Josh Bressers, security strategist for Red Hat, laid down the law for the current state and future of security at Red Hat in today’s roadmap session. When talking roadmaps, nothing is definite–Josh stressed that on several occasions and offered some guidance on when we might see some of these advancements. Still, nothing is certain until it’s certain.

Security is big. Really big. Especially within the past year, we’ve seen lots of security issues and vulnerabilities exposed, freaked out over, and resolved. It’s on everyone’s mind and the answer to all of this isn’t a silver bullet. Security is not a single solution, but everything in your infrastructure working together–along with your users. If you don’t use it securely, it doesn’t matter how secure it is at the bottom.
For the first time, IBM is making its IBM Watson technology available as a development platform in the cloud. Watson Developers Cloud will enable a worldwide community of software application providers to build a new generation of apps infused with Watson’s cognitive computing intelligence. This will spur innovation and fuel a new ecosystem of entrepreneurial software application providers–ranging from start-up companies to established enterprises.
Together with IBM, these business partners share a vision for creating a new class of cognitive applications that transform how businesses and consumers make decisions. In this session, you’ll learn more about this game-changing initiative and you’ll see a live demonstration of the Watson API in action.
Join the 2014 Red Hat Innovation Award finalists to learn how they use Red Hat solutions to stay ahead of the evolving IT curve. With 5 industries represented, you’ll hear about about various technology challenges and solutions. Learn how each of the winning organizations teamed with Red Hat to modernize and scale their infrastructures while saving costs.
In this session, we’ll explore modernizing legacy architecture and applications to provide a flexible foundation for future needs, including highly integrated cloud-based applications, services, and data. You’ll learn about:
Cost-effective IT architecture and application renewal and reduced implementation risk.
Solutions, such as OpenShift by Red Hat, that break down IT productivity barriers.
Rapid SOA deployment on Red Hat JBoss Middleware (8 weeks vs. 12 months).
Enhanced interoperability and flexibility in heterogeneous environments.
Specifically targeted to the the health and public service sectors, this session will include proven examples of cloud migrations from those industries.
Do you see OpenStack as a strategic part of your private cloud strategy, but face the usual hurdles of using open source software in an enterprise environment? Learn how the Dell IT Emerging Technologies team partnered with Red Hat to face these challenges using OpenStack to create a private cloud-based lab for rapid technology incubation and experimentation.
Hyperscale computing seeks to replace a whole conventional server system with a single-chip solution that includes on-chip network fabric connectivity. This emerging design will provide hundreds of gigabits of connectivity between individual nodes, and make million-node deployments commonplace.
Red Hat has been researching hyperscale computing, including both conventional x86 designs and emerging 64-bit ARM-powered systems, for several years. In this session, you’ll get an update on the state of hyperscale computing, including a live demo using Red Hat technologies.
