Hyperscale computing: Challenges, opportunities, & emerging trends

Hyperscale computing promises to revolutionize the way the cloud is physically realized over the coming years. It combines enhancements at the software and hardware levels, like on-chip management and fabric infrastructure, and brings established industry titans together with upstart newcomers.

In this panel, thought leaders from the emerging hyperscale industry will share their thoughts and answer questions as they seek to address the challenges, opportunities, and emerging trends in hyperscale computing.

Customer applications of Hadoop on Red Hat Storage Server

If analyzing data were easy, wouldn’t everybody do it? The fact is, several steps are necessary to effectively use Hadoop out of the box to process data for the information you need. From preprocessing relevant data to preparing it for consumption to copying large data sets to another location for analysis—the time it takes to get value from your data might be so long that the data is no longer relevant.

So why bring your data to the analytics engine when you can bring the analytics engine to your data? In this session, you’ll learn how Red Hat customers use Red Hat Storage Server to more quickly start mining their data by allowing the application that generates the data they need to write directly to where the analytics will run. And in the process of doing so, they can skip making an extra copy of the data.

Hibernate OGM: Talking to NoSQL in Red Hat JBoss EAP

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:

  • How Hibernate OGM maps common JPA constructs to key-value, document, and graph datastores.
  • How to work with JPA on top of datastores such as Infinispan, MongoDB. and Neo4j and switch between them as a matter of configuration.
  • How to query for data using JP-QL and native queries.
  • How to use Hibernate OGM to access MongoDB on Red Hat’s PaaS, OpenShift by Red Hat.

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.

Mobile push in the enterprise

Interaction is important to a successful mobile application. Push notifications, a key feature of every mobile operating system, allow you to quickly reach your mobile users. In this session, we’ll discuss why implementing push notifications for several mobile platforms—each with its own proprietary API—can be easier than you might think possible.

The AeroGear UnifiedPush Server is an open source solution that provides a unified API for mobile operating systems, like iOS, Android, and Firefox OS. Join us to learn how to integrate it into your business applications, hosted in the cloud or inside your own datacenter, to send personalized or generic push notifications to your users.

MEAP, schMEAP. Who’s got you covered in mobile?

As mobile continues to revolutionize client development, application platforms need to include mobile-specific technologies like push notifications, offline support, and data synchronization. But the idea that you need completely new technologies such as a mobile enterprise application platform (MEAP) is misguided. Developers need to update existing platforms to include capabilities, tools, and techniques to meet the mobile challenge.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Explore some of the latest trends in mobile development for the enterprise.
  • Learn about the capabilities Red Hat has developed to help you go mobile quickly and sensibly.
  • Hear the latest about our cloud-based push server, data encryption, and tooling that make it easier for you to choose from mobile, web, native, and hybrid development.

We’ll discuss the Red Hat projects and technologies that make this possible, including AeroGear, Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio, and OpenShift by Red Hat. And you’ll hear how our plans for mobile in 2014 will help you mobilize your modern middleware.
