An IT infrastructure standardized on Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® delivers the operational efficiency benefits needed to cut costs in every stage of the deployment life cycle. Through a more predictable and interoperable environment, you’ll not only shrink operating expenses (OpEx), reduce downtime, and improve security and control, you’ll also enable business agility with self-service and automation.
In this webinar, we’ll explore processes, procedures, and tools to reduce costs and increase stability, including:
- Server builds and provisioning of bare metal, virtual, and cloud instances.
- Automating builds and configuration.
- Patch management and emergency patch implementation.
- Configuration management with Puppet, Red Hat Satellite 6, and the importance of a data repository.
- Virtual machine and container management, including instantiation and life cycle, self, and orchestration.
- A look ahead to the impact of OpenStack®, docker, and new storage paradigms.
