Automating Red Hat Enterprise Linux deployments with Cisco ACI & OpenStack

The drive to simplify IT tasks has led to Cisco developing an open application-centric policy model as the foundation for datacenter automation.

In this session, you’ll learn how:

  • To incorporate an application-centric SDN policy model for Red Hat Enterprise Linux and OVS deployments.
  • The ACI model can easily be incorporated into an OpenStack management framework.
  • Cisco is opening up the ACI framework and working with various open source communities.

Innovation in the enterprise with OpenStack

Do you see OpenStack as a strategic part of your private cloud strategy, but face the usual hurdles of using open source software in an enterprise environment? Learn how the Dell IT Emerging Technologies team partnered with Red Hat to face these challenges using OpenStack to create a private cloud-based lab for rapid technology incubation and experimentation.

Got downtime? Building QoS into the cloud

By 2017, half of all companies will likely have hybrid cloud deployments. As companies move to deploy mission-critical applications to the cloud, ensuring 24×7 quality of service, security, and compliance are built into the cloud is mandatory.

In this session, IBM’s Kershaw Metha will join Steve Dickens to provide an overview and host a discussion about how new integrated IBM hardware and OpenStack software innovations are enabling differentiated capabilities for Red Hat Enterprise Linux-based hybrid cloud deployments.

Empowering enterprise IT

Datacenter operators face increasingly difficult challenges related to the massive growth in web-scale applications, Platform-as-a-Service, network traffic, storage, and the diversity of workloads. Enterprises need to deliver services across compute, network, and storage with greater agility and improved TCO.

Virtualization was the first phase for datacenter operators who are now asking, “What’s next? How do I deliver the next wave of datacenter efficiency? How do I offer the agility that public cloud providers like Amazon deliver?”

In this session, you’ll learn about Intel’s vision for the future of IT infrastructures and how Red Hat is uniquely positioned to help customers in the changing landscape of IT.

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.
