Protecting your data with Red Hat Storage Server

Whether it’s the fear of data loss through system or datacenter failures or data theft by parties whose intentions are unknown, there is no shortage of things to keep you up at night. In this session, we’ll guide you through how Red Hat Storage Server can help you sleep better knowing your data is protected against multiple failure scenarios, including theft. You’ll learn how to use Red Hat Storage Server to encrypt and replicate your data locally as well as remotely, and how to access the data securely over SSL.

Getting started with Red Hat CloudForms and its service catalog

In this lab, we’ll start with the simple installation and configuration of Red Hat CloudForms. You’ll gain hands-on experience as you explore typical use cases for installing CloudForms into both new and existing environments. You’ll also set up a service catalog and work with provisioning workflow scenarios that vary from simple to advanced. Assistance will be provided throughout the lab by some of the most experienced Red Hat solution architects, consultants, and technical product managers who help our customers successfully create and manage their clouds.

This lab is also offered on Thursday from 9-11 a.m..

Deploying OpenShift Enterprise on Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform with Heat templates

Integration is one of the key aspects of creating a successful cloud environment, which Red Hat provides by building and using products within its portfolio that complement each other. In this hands-on lab, we’ll demonstrate a tightly integrated cloud solution that combines Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, and OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat.

You’ll learn how to properly deploy OpenShift Enterprise onto a Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform infrastructure using Heat templates. Through discussions and demonstrations, you’ll learn about:

  • Obtaining and deploying Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 4.
  • Setting up a Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 4 Heat infrastructure.
  • Customizing Heat templates for OpenShift Enterprise.
  • Deploying OpenShift Enterprise using the customized Heat templates.
  • Deploying applications to the new OpenShift Enterprise infrastructure to confirm functionality.

This session is for anyone interested in application orchestration, especially those system administrators responsible for IaaS and/or PaaS. You’ll leave this session with the knowledge required to create your own cloud applications.

Development & governance with Red Hat Fuse Service Works

Red Hat Fuse Service Works is Red Hat’s middleware solution for application integration, messaging, SOA, and service governance requirements. It combines multiple technologies from the middleware portfolio. Camel, CXF and ActiveMQ comprise the core ESB technology, SwitchYard provides the lightweight service development framework, and Overlord provides the design-time and run-time governance.

In this session, we’ll walk you through the Red Hat Fuse Service Works home-loan application. This application processes a home-loan application through the system to arrive at a decision. The application uses multiple technologies, including Camel, business processes, and rules.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Manage application life cycle through design-time governance
  • Capture service activity through run-time governance.
  • Build a SwitchYard application and use Camel, business processes, and rules in the application.

Getting started with Red Hat Storage Server

Today’s storage landscape includes only a few solutions that address the explosive need for growth as well as the demands for new access methods and methodologies. Red Hat Storage Server was built from the ground up as a software-defined storage solution to address the needs of the modern datacenter. In this lab, you’ll gain hands-on experience with deployment, configuration, and accessing data using Red Hat Storage Server.

Test-drive Red Hat Satellite 6

Red Hat Satellite 6 is a fresh approach to managing Linux systems. It offers new capabilities that span subscription, content, provisioning, configuration, automation, integration, and life-cycle operations.

In this hands-on lab, you’ll get an early look at the product. Lab presenters will walk you through a series of exercises focused on definition, deployment, and ongoing management of a LAMP Stack standard operating environment (SOE). This will involve a demonstration of the following Red Hat Satellite concepts:

  • Subscription manifests.
  • Content definition and synchronization (both RPM and Puppet modules).
  • Content views.
  • Environments and content promotions.
  • Host groups (including Puppet class associations).
  • Provisioning.
  • Host registration.
  • Remote management.

While this session will be fast-paced and moderately technical, no prior knowledge of Red Hat Satellite (or associated technologies) is required to attend. We’ll provide a comprehensive lab workbook.
