Red Hat at AWS re:Invent 2021

Visit us at booth 955

Modern IT is hybrid IT. Your enterprise has infrastructure, platforms, apps, and tools from different vendors. Proprietary tools don’t talk to each other. And apps cross clouds slowly, weighed down by data. You need advancements in infrastructure, management, and development that bring your clouds together.

Connect with us to learn how together, Red Hat® and Amazon Web Services (AWS) give you the tools and technologies to adapt to market demands. Scale infrastructure and expand opportunities in line with your organization’s needs and business goals.

Title: Build & deploy applications faster with Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS

Speaker: Noelle Silver, Managed OpenShift Sales Specialist, Red Hat

Abstract: Red Hat Openshift Service on AWS (ROSA) is a fully-managed application platform that allows you to focus on what matters most, delivering value to your customers by building and deploying applications, from legacy app modernization, to cutting edge cloud native application development. Red Hat and AWS manage the ROSA platform so you don’t have to worry about the complexity of infrastructure management. ROSA provides seamless integration with a wide range of AWS compute, database, analytics, machine learning, networking, mobile, and other services to further accelerate the building and delivering of differentiating experiences to your customers.  

In this session, we’ll discuss and show the ease of replatforming applications and cloud native app dev by integrating ROSA & other AWS services. We’ll also hear how one organization used ROSA and other AWS services to further accelerate their innovation and modernization efforts.

Title: Modernizing SAP in the AWS Cloud: The Secret to Avoiding the Startling Cost of Downtime

Speaker: Jim O'Donnell, Speaker Solutions Architect, SAP Alliance, Red Hat 

Abstract: Businesses depend on their critical business systems for their current survival and future growth. One unplanned outage not only leads to significant financial loss, but also risks the trust and confidence of customers and employees. And all too often, this outcome results in closed accounts, lost sales, and talent turnover.  Long-time SAP partners, such as Red Hat, understand the value of setting a foundation of great design, speed, and high availability when helping SAP customers keep up with the pace of technology innovation. Join us for deeper insight into how Red Hat is helping businesses bring on-premise SAP workloads to the AWS cloud while minimizing the risk of downtime.

Jam Lounge

Come to the Jam Lounge and get hands-on with Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS with a fun challenge! More about the challenge and what to expect: 



Your small digital floral startup company just landed a desirable contract that will triple your revenue over the next year. Your current application is running on a small 2 worker node OpenShift (OKD) cluster running in your basement. You chose to use OpenShift because it allows you to focus on the code and your core application. The administrative parts of the cluster are included as well as the extra services to manage it and you would like to continue using it. You have realized that in order to deliver on this contract, your usage will grow to a point where it is way beyond your current means to handle. You have analyzed your options to enable this explosive growth and hiring the Kubernetes experts to handle this in such a short amount of time would add immense stress and eat up much of that newly acquired revenue (plus, such experts have balked at the idea of working in your basement with you). Therefore you have decided on exploring the Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS to handle this growth and for hosting your application as it provides you a way to continue to focus on your application, allows you to pay for the consumption used while your new customer on-boards, and that Red Hat and AWS take on all the work of managing and maintaining the cluster.
