Hybrid, Multicloud by Design. Accelerating the Enterprise Cloud Journey

Moscone North | Think Theater

Cloud is integral to virtually every enterprise digital transformation strategy. Yet less than 20% of workloads have moved to the cloud. Why? Put simply, complexity. Enterprises are struggling to modernize apps and workloads, and overcome persistent tech and data silos reinforced by vendor lock in. Speakers Arvind Krishna, SVP Hybrid Cloud and Director of Research at IBM, Paul Cormier, EVP and president, products, and technologies at Red Hat, and others, will discuss how agile enterprises can accommodate changing business requirements at speed. The right cloud foundation built on open standards frees workloads and data to run on the right cloud model, on or off premises, and across multiple clouds. It embraces tech and data from more sources to speed innovation. And when combined with unique industry, security and tech expertise, it can tailor the journey to cloud to your enterprise for better outcomes.

1:30 - 2:15 p.m.

Why Run Red Hat Workloads on IBM Cloud?

San Francisco Ballroom 207

It's increasingly important for enterprises to develop a sound hybrid cloud strategy for digital transformation. Some workloads are suited for public cloud, but others need to remain on-premises or in other private cloud deployments. A key to this strategy is the portability of enterprise software subscriptions. Red Hat has partnered with IBM to allow our joint customers to utilize their existing Red Hat subscriptions into the IBM Cloud via Red Hat's Cloud Access, including RHEL, OpenShift, and much more. This allows our customers the ultimate flexibility in where they deploy their Red Hat solutions on-premises or on IBM Cloud, on virtual servers or bare metal. Learn how Red Hat workloads are suited to run on IBM Cloud.

9:30 - 10:10 a.m.

Taming Software-defined Storage with IBM Rapid Deploy for Red Hat Storage

InterContinental Grand Ballroom C

Software-Defined Storage (SDS) has become a proven foundation for a wide variety of workloads, offering significant cost savings and greater flexibility versus legacy systems. However, complicated architecture, complex setup, cycles of testing and tuning, and multiple support contracts have made it difficult for many organizations to deploy SDS at scale. What if you could leverage all of the knowledge and experience of the successful deployments of the past and simplify every step of your design and deployment, without sacrificing the cost efficiencies and flexibility of open source? IBM, Red Hat and Lenovo have partnered together to tackle these issues. In this session, experts from each organization will discuss the intricacies of traditional complicated SDS, and then wow you with the simplicity of IBM Rapid Deploy for Red Hat Storage.

Self-Paced Labs - Continuous Delivery with OpenShift Source-to-Image

Code Cafe at Tabletop Tap House

In this lab, you will create, build, and deploy an application on an OpenShift cluster. OpenShift’s simple web console makes it easy to configure “source-to-image” for continuous delivery and deployment of applications. With this feature, OpenShift automatically deploys applications by injecting application source from a Git repository into a container, along with the other necessary resources. Each commit to the repository kicks off another deployment, creating an ideal platform for continuous delivery.
