Need to build a private cloud to take advantage of flexible networking and storage and offer users self-service? If you’re already virtualized using VMware, you might think it’s a no-brainer to add VMware vCloud Suite to build a private cloud. But there’s more to this equation to consider.
In this session, we’ll provide a Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure demo and a comprehensive comparison of Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure and VMware vCloud Suite, including:
- Technical differentiation.
- Cost comparisons.
- Cloud management platform capabilities.
- Open source private cloud differentiators.
Attendees should have a basic knowledge of private cloud concepts.

In this session, you’ll learn how to initiate a REST API call to Inflobox to retrieve an IP address based upon the network name provided. We’ll also demonstrate the ability to collate performance metrics to automatically scale up your virtual infrastructure based on aggregate CPU usage.
In this session, you’ll hear about how Scholastic and Red Hat worked to tune Red Hat Storage Server for Apache running in the Amazon Web Service (AWS) public cloud. You’ll learn about:
- The Scholastic cloud storage architecture.
- The process followed to measure performance in AWS, identify bottlenecks, and tune Red Hat Storage Server and Apache to eliminate those bottlenecks, which resulted in performance that exceeded the original requirements.
- Future plans for Scholastic’s cloud storage environment.
Speakers from Scholastic, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Red Hat will also demo Scholastic’s live customer-facing infrastructure.
