Building enterprise clouds: Resetting expectations to get them right

In this session, we’ll describe the top challenges enterprise, end-user organizations encounter in building private clouds, the shortcomings of the cloud management market offering, and the recommended steps to mitigate those challenges. You’ll learn about:

  • The mistakes organizations make in planning their private clouds.
  • How organizations should rethink their approaches to private cloud computing.
  • How Red Hat can help make a private cloud a viable project.

Red Hat Satellite roadmap & demo

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.

Mobile & Rich Client smack-down

In this 3rd annual BoF, experts from Red Hat, W3C, and the community will demonstrate why their technologies are the present and future of mobile and rich client applications. You’ll learn about trends in client technology frameworks, security, off-line support, data synchronization, and why each technology may be the best choice for your project.

We’ll have HTML5 (+ various JS libraries), JSF/RichFaces, GWT/Errai, as well as mobile-specific options such as Cordova, iOS, Android, FirefoxOS, and more. You’ll also have an opportunity to discuss and ask questions about your own choices.

OpenShift roadmap & the evolution of PaaS

Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) is changing how IT thinks about application development and deployment. OpenShift is in the middle of this transformation, offering an open source, online, and on-premise PaaS.

In this session, you’ll hear a brief history of OpenShift, what we’re focusing on today, and where we’re going. You’ll learn about integration with OpenStack and the newer OpenShift Online commercial additions to help you decide where PaaS best fits in your company.

Cloud technical roadmap

Get the big picture of how our technologies weave together to form the foundation of open hybrid cloud computing. This is a great way to start your Summit week, providing context and referrals to other deep-dive sessions.

Red Hat’s engineering development managers will highlight this year’s cloud roadmap. They’ll start with an overview of the key integration and deployment scenario themes and will follow that with a series of 15-minute segments, which will offer a product-by-product overview of major features and themes. Topics include:

  • Provisioning virtual images in Red Hat Satellite and how the images feed into Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and OpenStack.
  • Advancements in software-defined storage and networking, major new datacenter management capabilities, and application deployment capabilities with OpenStack.
  • High availability, performance optimizations, and OpenStack integration with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.
  • Heterogeneous policy capabilities aimed at controlling and flexibly adapting to changing runtime needs with Red Hat CloudForms.
  • The integration work our security and identity teams implemented across cloud offerings, with the goal of consistent and strong policy enforcement.

This inaugural session is the cloud analog to the highly acclaimed “Red Hat Enterprise Linux roadmap” session.
