Optimization – we’ve all heard this term a million times. Without a doubt, it is a term that is used during company meetings, in the analyst community, and is, of course, a favorite topic to “pick on” for technology cartoons. In the technology sector IT optimization “carries the day”. But, even then, “IT optimization” is a term that is often so overused that we all think we know what it is… but do we really?

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 sessions, birds-of-a-feather sessions, mini sessions, panels, workshops, 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.

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:

Hyperconvergence is a key topic in IT planning across industries today. As customers look to lower costs and simplify day to day management of their IT operations, the hyperconverged model emerges as fit in a number of operational use cases.
Convergence began at the hardware level, with compute, network, and storage appearing in consolidated platforms, but it’s now accelerating as hyperconvergence goes “software defined”. As a leading software infrastructure stack provider, Red Hat recognizes that reducing the overall moving parts in your infrastructure and simplifying the procurement and deployment processes are core requirements of the next generation elastic datacenter.
Applying a solutions-aligned lens, Red Hat is innovating software defined compute-storage solutions across the portfolio, designed to meet the needs of a broad customer base with diverse requirements. As a vendor-partner in this journey, we recognize the value of bringing storage close to your compute and eliminating the need for discreet storage tier. Doing so across both traditional virtualization and cloud, as well as containers and leveraging our industry-proven software defined storage assets – Red Hat Gluster and Red Hat Ceph Storage – we’ve defined a robust set of efficient, solution-aligned hyperconverged offerings.
This blog provides a short overview of several areas where we see hyperconverged software defined architectures aligning with use cases, with a focus on

Some time ago, two different projects were started in the open source community, namely: Ipsilon and Keycloak. These projects were started by groups with different backgrounds and different perspectives. In the beginning, it seemed like these two projects would have very little in common… though both aimed to include

Woah. 2015 went by really quickly. I do suppose it’s not all that surprising as time flies… especially when you’re having fun or… getting older (you pick). In fact, we’ve already put 2 percent of 2016 behind us! That said, before we get too deep into “the future”, and in consideration of Janus having not one but two faces, let’s take a quick trip down memory lane…
Without a doubt, 2015 was an exciting year for all things “container”, especially here at Red Hat.
To recap, the year started off with a bang when we announced the general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host alongside Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1. Then – less than two months later

Six months ago we announced the beta availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Two months ago, at Red Hat Summit 2014, we announced the availability of a release candidate for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. All the while we have been validating what’s new, different, and exciting about what Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 has to offer – including:
Today we are pleased to announce the general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, the latest major release of our flagship platform. As stated in this morning’s press release:
