Title: A fireside chat with Linux experts: Trends, challenges and paradigm shift

Abstract: The journey moving all business-critical apps to the cloud might be daunting, and you might have lots of questions about how to strategize your cloud adoption when migrating your large-scale business apps onto the cloud? How to keep the lights on while innovating at the same time? What to expect and plan for so you have a smoother journey to the cloud?

Jump in with the leaders from Red Hat, SUSE, Elastic, HashiCorp and Cloudera to learn about the latest technical innovation, the paradigm shift to run applications in hybrid deployment models, and the benefits of the collaboration between Microsoft and the top Linux partners.

Title: Deploy containerized applications faster and more reliably with Azure Red Hat OpenShift

Abstract: Kubernetes is challenging for developers and operators alike. You need a container platform that lets you keep up with application scale and complexity requirements, allows your developers to quickly deploy apps on Kubernetes and help your entire DevOps team stay productive. Can you get these results without needing to learn (and maintain) Kubernetes? Absolutely. 

Azure Red Hat OpenShift is a fully managed service built on top of Kubernetes and includes everything developers need to more easily manage and deploy their container platform including standardized workflows, support for multiple environments, continuous integration, release management, automated maintenance and upgrades, integrated platform monitoring, and a support experience directly from the Azure support portal.

In this session, we will give you a "hands-on" experience of Azure Red Hat OpenShift including creating projects, building containers from code, and running them on a jointly engineered and supported service by Microsoft and Red Hat.

Title: Which as-a-Service is Right for your ​Java Apps?​

Abstract: A detailed discussion on selection of IaaS, PaaS and KaaS for Java application hosting in Azure. The topics will include discussions on lift and shift vs new modern application development and cloud strategy considerations. COVID-19 has also changed the landscape and why the cloud is more important than ever. Making the right choice is more critical than ever. In this session, we'll discuss some common cloud migration strategies and best practices along with a demo of JBoss EAP on VMs, App Service on Linux and Azure Red Hat OpenShift (ARO).


Azure Red Hat OpenShift provides a flexible, self-service deployment of fully managed OpenShift clusters. Maintain regulatory compliance and focus on your application development, while your master, infrastructure, and application nodes are patched, updated, and monitored by both Microsoft and Red Hat. Choose your own registry, networking, storage, or CI/CD solutions. Or get going immediately using built-in solutions with automated source code management, container and application builds, deployments, scaling, health management, and more.

Microsoft Corporation develops, manufactures, and supports software, consumer electronics and computers, and related services. To simplify and scale at pace with market demands, Microsoft worked with Red Hat to create a scalable, technology-agnostic automation framework to reduce manual workloads with efficient tools and processes, and mitigate performance and security issues with standardized, tested code. As a result, Microsoft has standardized network automation at scale, established a collaborative and creative development mindset, and saved thousands of hours of operational work.
