In this 2-hour session, you’ll learn about the plans for current and upcoming releases of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, including 6.5 and 7, from the product engineering team. The team will highlight a variety of technology areas, including:
- File system.
- Hardware enablement.
- Developer tools.
- Core utilities.
Also, you’ll receive Red Hat Summit session recommendations, links, and reference materials to help you dive even deeper into selected technologies throughout Summit. Attend this session to get better focused on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux topics that matter most to you.
Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) is a powerful tool for securing Linux servers, but its reputation for being difficult to configure leads many system administrators to simply turn it off. The good news is that an incredible amount of work in recent years by the SELinux community has made it much more user-friendly.
In this session, you’ll learn the basics of SELinux, including configuring, analyzing, and correcting SELinux errors, as well as writing basic policies to allow non-SELinux-aware applications to work on SELinux-protected systems. Real-world examples will be used to demonstrate how to use SELinux.
Getting the best performance out of your enterprise applications can be a challenging and complicated task. After attending this session, you’ll be able to give your applications better response times, better scalability, and lower CPU and memory usage. You’ll learn about the performance improvements we’ve made in the last 3 versions of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, and about what’s coming in JBoss EAP 6.3. You’ll also learn what to look for when profiling your application.
Get the big picture of how our technologies weave together to form the foundation of open hybrid cloud computing. This is a great way to start your Summit week, providing context and referrals to other deep-dive sessions.
Red Hat’s engineering development managers will highlight this year’s cloud roadmap. They’ll start with an overview of the key integration and deployment scenario themes and will follow that with a series of 15-minute segments, which will offer a product-by-product overview of major features and themes. Topics include:
- Provisioning virtual images in Red Hat Satellite and how the images feed into Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and OpenStack.
- Advancements in software-defined storage and networking, major new datacenter management capabilities, and application deployment capabilities with OpenStack.
- High availability, performance optimizations, and OpenStack integration with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.
- Heterogeneous policy capabilities aimed at controlling and flexibly adapting to changing runtime needs with Red Hat CloudForms.
- The integration work our security and identity teams implemented across cloud offerings, with the goal of consistent and strong policy enforcement.
This inaugural session is the cloud analog to the highly acclaimed “Red Hat Enterprise Linux roadmap” session.
