Management and automation technologies have always been instrumental to enterprise IT governance, however their importance grows as organizations grapple with increasing scale and complexity. Traditional solutions can often be unable to adapt to the needs of these rapidly changing hybrid cloud environments and organizations can acquire new tools to help address these challenges. Cloud-ready, agentless management and automation solutions can help standardize processes, accelerate IT service delivery, and more effectively manage infrastructure for compliance with policy-driven IT.
With a little over a week to go until Red Hat Summit 2019, schedule building is in full swing and the IT Automation and Management track will feature dozens of breakout sessions and labs that explore how automation and management tools and processes are changing how people work and how companies can scale and grow. If you’re looking to attend sessions focusing on innovation in automation and management, here are a few to consider for your agenda:
Red Hat automation and management portfolio integrations and roadmap
Learn about Red Hat products for automation, management, and integration: Red Hat Ansible Automation products, which include Red Hat Ansible Tower, Red Hat Ansible Engine, and Red Hat Ansible Network Automation; Red Hat Satellite; Red Hat CloudForms; and Red Hat Insights. We'll also talk about new offerings for multicloud and hybrid-cloud management that can help you more efficiently integrate and manage your hybrid cloud and local infrastructure.
Managing Red Hat Enterprise Linux in a cloud-based world
In this session, we'll Introduce a new way to manage your Red Hat Enterprise Linux instances on-premise and across a multicloud environment. We'll showcase our latest solutions designed to address key IT challenges across security, subscription management, and analytics. This session will include demonstrations.
Analog transformation: Scaling network automation culture with Ansible Tower at Microsoft
Automating networks is a critical component of our evolving need to be connected to the world, but it’s not about the tools alone. In this session, you'll learn how Microsoft's journey of network automation with Red Hat Ansible Tower sparked a change in culture to transform the way they design, build, and deploy IT networks at scale today and for the future.
Hybrid cloud management strategies and best practices
Many enterprise organizations recognize the business value of hybrid cloud strategies spanning bare metal, virtual machines, and containers deployed across on-premise and public cloud infrastructure. A hybrid infrastructure can help provide end users and developers with cost-effective, on-demand IT resources that are optimized for applications, regulatory requirements, and performance priorities. In this session, we'll discuss management requirements needed to optimize large-scale hybrid cloud operations and application performance. We'll share how Red Hat’s hybrid cloud management strategy is evolving to help address customer needs with a goal of unifying the operator, developer, and end user experience across a range of public and private cloud platforms.
DevOps for hybrid cloud: Automation, security, and IT operations at scale
When development (dev) and operations (ops) get together, good things can happen for the business. Often associated with containers, microservices, and public clouds, DevOps is first and foremost a cultural transformation focused on collaboration facilitated by automation.
DevOps methodologies help developers and IT operations teams break down silos by aligning on standard configurations, security profiles, SLAs, and self-service provisioning policies. In this session you'll learn how to simplify and automate DevOps security and operations at scale using Red Hat Ansible Automation with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.
