Expand your reality with Red Hat at SuperComputing17

Over the years, the SuperComputing conference has become a focal point for many global supercomputing sites to showcase their capabilities and compete for a placement on the coveted Top500 list. Many powerful supercomputers and new technological advances are showcased during the conference, making it perhaps no surprise that Red Hat is planning to be at SuperComputing17 next week to demonstrate our latest high-performance computing (HPC) solutions (booth #1763).

Red Hat has a packed agenda for the show – here’s more about what you can expect to see from us during SuperComputing17.

Keeping pace with multiple architectures (Part 1)

The open source community and the IT industry as a whole continue to discuss how they can use different hardware architectures to solve hard computational problems and address specific workloads. Customers value choice in their technology implementations, and choice is a key benefit of open source solutions. To best meet these needs, the software ecosystem has to

IoT in Enterprise: Scaling from Proof of Concept to Deployment

The Internet of Things (IoT) is gaining steam as businesses across various industries launch projects that instrument, gather, and analyze data to extract value from various connected devices.  While the general vision for IoT may be same – each company is pursuing its own unique approach on how to go about it. The adoption of standards and emergence of industry leaders will help the “wild west” situation we’re in but it is still unknown how long it will take to get there. How should businesses implement their IoT solutions in a way that will allow them flexibility and control no matter what the eventual IoT landscape looks like?

It is relatively easy to put together an IoT solution using

RSA Security Conference 2015 in Review: Three Observations

As many specialists in the security world know – the RSA Security Conference is one of the biggest security conferences in North America. This year it was once again held in San Francisco at the Moscone Center. Every year the conference gets bigger and bigger, bringing in more and more people and companies from all over the world.

If you attended – you may have noticed that Red Hat had a booth this year. Located in the corner of the main expo floor (not far from some of the “big guys” like: IBM, Microsoft, EMC, CA Technologies, and Oracle) we were in a great location – receiving no shortage of traffic.  In fact, despite staffing the booth with six Red Hatters we didn’t have any “down time” –  everyone seemed to be interested in what Red Hat has to offer in security.

Over the course of the conference I made a few interesting observations…

What’s Moving in the World of POWER?

Linux permanently changed the landscape of the datacenter by creating a community approach to rapid innovation. Its introduction and widespread adoption have fueled a shift from closed to open systems, often times providing greater resiliency than other operating environments. Commodity x86 architectures are only one slice of a much larger market for reliable open source enterprise-class systems – and Linux has for many years been a cross-platform operating system. For example, did you know that Red Hat Enterprise Linux also runs on IBM’s Power Systems (POWER) and z Systems architectures? These options give IT organizations flexibility with respect to hardware for workloads and use cases ranging from big data analytics to cloud computing. Ensuring that Red Hat Enterprise Linux runs on IBM’s Power Systems and z Systems architectures gives our customers a broad range of application and deployment choices.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux for Power and Red Hat Enterprise Linux for System z are built

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Powers Scalable Computing Platforms with 10 New World Record Benchmarks

We’ve often talked about how Red Hat Enterprise Linux was fueling top benchmark results on the latest generation of Intel Xeon processors.

Today, we’re pleased to say that Red Hat Enterprise Linux has again demonstrated how an OS platform can handle the rigors of highly multi-threaded processing and on-demand scaling. In the most recent set of benchmarks done with one of the latest cutting edge processors, the Intel Xeon processor E7 v2 family, Red Hat Enterprise Linux claims 10 new world records. Here are these leading results at a glance:
