Connect with Red Hat and Intel for an information-packed day focused on all things containers—current trends, key benefits, best practices, and how containers can help evolve your infrastructure.

Location: Gillette Stadium, 1 Patriots Place, Foxborough, MA 02035
Date: October 24, 2018
Time: 8:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.


  • Why traditional storage is sub-optimal for modern workloads
  • Best practices for deploying containers on premise
  • Top architecture, performance, and security concerns for managing containers in a hybrid or multicloud environment
  • Best practices for getting started with containers
  • Tips and tricks for successful container deployments
  • Applying updates, troubleshooting problems, and lessons learned


IT business leaders, architects, DevOps engineers, security professionals, infrastructure and operations professionals, and application developers who are focused on securing their organization’s infrastructure and applications. This conference is not a hands-on workshop, but many of the presentations and live demos are geared toward a technical audience.

Container experts and industry thought leaders will present on trends in container deployment, including:

  • Enterprise Kubernetes
  • Red Hat® OpenShift® Container Platform
  • Migrating container applications
  • Demonstration of a CI/CD setup within OpenShift Container Platform
  • Container-native storage
  • Istio for microservices
  • Container security


Red Hat and Intel offer a strategic approach to more easily build cloud-native applications, deploy them, and manage workloads across a hybrid cloud. Together, Red Hat and Intel fuel business speed—without compromising the performance of existing technology.
