During this day you will be updated on how you can leverage on this success by listening to other customers -  large, medium and small  - who all have brought in these products as part of a solution for their business - cases like:

  • Ceph as a backend for Openstack (MultiPB)
  • Ceph as a backend for Medical Data
  • Gluster as a backup target
  • Ceph as backup target via S3
  • Ceph as a backend for VMware ESX
  • Gluster as an integrated solution for persistent storage for Openshift
  • Gluster as a part of a true Opensource Hyperconverged solution

During this day you will:

  • Hear interviews with people with insight of these and other solutions will bring you valuable information on what to do and what not to do. 
  • Hear from hardware partners how they invest in these solutions and how you can tap into a wast amount of knowledge by cooperating with them and Red Hat. 
  • Meet Red Hat Cloud and Container experts who can discuss with you why and how Red Hat storage should be a part of your solutions in these areas.
