to effectively manage hybrid Cloud: Demo.

With the ever increasing demand to move workloads into cloud, Hybrid Cloud is most desired as this helps in preventing vendor lock-in and gives greater flexibility.
Red Hat CloudForms is a cloud management platform that provides unified cloud management of private and public cloud resources, including those using AWS. This session will show you how to use CloudForms to effectively manage your hybrid cloud infrastructure from single pane of glass view.

Persistent storage for Openshift

No matter where an application is running, it will most likely need some form of storage. When running application in container environment, persistent storage is needed. There are plenty of storage plugins available which can provide persistent storage for application containers. With plenty of persistent storage available, it becomes evident to understand the different persistent storage options, their access modes  and how it works so that applications can make better use of persistent storage. Join us and be able to choose right persistent for your applications. We will take you through : what all various persistent storage options and access method we have, how access mode suites your workload.
