You're browsing the 2014 Summit site. Check out what we're doing this year.
This track provides overview and deep dive sessions that cover the products, features, and technologies for datacenter modernization and consolidation. Example topics include: storage migration, performance optimization, management of data in distributed applications, and middleware integration. Attendees will learn how to enable lines of business to rapidly respond to business events in an automated manner, automate rules-driven business processes, and integrate applications, data, and embedded devices across all cloud environments.
The datacenters of today’s global businesses are often located in various sites around the world. To help ensure their safety, the data is frequently replicated both within and between sites. This cross-site replication can be challenging, as links between sites are often bandwidth-constrained and have high latency.
In this session, you’ll:
|Application and data integration||Tuesday, April 15||4:50 pm - 5:50 pm||3.0 / 5.0|
This track features the developers who write the code, the solution architects who work in the field, and the product managers who contribute to product direction. Example topics include: deployment techniques, performance optimization, and system management, and sessions will include technology overviews, roadmaps, and deep dives. Attendees will learn how to increase performance and scalability, implement security policies, meet service level agreements, and more effectively manage deployments.
The snapshots feature in Red Hat Storage Server provides an integrated solution for point-in-time recovery of GlusterFS volumes. Join us to check it out. And while you’ll be exposed to architectural details of how snapshots are implemented,this session won’t be a deep dive into snapshot internals.
In this session, you’ll learn:
|Application and platform infrastructure||Tuesday, April 15||1:20 pm - 2:20 pm||3.0 / 5.0|
In this session, we’ll detail Red Hat Storage Server data replication strategies for both near replication (LAN) and far replication (over WAN), and explain how replication has evolved over the last few years. You’ll learn about:
|Application and platform infrastructure||Wednesday, April 16||2:30 pm - 3:30 pm||4.0 / 5.0|
This track shows you how to implement and operate your private, public, or hybrid cloud. Example topics include: provisioning and flexing workloads, using Red Hat products in public clouds, and running an on-premise IaaS and PaaS. Attendees will learn best practices for making the most effective use of public clouds, architecting and managing on-premise and hybrid clouds, monitoring hybrid cloud environments, and provisioning applications across their infrastructures of choice.
This session will explore concepts to help design a large cloud infrastructure using Red Hat CloudForms and Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. You’ll learn how to horizontally scale OpenStack components and how to deploy a control tier that is both highly available and load balanced.
The session will provide general architecture design and concepts, but won’t get too deep into the technical details of the implementation. If you’ve considered building an OpenStack cluster, this session will provide many key concepts to help you make the decisions necessary for deployment.
Topics: Clustering, Flexibility, Interoperability, Open hybrid cloud, OpenStack, Performance, Projects, Red Hat Cloud, Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure, Red Hat CloudForms, Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, Reliability, Scalability
|Cloud deep dive||Tuesday, April 15||4:50 pm - 5:50 pm||3.0 / 5.0|
This track showcases community leaders and their innovative upstream work, as well as the certified commercial solutions that the Red Hat partner ecosystem brings to market. Attendees will also gain a better understanding of the value of a Red Hat subscription and learn how to extract the maximum value from their investments.
There are important configuration changes needed to make the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization environment disaster resilient, and this session describes those steps using Symantec Availability solutions.
In this session, you’ll learn about:
|Community and partner ecosystem||Wednesday, April 16||2:30 pm - 3:30 pm||4.0 / 5.0|
This track features sessions covering the trends and strategies driving the future of enterprise computing. Example topics include: big data, mobile, software-defined storage, and intelligent systems. Attendees will be among the first to know about what's coming from Red Hat and how to better plan for shifts in the IT landscape.
With new NoSQL stores arriving to the market frequently, choosing the right datastore can be a tough challenge. Each store provides its own low-level APIs, and migrating from one store to another is anything but simple.
Hibernate Object/Grid Mapper (OGM) provides easy access to NoSQL stores via the well-known Java Persistence API (JPA). Java developers who know how to use JPA also know how to access their favorite NoSQL stores.
In this session, you’ll learn:
This session is code-focused, with at least half the time spent coding and running tests in Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio. You’ll leave the session with a solid understanding of when to use (or not use) Hibernate OGM to handle everyday NoSQL challenges.
Topics: Big data, Clustering, Development tools, Flexibility, JBoss Community, OpenShift by Red Hat, Performance, Portability, Projects, Red Hat Cloud, Red Hat JBoss Data Grid, Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio, Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, Red Hat JBoss Middleware, Reliability, Scalability
|Emerging technologies||Thursday, April 17||11:00 am - 12:00 pm||4.0 / 5.0|
This track highlights the features and capabilities that position Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 as the platform for next-generation IT. Sessions will cover topics specific to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 beta, ranging from Linux containers, the OpenLMI framework, and cross-domain identity management to the powerful system and performance management tools. Attendees can use examples of real-world use cases and the experiences of beta participants to plan their own implementations.
High availability application clustering has changed significantly in Linux since the release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. In this session, you’ll learn about new clustering technologies in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 beta. Topics covered will include:
