Modern infrastructure for your hybrid cloud

This year at Open Infrastructure Summit, Red Hat’s team of subject matter experts will  be on-site and ready to talk about our product portfolio and contributions to various projects within various breakout sessions, hands on labs, featured demos, and videos.


Topics in our speaking & hands on lab sessions will range from Artificial Intelligence, Kubernetes, edge computing, storage, NFV, and of course - OpenStack including the latest innovations to Red Hat’s OpenStack Platform.

Our featured booth demos will include topics including:

  • Red Hat OpenShift on OpenStack Platform
  • Infrastructure Migration Solution
  • Virtual Central Office


Face recognition in 5 minutes with OpenStack

Have you ever taken a group photo and wondered who the people were in the picture? Now, thanks to OpenStack and TensorFlow—the open source machine learning framework—you don’t have to wonder anymore!

In this session, we’ll demonstrate how a facial recognition program together with graphics processing units (GPUs) can maximize the speed and accuracy of face recognition, as well as how to tune the frame decoding and inference time. We’ll also show application developers how to set up face detection networks quickly and choose the correct neural network design option while helping Operators learn how to provide resources such as GPUs and virtual GPUs.

Extending Kubernetes with the Operator Framework

Wednesday, May 1, 1:40–2:20pm

Ryan Jarvinen, developer advocate, Red Hat
Josh Wood, developer advocate, Red Hat

Kubernetes scales and manages stateless applications quite easily—but handling complex, stateful workloads can often be a challenge. Databases, distributed caches, and file storage systems frequently include their own notions about clustering, which can turn dynamic management into a complicated and difficult exercise. Operators are Kubernetes agents that fulfill many common SRE tasks, such as how to deploy, scale, manage, backup, and even upgrade complex, stateful workloads.

This tutorial will provide an update on the Operator pattern, and a series of follow-along usage examples which demonstrate how to install and interact with these advanced, Kubernetes-aware solutions.

With an understanding of Operators in place, the session will go on to detail the Operator Framework and its main components—the Operator SDK and the lifecycle management backplane.

Learn how to extend Kubernetes to support your own custom workload management strategies and tactics using the Operator Framework.

Lunch & Learn: Using Red Hat Ansible Automation for simple Red Hat OpenStack Platform

 Limited space. RSVP required. RSVP here.

Maintaining cloud infrastructure is challenging and requires mobilization and coordination of a huge collection of resources. To manage Red Hat® OpenStack®Platform properly, you need to manage not just the individual services, but also the interactions and relationships between them. Because of this complexity, more and more companies are turning to Ansible Automation to simplify their deployment and management of Red Hat OpenStack Platform. Ansible Automation is one of the leading tools for promoting continuous integration and these two technologies complement each other nicely.

Join Red Hat Training solutions architect, John Walter, as he demonstrates how to stand up Red Hat OpenStack Platform and deploy virtual machines using Ansible Playbooks. The session is targeted at cloud operators and cloud administrators interested in automating their Red Hat OpenStack Platform deployment.

In this session, John will explain the benefits of deploying and managing Red Hat OpenStack Platform with Ansible Playbooks. He will also review how the same simple and powerful features of Ansible Automation used for deploying and managing Red Hat OpenStack Platform can be used to provision, configure, and deploy the applications and services that live on top of the cloud.


Connect with Red Hat onsite at Open Infrastructure Summit in Denver

Red Hat associates will present or co-present at more than 50 breakout sessions, sponsored track sessions, lunch and learns, workshops, and panel discussions. Just about every OpenStack topic, from various services to NFV solutions to day-2 management to containers integration will be covered.

Not able to make it to Denver or these sessions? Don’t worry, the sessions will be recorded and available on-demand (coming soon).


Stay up to date on the latest Red Hat technologies.
