Red Hat Summit 2017 – Planning your InfraOps labs

This year in Boston, MA you can attend the Red Hat Summit 2017, the event to get your updates on open source technologies and meet with all the experts you follow throughout the year.

It’s taking place from May 2-4 and is full of interesting sessions, keynotes, and labs.

This year I was part of the process of selecting the labs you are going to experience at Red Hat Summit and wanted to share here some to help you plan your hands-on time with infrastructure and operations focused labs. These labs are for you to spend time with the experts who will teach you hands-on how to get the most out of your infrastructure and operations products.

Each lab is a 2-hour session, so planning is essential to getting the most out of your days at Red Hat Summit.

As you might be struggling to find and plan your sessions together with some lab time, here is an overview of the labs you can find in the session catalog for exact room and times. Each entry includes the lab number, title, abstract, instructors and is linked to the session catalog entry:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux: The Leading Platform for Top-Tier Performance

Since its introduction more than a decade ago, Red Hat Enterprise Linux has become the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform. Along the way it has set the industry standard for performance as most recently demonstrated by Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 delivering multiple world record-breaking benchmark results at launch. These results showcased close collaboration between Red Hat and our ecosystem of partners.

With history as a backdrop, it should come as no surprise that many of our partners rely on Red Hat Enterprise Linux to support their ongoing benchmarking efforts. Red Hat and Intel have enjoyed a long history of collaboration across a full spectrum of all that is enterprise IT – covering everything from applications running on physical servers to virtualized and cloud-based deployments. In fact, during yesterday’s launch of the Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 processor family

Regarding the Importance of Quality, Trust, and Certifications

Last Thursday’s post directed you to the Red Hat Blog where we underscored why the operating system remains vitally important.  In this related companion piece we’re reminded why quality, a chain of trust, and certifications are integral to enterprise-grade products.  In fact, building upon Red Hat Enterprise Linux helps to ensure that your IT infrastructure (everything from software-defined storage to application containerization to OpenStack solutions) benefits from the same trusted technology pool and serves as an optimized stack.  Click here to learn more.

Red Hat Summit 2014: Interview with Tim Burke (VP of Infrastructure Engineering)

Earlier this morning, Richard Morrell (@EMEACloudGuy) posted his interview with Tim Burke, VP of Infrastructure Engineering, from Red Hat Summit 2014.  Listen here as Tim describes the evolution of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and how infrastructure continues to evolve to meet the needs of developers, new innovations like OpenStack and OpenShift, and even new requirements from segments like telecommunications and financial services.

Richard’s podcasts are also available via iTunes, podfeed.net, and Stitcher.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux: Beyond the World Records

In a recent post, we reviewed the 10 world record results set by Red Hat Enterprise Linux on the Intel Xeon processor E7 v2 family.  Besides showcasing the extreme capabilities of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, these performance achievements tell another compelling story – Red Hat Enterprise Linux has become an exceedingly popular choice when it comes to tough workloads.

For example, consider the share of Red Hat Enterprise Linux versus other operating systems used to produce these records. Out of 20 world record benchmark results (22 total submissions, 3 results were tied) posted by eight different OEM partners at the Intel Xeon processor E7 v2 family announcement, Red Hat Enterprise Linux was used in 12. Seventy-five percent of the hardware vendors taking part in this process chose to publish their world record benchmarks on the new family of processors using Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The chart below shows the significance of this adoption.
