In today’s global economy, end users and customers are demanding 24×7 access to their applications. Organizations around the world are looking for ways to provide resources and services with minimal downtime—scheduled or unscheduled. Dynamic kernel updates in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 beta is a new way to achieve such highly available services by providing kernel patching while the system is running.
In this session, you’ll learn about new capabilities planned for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, and best practices around system configuration to enhance reliability, availability, and serviceability. Topics will include:
- Dynamic kernel updates and system monitoring, including logs, smartd, and mcelog.
- abrt, including new integration with Red Hat Satellite.
- Multipathing and nic bonding.
- Optimizing your interaction with Red Hat GSS.
You’ll leave this session with a better understanding of how to maximize uptime, avoid common outages, and drive root cause analysis in an efficient manner.
What is the viability of Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) addressing the business drivers of increased agility, flexibility, and time to market for application development? How does OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat measure up?
In this session, you’ll:
- Learn the business drivers from IT and other departments for deploying private PaaS.
- Learn the approach taken for proof of concept and production deployments.
- See real-world examples of applications running on OpenShift Enterprise.
- Hear about lessons learned throughout the process.
- Get an overview of the architecture and IT operating model examples and considerations for implementing OpenShift Enterprise as a new service.
In this session for administrators of all skill levels, you’ll get a deep technical dive into Red Hat Storage Server and GlusterFS administration.
We’ll start with the basics of what scale-out storage is, and learn about the unique implementation of Red Hat Storage Server and its advantages over legacy and competing technologies. From the basic knowledge and design principles, we’ll move to a live start-to-finish demonstration. Your experience will include:
- Building a cluster.
- Allocating resources.
- Creating and modifying volumes of different types.
- Accessing data via multiple client protocols.
- A resiliency demonstration.
- Expanding and contracting volumes.
- Implementing directory quotas.
- Recovering from and preventing split-brain.
- Asynchronous parallel geo-replication.
- Behind-the-curtain views of configuration files and logs.
- Extended attributes used by GlusterFS.
- Performance tuning basics.
- New and upcoming feature demonstrations.
Those new to the scale-out product will leave this session with the knowledge and confidence to set up their first Red Hat Storage Server environment. Experienced administrators will sharpen their skills and gain insights into the newest features. IT executives and managers will gain a valuable overview to help fuel the drive for next-generation infrastructures.
Red Hat Satellite was introduced in 2002 as a means to patch and provision systems and build standard operating environments. While these are still primary focuses of Red Hat Satellite today, the requirements for system management are evolving and growing increasingly complex. In this session, you’ll:
- Get a detailed walk-through of the completely redesigned user interface, including technical insight into version 6 innovations in content management, content publishing, promotion across environments, mirroring across federated points of presence, provisioning, and configuration.
- Learn about Red Hat Satellite 6 content views as critical constructs for enforcing strong governance in defining standard system builds, while organizing Puppet content for building layered application stacks.
- See a demo of system management tasks to reinforce Red Hat Satellite 6 functions around automation, orchestration, observability, and reusability.
- Hear an introduction to our beta program.
- Get a Red Hat Satellite 6 product roadmap.
