In this session, members of the product management team will:
- Provide a high-level overview of upcoming Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization features, including integration with OpenStack services that allowing end users to configure a consistent set of services across their private clouds and datacenter virtualization infrastructures.
- Discuss the key features of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.
- Provide a live demo of the latest product features and capabilities.
- Answer your questions and take your feedback as we shape the future direction of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.
Businesses today are placing more of their infrastructure systems in virtualized environments to increase security. But the results of catastrophic events can still prove devastating in virtualized environments if you can’t quickly quickly bring up a second environment to reduce the negative impact to your daily operations.
In this session, we’ll provide an overview of site-level disaster recovery of a Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization environment. We’ll also discuss new features in Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.3, including the REST API, that make a site-level disaster recovery possible and easy to perform. The discussion will include:
- An overview of the failover process.
- The methods available to create a failover.
- The Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.3 REST API.
- Automating the failover process.
After this session, attendees will have a better understanding of the new disaster recovery capabilities included with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.
Physical and virtual datacenter management is complex and time consuming. Countless management tools offer only a partial view of available data; and shifting from 1 tool to another to integrate and process crucial information takes precious time and money.
HP Insight Control for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (IC4RHEV) is a user interface plug-in that allows you to seamlessly manage your physical and virtual infrastructures within a single tool, the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager. This plug-in, which simplifies datacenter management, is ideal for HP customers that have standardized on the Red Hat ecosystem.
In this session, you’ll learn how IC4RHEV works, and how to save time and money with the benefits of multi-tool integration.
A software collection is a suite of multiple software stacks, or collections, that include newer versions of the software that developers know and love. This lets operations teams deliver these on top of the trusted Red Hat Enterprise Linux platform without sacrificing infrastructure stability by relying on unsupported solutions.
In this session, you’ll learn how:
- To use Red Hat Software Collections in a number of real-world use cases.
- OpenShift by Red Hat uses software collections to deliver up-to-date development and deployment environments.
- To package software built against Red Hat Software Collections for distribution within a user’s environment via custom repositories (or channels) using Red Hat Satellite.
Red Hat Storage Server is an open, software-defined storage product for private, public, and hybrid cloud environments, based on the open source GlusterFS project, a distributed scale-out file system technology.
In this session, you’ll:
- Hear about the near- and medium-term Red Hat Storage Server roadmap.
- Get deep insight into its integration roadmap with Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform and its feature roadmap for running big data analytics workloads.
- Have an opportunity to share your perspectives with senior business and technical leaders from the Red Hat Storage team to help shape the future of Red Hat Storage Server.
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:
- How to configure and use snapshots in Red Hat Storage Server.
- How to do point-in-time recovery using snapshots.
- The architectural overview of snapshots in Red Hat Storage Server.
- The key features and offerings in Red Hat Storage Server snapshots.
- Best practice recommendations for configuring Red Hat Storage Server volumes for optimal use with snapshots.
- The limitations in the snapshots feature release.
- Some important issues to consider when migrating from older Red Hat Storage Server releases to a snapshot-supported one.
- The product roadmap and extensions to snapshots.
The Red Hat subscription provides value to your IT departments. Depending on how your company purchases, your IT department might have many different subscriptions with different end dates and SLAs. Your department might not know what machines are covered by which SLA or how many subscriptions are still available.
To solve these issues, we include the Subscription Asset Manager (SAM) tool with your Red Hat subscription. You can use it to track your system inventory and your subscription usage across bare-metal machines and cloud deployments. The new enhanced reporting feature gives you historical views of your data. It integrates with Red Hat Satellite 5.6 to provide a report of historical subscription consumption across both SAM and Red Hat Satellite 5.6.
This session will combine concept overview—including an overview of differences between Red Hat Satellite 5.6 and SAM—and a live demo of SAM and its integration with Red Hat Satellite 5.6. We’ll focus on new features, like enhanced reporting, and how you can apply them to solve real datacenter issues. You’ll also learn about the SAM roadmap to understand what future releases will look like.
