Ultimate Guide to Red Hat Summit 2018 Labs: Hands-on with RHEL

This year you’ve got a lot of decisions to make before you got to Red Hat Summit in San Francisco, CA from 8-10 May 2018.

There are breakout sessionsbirds-of-a-feather sessionsmini sessionspanelsworkshops, and instructor led labs that you’re trying to juggle into your daily schedule. To help with these plans, let’s try to provide an overview of the labs in this series.

In this article let’s examine a track focusing only on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). It’s a selection of labs where you’ll get hands-on with package management, OS security, dig into RHEL internals, build a RHEL image for the cloud and more.

The following hands-on labs are on the agenda, so let’s look at the details of each one.

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.

We’re changing up our marketing approach. And it involves comic books.

We’re adopting a new marketing mantra for Red Hat Enterprise Linux: Listen. Learn. Build. Which probably doesn’t seem all that revolutionary. That’s pretty much the mantra of open source. But compare that to how tech marketing usually happens.

There’s a lot of building–assets and advertisements and the whole nine yards. But the listening and learning parts usually happen afterwards, if at all.

So we’re making a conscious effort to explicitly apply the principles of open source to the way that we market our flagship open source technology. We’re starting with the listening part.

And who exactly are we listening to? You.

And what exactly are we listening to you talk about? Your OS adventures.

And what exactly do we mean by “OS adventures”?–

–Actually, here’s a better idea. Instead of telling you what we’re doing and why, let’s show you…

Supercomputing & Red Hat: What’s Happening at ISC 2017?

Twice a year the most prominent supercomputing sites in the world get to showcase their capabilities and compete for a Top500 spot. With Linux dominating the list, Red Hat is paying close attention to the latest changes that will be announced at International Supercomputing (ISC) show in Frankfurt, Germany between June 18 to June 22, 2017.

While supercomputers of the past were often proprietary, the trend of building them out of commodity components has dominated the landscape in the past two decades. But recently the definition of “commodity“ in HPC has been morphing. Traditional solutions are routinely augmented by various acceleration technologies, cache-coherent interconnects are becoming mainstream and boutique hardware and software technologies previously reserved for highly specialized solutions are being adopted by major HPC sites at scale.

Developing new and adapting existing highly scalable applications to take advantage of the new technological advances across multiple deployment domains is the greatest challenge facing HPC sites. This is where the operating system can provide

Events and Monitoring Supercharging your Operational Intelligence

Previously in The Quest for Operations Intelligence, the focus was placed on what can be delivered with log aggregation and how to improve it. A conclusion was that to have full situational awareness on IT, you would need logs, metrics, configuration and events information correlated for easy one stop analysis when problems arise.

While we talked about logs, metrics and configuration in depth, we left events at the time without any sort of definition. What are events and what can we use them for in our quest for operations happiness?

Ops Happiness – Harness Data for Operations Intelligence

As covered in the previous article, The Quest for Operations Intelligence, we have very high expectations from any modern Cloud architecture applications deployed on Red Hat hybrid cloud solutions.

No matter how much support is put into place, the customer needs to be able to operate their hybrid clouds.

After taking a look a correlating all of the available data we reached a conclusion in the previous article that we needed to do something more

Observations from ARM TechCon 2016

Two weeks ago, I attended ARM TechCon, the annual developer conference showcasing the latest offerings from ARM and its partners.  There were a lot of new products (new and improved processor cores, radios and other IP), announcements with key themes around IoT (Internet of Things), mobile, security, automotive functional safety, and embedded software development.  This was the first TechCon after ARM was acquired by Softbank for $32B this summer, so there was great interest in hearing what Masayoshi Son (Chairman & CEO of Softbank) would say in his first public appearance with ARM.  Masayoshi Son talked about
