Red Hat Enterprise Linux on Amazon EC2 with Amazon Virtual Private Cloud

In this 2-hour lab, you’ll:

  • Use an Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) to launch secure, private instances of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.
  • Use the AWS Web Console to create a key pair, security groups, and launch instances with user data.
  • Review VPC connectivity options including hardware and software VPN, bastion hosts, and NAT.
  • Launch and configure a bastion host and use that host to securely connect to private Amazon EC2 instances.

You’ll leave this lab with an understanding of the Amazon VPC security model, including subnets and routes, security groups, user data, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux on Amazon EC2, and a $25 AWS credit.

Getting started with Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform

In this lab, you’ll get hands-on experience with Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 4. We’ll guide you through the typical use cases and common interactions with the platform, including instance, network, and volume creation and administrative tasks.

The lab requires no previous experience with OpenStack and is intended to be an introductory session with direct access to a pre-configured environment.

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..

Installing & administering Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.3

This lab will cover the installation and administration of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.3. You’ll

  1.  Install Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager 3.3.
  2.  Install and configure Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor.
  3.  Deploy one or more virtual machines using the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager WebUI.
  4.  Manage deployed virtual machines using the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager WebUI.
  5.  Manage virtual networks using the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager WebUI.
  6.  Manage storage domains using the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager WebUI and more.


Implementing storage with OpenStack

In this lab, we’ll investigate the configuration of Red Hat Storage Server, based on GlusterFS technology, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. You’ll learn how to integrate Red Hat Storage Server with the Glance, Cinder, and Nova services to provide the image, volume, and ephemeral storage infrastructure common to every OpenStack implementation. As a bonus exercise, we’ll implement the object store built into Red Hat Storage Server via the Gluster-4-Swift components to provide Swift API cloud storage to our OpenStack environment.

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.
