HP Moonshot with Red Hat Enterprise Linux saves space & energy for HP.com

The HP Moonshot System, the world’s first software-defined server platform, delivers maximum density with unparalleled power efficiency. HP Moonshot, running Red Hat Enterprise Linux, is currently handling the traffic on HP.com, and providing tremendous space and energy savings. In this session, we’ll explain the technical detail of how our web platform works and discuss future plans for more workloads.

UNIX-to-Linux modernization strategies: Eliminate major migration roadblocks

Legacy UNIX platforms are expensive. From hardware maintenance and software licensing to system administration and scalability, these proprietary platforms place an unnecessary burden on your IT budget. The UNIX variants that remain in your enterprise are likely entrenched for a reason and a commodity x86-based infrastructure using open source software doesn’t completely solve the problem.

In this session, you’ll learn how Dell and Red Hat can help eliminate your remaining migration roadblocks by providing the methodology and services to execute a migration of any size. You’ll leave this session with an end-to-end solutions approach that focuses on both application migration delivery and infrastructure modernization.

Red Hat Storage Server replication: Past, present, & future

In this session, we’ll detail Red Hat Storage Server data replication strategies for both near replication (LAN) and far replication (over WAN), and explain how replication has evolved over the last few years. You’ll learn about:

  • Past mechanisms.
  • Near replication (client-side replication).
  • Far replication using timestamps (xtime).
  • Present mechanisms.
  • Near replication (server side) built using qourum and journaling.
  • Faster far replication using journaling.
  • Unified replication.
  • Replication using snapshots.
  • Stripe replication using erasure coding.

Using Red Hat Storage Server with HP ultrascale solutions for big data

Struggling to cost-effectively manage growing amounts of data while extracting more value from them? Join us to learn how running Red Hat Storage Server on HP ProLiant SL4540 Gen8 servers offers massive scalability, high performance, and volume economics for storage of all kinds of unstructured data. In particular, you’ll learn about the 2-node ProLiant SL4540 Gen8 Server series, which offers scalable and cost-effective solutions for creating a large file and object store, deploying an enterprise drop box or cloud storage for service providers, and establishing a nearline archive.

Intelligent business management in the cloud

While cloud solutions claim to empower line-of-business (LOB) users to make successful IT decisions, most enterprises are simply optimizing IT infrastructures on new infrastructure platforms without giving any control to LOB users.

In this session, you’ll learn how a Business Rules Management System (BRMS) can be integrated with a cloud management platform to deliver new value to LOB users and their organizations. You’ll learn about several use cases that illustrate the value of combining business rules management with cloud management. Specifically, you’ll learn how to:

  • Respond to complex cloud infrastructure events according to defined business rules (that can be based on market conditions and/or regulatory policies).
  • Give cloud users and administrators the ability to define complex business workflows based on those cloud infrastructure events.
  • Allow cloud users to place cloud workloads based on granular, user-defined policies that span the infrastructure, hypervisor, storage, and application tiers.

The session will include a demonstration of an integrated BRMS and cloud management solution (Red Hat JBoss BRMS and Red Hat CloudForms) that delivers new control to LOB users as they embrace cloud infrastructure platforms like OpenStack.

Red Hat Storage Server for AWS

The ability to create global namespace, high availability, and volume economics enables unique capabilities when Red Hat Storage Server is used on Amazon Web Services (AWS). In this session, you’ll learn about the capabilities and the potential of using AWS ephemeral storage, availability zones, and regions to deliver a truly distributed cloud storage solution that is geographically diverse, cost effective, and highly available.
