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.

'An Introduction to Containers' - What are they, what do they provide, how will my world change?

Wednesday December 13, 2017

There are few things that have struck such resonance with the IT sector in such a short space of time as Containers. Is it timing? Is it down to the way people can see it transforms the way companies ultimately do business from a point of view of time to market, consistency, opening the cloud, making departments more agile or cost savings? Is it because it embraces newer software best practices such as microservices? Or all of the above. People easily see the benefits of Containers. They are a practical solution to many of their current problems. They bring about better IT practices than they are currently able to enforce, they naturally encourage DevOps and provide better economies for hardware utilisation and software costs. For this TechTalk we are going to assume you have heard about Containers but do not necessarily have full details. We will cover comparisons to existing technologies, security, standards, management, run-time and everything needed to turn a container project into a reality.
