FPGA workload acceleration using Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Jon Masters, Red Hat

Field programmable gate arrays (FGPAs) and other programmable logic devices are rapidly gaining traction for emerging data analytics and processing workloads. Their power efficiency and performance advantages are numerous, but FPGAs have traditionally required extreme levels of technical knowledge to use. This is changing, thanks to industry standardization efforts. In this session, attendees will learn about FPGAs and how they can be managed at scale using emerging efforts within the larger open source community, including OpenStack and Kubernetes orchestration.

Modernizing your HPC applications to take full advantage of the open hybrid cloud

Dynamic API back-end selection based on real-time health checks through 3Scale API management and OpenShift
Tom Corcoran, Red Hat
Veer Muchandi, Red Hat

Red Hat OpenShift is a game-changing containerization platform that runs your application workloads as containers at scale. 3Scale by Red Hat is an API gateway solution. While applications APIs can be managed centrally by 3Scale, occasionally an API back-end application may become unavailable. We will demonstrate the implementation of a circuit breaker pattern using a polling mechanism into the 3scale configured API gateway solution running on OpenShift. We will show how to configure the API gateway with primary, secondary, and even tertiary back-end servers to handle any given 3Scale configured API request. The polling mechanism is configured to test the health of each primary (and, if necessary, secondary and tertiary) back end every X miliseconds. This results in a recently proven-to-be-available back end serving each request. It improves application reliability and availability, as well as latency, as there are order-of-magnitude fewer waits for API timeouts.

Fast as lightning : NVMe and NVDIMM's Impact on your data center
Tom Coughlan, Red Hat

The future of storage is memory, and the future of memory is storage. The increasing availability of nonvolatile memory express (NVMe) devices for use across fabric infrastructures and the growth of persistent nonvolatile dual inline memory module (NVDIMM) memory is rapidly changing datacenter architecture. Learn what these technologies are, how you can leverage them, and what's available in Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

S102322 - Unleash innovation with Red Hat cloud management and modern app development

Innovation isn't just about how fast a company can release a new product or service, but also how easy it is to try, produce, evaluate, and iterate upon new concepts. To achieve these fast and automated development cycles, companies are building software using microservice architectures, mobile-first or mobile-only approaches, and DevOps practices—all of which can be streamlined with Red Hat's portfolio of application platforms. These new technologies and concepts must coexist with existing ones in a bimodal approach, which means increasing infrastructure complexity that challenge IT. Red Hat Management products address these challenges by simplifying operationals in terms of overall hybrid infrastructure insight, control, and automation.

The goal of this demonstration is to give a practical example of modern application development approaches and open hybrid cloud management, as well as how they help companies become truely digital businesses—ones in which lines-of-business and IT are agile, productive, and efficient while bringing innovation to the market. We'll simulate a travel agency that needs to provide a new booking service with a mobile app and back-end systems that can be:

- Self provisioned and automatically/continuously deployed
- Easily modified to address new market conditions
- Automatically scaled to meet elastic and unforeseen demands
- Completely managed through the lifecycle according to corporate-defined IT governance processes, compliance rules, and defined policies.

We'll show how this is all possible using
- Red Hat CloudForms to manage the whole environment
- Ansible Tower by Red Hat to automate actions that are usually done manually
- Red Hat OpenStack Platform to provide massively scalable cloud infrastructure platform
- Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform to develop, test, deploy and run container-based applications
- Red Hat JBoss xPaaS Middleware (including Red Hat JBoss EAP, Red Hat JBoss Fuse, and Red Hat JBoss BRMS) PHP and .NET to create and integrate microservices
- Red Hat Mobile Application Platform to develop the mobile app and its back-end connectivity

S102365 - The future Red Hat Middleware portfolio: Stacks and services and solutions

Over the last five years or more—since before the dawn of Red Hat OpenShift—Red Hat JBoss has brought all our middleware products to the cloud. Since Red Hat OpenShift, that effort has redoubled, and with the advent of Red Hat OpenShift 3 (based around Linux containers and Kubernetes), we have been considering what needs to happen beyond just helping our existing products work well in the cloud.

There will be a layer of core middleware services that developers can use to build applications, sitting between (or within) the Linux container and middleware layers. We're refactoring existing products to core services, such as messaging, security, transactions, and cacheing on (or in) Red Hat OpenShift. We're also considering reimplementing existing products to use these core services, though that's likely to be on a case-by-case basis.

In this presentation we'll look at where we've been and where we're going with middleware services within Red Hat OpenShift; what changes are necessary within our middleware products and projects to support the new immutable architectures approach behind Linux containers and Kubernetes; and consider how this impacts developers interested in enterprise microservices—especially those who don't necessarily want to code exclusively in Java.

S104999 - A greybeard's worst nightmare—how Kubernetes and Docker containers are re-defining the Linux OS

OCI (a.k.a. Docker) containers and Kubernetes are having a deep impact on the Linux operating system (OS) that goes well beyond DevOps and cloud-native applications. The concepts of application-centric packaging, process isolation through Linux containers, and immutable infrastructure are shaking up the core traditions of today's GNU/Linux operating systems. These concepts are also challenging the assumptions and approaches derived from the past 40+ years of work that originated with UNIX. The Linux distribution as we know it is coming to an end, and is being replaced by a new concept of containerized, multi-instance, multi-user applications, which can be deployed in scale-out environments. In this session, we'll assess this new OS environment and take a deep look at the consequences this new OS model has for both developers and operators.

Constructive conflict resolution: Playing with fire without getting burnt
Gina Likins, Red Hat

Conflict is unavoidable and, depending on how it's approached (and how you were raised), it can be excruciating. Open source communities often attract people with strong technical backgrounds--and stronger opinions--creating environments where conflicts turn into conflagrations, burning everyone involved. But this doesn't have to be the case. In this talk, I'll present an alternative view of conflict, in which conflict, like fire, is necessary and can be used constructively as a source of good information and forward momentum. You'll leave with a step-by-step plan for working through conflict more constructively. Learn to harness the heat of conflict and how to create a warmth-bringing fire rather than a project-destroying inferno.  


Let's innovate cognitive diversity

S105018 - Migrating to microservice databases—from relational monolith to distributed data

Because microservices consist of a distributed system with multiple moving parts, a single component's downtime can affect the entire system. Managing stateless code is easy, but factoring in persistent state makes things much harder. Thus, zero-downtime migrations are paramount to guarantee integrity and consistency. A "one database per microservice" characteristic creates perplexity. In legacy systems, the traditional model adopts transactions, strong consistency, and create, read, update, delete (CRUD). We must reassess some of these concepts to guarantee integrity and consistency with zero downtime. In this session, we’ll discuss strong and eventual consistency, CRUD, and command and query responsibility segregation (CQRS), event sourcing, and how these techniques relate to each other in different integration and evolution strategies for relational databases. We’ll explore views, materialized views, mirror tables, event sourcing/streaming, data virtualization, change data capture, and how these strategies enable you to build up a microservices architecture from a legacy monolithic relational database.
