Get productive using the JBoss Way

The JBoss Way is a better way to build applications, using modern technologies, with a recommended approach that makes you more productive. We’ve assembled and integrated some of the best projects available so developers can focus on building their applications easily.

The JBoss Way provides some exceptional tooling, including Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio, JBoss Forge, and Arquillian to increase productivity. There are a variety of choices and innovations available that all build upon the foundations of Java EE 6 and CDI. Whether you deploy your applications locally or to the cloud, you’ll be using one of the best application servers available. Building applications was never this fun. Follow along the JBoss Way.

Pedal to the metal: Red Hat CloudForms for workload & infrastructure management

Enterprise IT professionals have unique cloud resource challenges. To deploy and manage an enterprise application today, you need a solution that ensures compliance with corporate IT governance requirements and has predictable and repeatable performance and costs. Plus, business users want solutions that can be deployed quickly.

In this session, you’ll learn how to overcome these enterprise-class cloud deployment challenges. See how Red Hat CloudForms can automate OpenStack reference architecture design creation, deployment, and management for workloads and infrastructures.

Learn how to visually inventory deployed OpenStack reference architectures and monitor OpenStack usage, including how to budget for platform usage by project, department, or program, and track and allocate costs in a similar way.

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor roadmap

In this session, you’ll learn about the:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor roadmap and hypervisor features supported in both Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.
  • Integration of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor and Red Hat Storage Server to provide direct storage access to GlusterFS volumes.
  • Future features of the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor that will help shape the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform roadmaps.

Deterministic capacity planning for OpenStack as elastic cloud infrastructure

Capacity planning for elastic cloud infrastructure platforms like OpenStack is critical for successful deployments. The proper sizing of compute resources within OpenStack allows for easier scheduling, optimal efficiency in hardware utilization, and consistency of resource allocation.

Google Compute Engine and Amazon Web Services offer deterministic compute resources designed to meet both cloud provider business requirements and cloud consumer service-level requirements. In this session, we’ll explore these public provider approaches, extend them to OpenStack, and provide sizing data and tools to help with your deployment.

In this session, you’ll learn about:

  • Approaches for providing consistent compute service levels in OpenStack.
  • Building instance families for your workloads.
  • Sizing compute node for OpenStack.

Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure architecture design

This session will explore concepts to help design a large cloud infrastructure using Red Hat CloudForms and Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. You’ll learn how to horizontally scale OpenStack components and how to deploy a control tier that is both highly available and load balanced.

The session will provide general architecture design and concepts, but won’t get too deep into the technical details of the implementation. If you’ve considered building an OpenStack cluster, this session will provide many key concepts to help you make the decisions necessary for deployment.

Deploying an OpenStack private cloud with Red Hat

OpenStack has quickly become the platform of choice for building an open, private cloud. In this panel discussion, Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform customers will share the business and IT challenges they faced that led them to select Red Hat’s solution. You’ll learn why OpenStack became a necessity to meet their growing demands, and why they selected Red Hat as their trusted technology partner to support their private cloud deployments.

The Red Hat ecosystem of certified solutions: Applications, OpenStack, & beyond

Learn how Red Hat collaborates with its technology partners to deliver the world’s largest ecosystem based on open standards. By relying on a product stack that has been certified, customers can accelerate their time-to-market and greatly reduce their deployment risks. Join us as we discuss Red Hat Connect, a new program that brings together hardware, software, and service vendors to deliver secure, innovative solutions.

Symantec Storage Foundation High Availability in Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform

OpenStack is a cloud operating system that controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a datacenter—all managed through a dashboard that gives control to administrators while empowering their users to provision resources through a web interface. OpenStack’s block storage component (Cinder) allows block devices to be exposed and connected to running virtual machines on the compute nodes for providing expanded storage, better performance, and integration with enterprise storage platforms.

In this session, you’ll be introduced to the integration of Symantec Storage Solutions with OpenStack’s Cinder component, which can be achieved with Cinder Drivers provided by Symantec both over NFS and iSCSI backbone. You’ll also get deep dives regarding architectures, configurations, and analysis to help you configure Symantec Storage Foundation High Availability in Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack environments.
