Sys Admins who Automate, have time to Innovate. Ansible for all

Wednesday 18th October 2017

Automation is everywhere. As businesses aim to become more efficient and increase predictability in their IT systems they are turning to automation. Ansible is disrupting the automation market with its easy to use, human-readable language and vast ecosystem of pre-built modules to enhance your automation journey. As your infrastructure architecture becomes more distributed, spanning multiple cloud providers and your on-premise data centre, automation will become the most critical component of your Cloud strategy. We will show you how Ansible can integrate with the major cloud providers as well as OpenStack. Ansible is expanding its automation reach from Linux and Windows server automation into the network automation space and Ansible has integrations with some major network hardware vendors such as F5 and Cisco out of the box.

Don’t get stuck spending 80% of your time managing what you currently have, instead use Ansible to free up more time to focus on the crucial 20%!

Whether you are using automation technologies or not, you should consider Ansible, due to its simplicity, ecosystem and the fact it is embedded into the Red Hat product suite. This tech talk will give you the information you need to kick start your automation revolution.

Are you a systems administrator junkie that needs automation?

SAP, Enterprise Linux, the future

Wednesday November 22, 2017

From 2025 SAP will only be supporting HANA as a database, HANA will only be supported on Linux. This year Red Hat is changing its SAP offerings making the consumption, support, management and insight of SAP deployments simpler than ever. We have designed this Tech Talk session to cover all you need to know about the impact, options, supported platforms, deployment options, capabilities etc of this change. Do you have a company cloud deployment model, are you planning to change your standard hardware options, will the virtulisation software you are using be the same in five years, if you are not using HANA now, will you be? While 2025 may sound like a long way off the potential impact to the business is far reaching, intrusive and costly. Join us to discover your options and let Red Hat assist you plan for the future.
