Red Hat provides a variety of options to deploy your solutions and applications across on-premise clouds, public clouds, and hybrid IT environments. These options include programs like Red Hat Cloud Access, which let you bring your enterprise subscriptions to public clouds, and public cloud on-demand consumption models.
In this session, Red Hat’s Jane Circle and Gordon Haff will discuss best practices for moving your workloads and Red Hat products to a public cloud and operating them there. Specific topics will include:
- Determining which workloads are suitable for running in a public cloud.
- Choosing the right consumption and pricing model.
- Which Red Hat products are available for public clouds.
- How to bring your own image into a public cloud.
- Your options for keeping your images updated.
- Ways to maintain portability of data and applications as you move to a public cloud.
- How and why to use a virtual private cloud (VPC).
- The benefits you gain by choosing a Red Hat Certified Cloud.
Choice matters. And OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat is the only Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) product that runs in the hosting environment of your choice.
While true PaaS products provide a level of infrastructure abstraction so developers can be more productive, choosing the right environment to host your PaaS product is critical. You must take many factors into consideration, like cost, availability, scalability, and manageability. Having a PaaS product that’s truly environment-agnostic can maximize your options and help you make the choice that best fits your needs.
Come see a demo of deploying OpenShift Enterprise to multiple public cloud providers and within local virtual machines. By using common provisioning tools and the various cloud vendor APIs, you’ll see the realization of open, hybrid PaaS. You’ll also learn about considerations when running OpenShift Enterprise in these different environments, and monitoring strategies for proactively maintaining the health of an OpenShift Enterprise environment.
Explore the major challenges experienced by organizations that have already deployed private clouds. Our goal is to help you understand where your private cloud challenges will be and how your choice in a cloud management platform can affect the short- and long-term operations of your cloud infrastructure. We’ll:
- Use market survey data to identify these challenges.
- Show you how Red Hat CloudForms addresses these challenges.
- Explore other key features needed to manage your private or hybrid cloud.
- Review roadmap features to give you a sense of where we plan to take Red Hat CloudForms in the future.
Join us to explore how you can build and operate your private or hybrid cloud for success.
You can use Red Hat CloudForms with Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure, VMware vSphere, or Amazon Web Services to flex workloads in real time based on performance or regulatory or business rules. You can also automate forecasting changes in your marketplace, datacenter, or governance using CloudForms so that workloads can be moved into the right cloud for the workload type.
Fancy using Google Trends to scale and flex your service. CloudForms can take advantage of external data to be reactive in your environment, scaling your service proactively as the service forecasts service trends. In this session, we’ll demonstrate use cases that can dynamically flex your public, private, or hybrid cloud workloads.
Running a large private Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) can be challenging. But understanding how the systems work—and how to make them work for you—can help your operations team work more effectively when compared to traditional environments and architecture.
Using experience gained from traditional Red Hat Enterprise Linux environments, automation and scripting become a natural progression to controlling an OpenShift Enterprise environment. In this session, you’ll get details about how to monitor and run an OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat installation.
Mike will discuss lessons learned from his experience with Red Hat Enterprise Linux and running OpenShift Online, a large public PaaS. You’ll learn about:
- Configuration management.
- Cartridge troubleshooting.
- Running OpenShift on OpenStack.
After this session, you should have a better understanding of how OpenShift architecture behaves in an on-premise environment. This includes:
- Common failure scenarios.
- What to do about troubleshooting.
- How to integrate with other Red Hat cloud technologies like OpenStack.
