LT122004 - Technological pivot points lightning talks

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
Steven Carter, Red Hat

Adopting cloud technologies and principles in the development and deployment of HPC applications can yield substantial benefits in portability and scientific throughput. This session covers the impediments to running existing HPC applications in the cloud and details how to avoid them.  

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
E.G. Nadhan, Red Hat

If open source is the lighter fluid for innovation, diversity gives it that much-needed spark. Diversity fosters intriguing intersections of thoughts that morph into fertile grounds for innovation. There are several factors that influence the diversity of perspectives on our teams, including gender, nationality, culture, generation, and disability status. But, what really matters is cognitive diversity--diversity of thought. It's not just who you are, but how you think. This session highlights the vital need for cognitive diversity and the manner in which it can nurture the ecosystem for innovation. This session will explore how we create teams with multiple perspectives (e.g., gender, location, background, skillsets) to get more cognitive diversity in approaching problem-solving and new innovative thinking.

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.

PT155007 - NuoDB: Database considerations for the hybrid cloud

Advancements in application architectures, development processes, and storage have enabled organizations to take advantage of cloud benefits such as agility, elasticity, and scale-out across most layers of the infrastructure stack. But one key element - the database tier - has remained stubbornly difficult to modernize. Often, as organizations move toward container and cloud-based environments, they end up leaving their database, their SQL skillsets, expectations of transactional consistency, and sometimes even their precious data behind. To address this problem, a new class of database - the elastic SQL database - has emerged. These solutions combine the ACID guarantees and SQL interface on which applications rely, while also allowing dynamic capacity management, continuous availability, multi-datacenter operation, and radical operational simplicity. Join us to learn what makes an elastic SQL database an ideal solution for modern hybrid cloud applications. We'll demonstrate how you can take advantage of this technology to optimize your application for fast transactional responsiveness, continuous availability, and full-active database utilization, even across multiple clouds, data centers, or hybrid environments.

While the fundamental nature of integration does not change rapidly, the environment and process by which we integrate is in the middle of a complete revolution that requires ground-up support in the tools and platforms we use to perform integration. In this session, we'll examine some of the most significant market, architectural, and technological trends in enterprise integration, the move to containerized and immutable infrastructure, and the emergence of new classes of integrators within organizations that expect to create, configure, deploy and manage integrations without involving a developer or integration expert.

S109081 - The Three Pillars that Apply Agile to Integration

As Agile practices have revolutionized software engineering in general, they have also changed the way integration is implemented in the enterprise.  The best integration platforms have evolved to support a new class of users:  agile integrators.  Fast moving, highly productive teams feature some developers that have an integration responsibility, likely amongst other responsibilities. Some integration technology products have evolved to serve this user class, focusing on 3 pillars of capability

  • Distributed Integration - based on Camel routes, which support modern microservice architectures and more distributed development styles vs traditional ESBs.

  • Containers - enabling a DevOps capability across applications and integrations.

  • API’s - delivering re-usability of managed end-points.  

Attend this session to learn about the Agile Integration methodology and how it improves productivity for modern application development for the agile developer.

S104851 - On the path to building an event-monitoring data pipeline for storage microservices

Over the past few years, telecommunications companies have invested significantly in large, multi-tenant cloud deployments and aspire to operate with high efficieny by running and orchestrating a suite of infrastructure microservices at scale. These cloud deployments and services are backed by systems that are typically shared by tenants and as these environments scale, the need to streamline operational control by managing these systems with a higher degree of predictability becomes imperative. In this talk, we will present a production, multi-tenant (containerized) compute and software-defined (Red Hat Ceph and Gluster) storage microservices architecture, discuss the typical workloads that are imposed on the system and examine key events that are generated by discrete components that comprise the overall system. Subsequently, we will propose a set of open-source technologies utilized to build a pipeline that encompasses collection of these events, appropriate storage of these events and a Kappa (Analytics) architecture that leverages an in-memory analytics engine - Apache Spark - to correlate these events in order to extract operational insight with predictability. As a result, we advocate that event data is voluminous, has numerous properties and, in some cases, may require a grouping of multiple events to create a more complex event. Furthermore, the characterization and evaluation of complex events to predictively recognize and avert potential issues is highly dependent on the temporal relevance of the event data of concern. We hope to demonstrate how simple machine learning algorithms may be applied to extract typical (affinity) and atypical (interference) patterns of resource behavior within the shared, distributed system and how building a parametric model with suitable weightings for different features may be useful in making these predictions with increased accuracy and in taking the appropriate remedial action.

L99899 - Creating and using source-to-image builders for OpenShift

Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform uses source-to-image (S2I) to build and deploy applications from source code. S2I builder images take your source code as input, runs the build, converts your application source into a container image, stores it into a container registry, and then deploys it onto the platform to run. Since the containers are built on the platform itself, you have control over build steps to significantly reduce the chances of malicious processes running in the containers. In this lab, we'll teach you to create your own S2I builder images that run on OpenShift. This is an advanced  lab that requires prior experience with OpenShift.

The ease of the Camel REST DSL
Mary Cochran, Red Hat 

REST services are becoming an increasingly popular way of connecting devices to the cloud and systems to each other. From Red Hat JBoss Fuse 6.2 on, support for the Camel REST DSL is available. The REST DSL allows for the creation of REST services—using either the Restlet, Servlet, Jetty, or a variety of other components for implementation—more quickly and easily than ever. The REST DSL removes the dependency that xcfrs has on CXF. Support for this new component reduces complexity while increasing the speed of development. In this session, we'll lay out the simplicity and elegance with which Camel REST DSL facilitates rapid development of microservices and addresses complex integration needs.

P104684 - Why education needs the open source community

Our education system is outdated and in crisis. But with participation and support from Red Hat, educational institutions are achieving transformative, positive results by integrating open source values, tools, and processes to innovate education for the 21st century.

For example, with more than 4,000 student laptops running Linux and open source software exclusively, Penn Manor School District supports the largest public school program of its kind on the east coast of the United States.

At Duke University, Open Source Pedagogy, Research + Innovation (OSPRI) is integrating open source principles like open knowledge, transparency, meritocracy, and collaboration into an open source curricular pathway and a humanitarian, free, open source innovation grant program.

And Rochester Institute of Technology houses the nation’s first academic minor in free and open source software (FOSS) and culture, as well as the LibreCorps initiative, which partners with humanitarian and civic organizations to place students in FOSS co-op positions.

During this session, you will learn how open source has led to impactful, student-centered learning at the three institutions mentioned above; how a more expansive vision for the intersection of open source and education innovation will better prepare students for a world that is becoming more open and collaborative; and what specific steps you as an educator or open source community member can take to contribute to making this vision a reality.

S104376 - Ceph as Monash University's research data engine

In 2015 Monash University built the southern hemisphere's largest (known) Ceph cluster containing 5PB of raw storage across 40 Dell servers with 1100 OSDs. Today that cluster is at almost 7PB, and services a wide variety of research workloads from well over 1000 users across Monash's research intensive Clayton precinct. Prior to this large deployment we cut our teeth on Ceph on its home-turf - as block storage for OpenStack Cinder within Monash’s node of the Nectar Research Cloud (a federation of distributed OpenStack cells) - that was in 2013 and since then we’ve seen Ceph’s popularity and community grow, with the first APAC Ceph Day hosted at Monash in late 2015. At Monash Red Hat Ceph Storage replaces legacy SAN storage for research computing, servicing use-cases from desktop CIFS file-shares to instrument data-capture and management, via HPC cluster home-directories and software libraries. The wide-variety of use-cases in the research space are what attracted us to Ceph in the first place - a storage unicorn that could service block, object and file workloads was a bandwagon we wanted to be on! Furthermore, the inherent difficulty in predicting the capacity and performance needs meant that a software-defined approach with no vendor lock-in was a key requirement for controlling costs and ensuring virtually unlimited scalability. In this talk we'll cover the high-level business and strategic challenges that led us to this solution and discuss how with first Inktank, then Red Hat’s support we have tackled the challenges of architecting, deploying, and operating a cluster of this size (spoiler: it isn't that hard). We'll dive into some of the issues and pitfalls we've faced along the way and talk about some of the key use-cases and scientific data workflows that this infrastructure supports, for example, data capture, management and sharing from various microscopes across several facilities and platforms. To wrap up we'll look at our current progress in rolling out CephFS for production use-cases and detail how we managed to keep the whole thing in-service whilst it was physically moved to a new data-centre - this relocation is being planned now and will be complete by the time of the summit, so come along to find out whether there was a happy ending!

Increasingly complicated applications and demands for faster development are putting even more pressure on infrastructure, IT teams, and processes. It's more important than ever to have the right technologies in place. Containers deliver applications faster and scale them more rapidly. The advantages are numerous but can only be realized if the containers and their deployment include strong security.

S105004 - Managing services with Red Hat CloudForms and Ansible by Red Hat

Self-service is an important step in any organization’s cloud journey, with direct and measurable benefits. By automating the lifecycle of IT resources, and allowing end users to request those resources directly without IT’s involvement, organizations can be more responsive to the business. Self-service can be a double edged sword though, and must be implemented carefully with proper controls and governance. In this technical session, we will talk about services management in Red Hat CloudForms. We will explore how to design services, publish them in a catalog, provision them and manage their operational life, before decommissioning them. We will have an in-depth look at the important role that Ansible by Red Hat plays in the entire process, from service composition to delegated operations and compliance.

S111019 - Unlocking Big Data Infrastructure Efficiency with Hadoop over disaggregated storage

Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) constantly face pressure to keep up with the demands of the big-data age. The data footprints for the big data workloads span several petabytes which means hundreds of terabytes of new storage infrastructure acquisition every year. At such a scale, any inefficiencies in capital expenditures (CapEx) and resource allocation are greatly magnified. CSPs today need to meet these storage-acquisition challenges of the data explosion while remaining competitive. They need to be agile, drive differentiation, and provide value-added services that satisfy consumer demands.

Because of the way that Apache Hadoop* is designed, Hadoop nodes share both processing and storage responsibilities. Data stored in Hadoop is stored in the native Hadoop Distributed File System* (HDFS) on hard drives that are local to the Hadoop nodes. As a result, Hadoop storage and compute are bound to Hadoop nodes and cannot be scaled independently. When organizations acquire more Hadoop storage, they end up purchasing compute resources that they might not need. Over time, acquiring more Hadoop storage leads to more and more compute capacity going unused, which is a waste of processing cycles and IT spending. This problem is especially significant at the CSP scale. Running Hadoop over Disaggregated Storage provides flexibility to scale compute and storage infrastructure independently. CEPH provides as implementation option of such disaggregated storage with all the advantages scale out storage capabilities like high performance Write Journal, Storage tiering, Replication, Compression, Erasure Codes.

In this session, we will outline service provider data growth challenges, provide disaggregated Ceph over Hadoop solution architecture, share performance benchmark results (Tera, DFSIO) and provide best practices.

B104230 - Containers and the enterprise—how do we accelerate adoption?

There’s nothing stopping many of the biggest software companies from turning to containers to deliver their software, but the industry is struggling with organic enterprise adoption. Right now, containers are seen as too-in-the-weeds tech-y, and enterprises don’t always understand the benefits. However, container technology holds a solution to the problems many organizations struggle with when it comes to software delivery. In this session, we'll examine the great potential that container technology holds for enterprises providing new ways to process inefficiencies, increase collaboration, reduce vendor lock-in, and more. We'll also discuss how container technology needs to integrate with existing systems, such as enterprise security and identity access management (IAM), monitoring and alerting, and how it can significantly increase enterprise deployment cycles through deployment pipeline automation and integration.

S102032 - Choosing the right storage for your OpenStack cloud

Choosing the right storage to meet various requirements of applications in an enterprise is challenging and time consuming herculean task especially when there are too many choices in the market. The story is no different when it comes to cloud IaaS using OpenStack for both public and private clouds especially when massive scalability is taken into account. One need to take too many factors into account when trying to zero in on the right storage to meet all use cases. Throughout this session, we will discuss: Details of OpenStack components like Nova, Cinder, Glance, Swift, Manila, etc that require a storage back end and how they use storage. What type of storages are available in the market, how to identify which storage is going to give optimum performance with scalability. Implications of choosing a wrong storage back end. Concept of SDS vis-a-vis to OpenStack and how Ceph can be used to meet all of the storage use cases for OpenStack, its advantages and disadvantages. When it makes sense to use a storage solution from a commercial vendor in the market instead of using out of the box Ceph storage? Factors to consider while architecting multiple storage back ends for OSP to support various workloads,cost, performance, protocol,connectivity type, capacity and scalability At the end of the session, attendees will be confident about various aspects of storage requirements for OpenStack and what type of storage is best suited for their cloud workloads while addressing all of the scalability, performance, manageability and operational aspects.

S102068 - DevSecOps the open source way

DevOps purists may chafe at the DevSecOps term given that security and other important practices are supposed to already be an integral part of routine DevOps workflows. But the reality is that security often gets more lip service than thoughtful and systematic integration. This despite a threat environment, distributed development teams, and rapid iterative releases requiring security approaches that are continuous, adaptive, and heavily automated. Red Hat’s expertise with open source software and practices offers direct lessons for DevSecOps. In this session, we’ll look at successful practices that distributed and diverse teams use to iterate rapidly while still reacting quickly to threats and minimizing business risk. We’ll discuss how a platform like OpenShift can serve as the foundation for DevSecOps in your organization. We’ll also consider the risk management associated with integrating components from a variety of sources—another consideration that open source has had since the beginning. Finally, we’ll show ways by which automation using tools such as Ansible and repeatable trusted delivery of code can be built directly into a DevOps pipeline.

S104878 - Deep dive on case management

Nowadays, the work performed by employees on a day-to-day basis isn't typically a well-defined sequence of tasks, but rather depends much more on the so-called knowledge workers to evaluate the data specific to the case and to collaborate with others to achieve their goals. To be able to better assist these kinds of users, traditional Business Process Management (BPM) Suites have evolved to include much more advanced features related to this case management. On top of that, these workers could benefit a lot from advanced applications, customized to the use case they are trying to solve. In this session, you will receive a deep dive from the experts into what case management is and how we extended our existing framework to better support these kinds of use cases. We will show how you can also develop a customized application on top of Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite more quickly, taking advantage of these advanced capabilities.

S105156 - Open Service Broker API: Enabling microservices in the enterprise

Connectivity is not enough to implement microservices-based systems on Kubernetes. Application authors want a seamless service experience that includes connectivity and adding coordinates, credentials, and configuration into their applications. To meet this need, the Kubernetes service catalog uses the Open Service Broker application programming interface (API) to connect any application deployed in Kubernetes to a wide variety of service brokers in a microservices-based software enivronment. The Open Service Broker API lets service operators integrate with multiple platforms using a single API specification. As a result of this integration pattern, service users benefit from ease and consistency of use across different types of services from different producers, while service producers benefit from having one integration point that gives them access to multiple platforms. In this session, we'll cover the high-level concepts of the Open Service Broker API and show a glimpse of a beautiful future where Post-it notes, carrier pigeons, and long-distance runners are no longer involved in app configuration.

S101993 - The hardest part of microservices is your data

Slides available at

One of the tenants of microservices, and a way to minimize dependencies, is that “a service should own its own database.” This is easier said than done. Why? Because: your data. In working with data in information systems for 5 decades, application developers have accepted the practice of using relational databases and relying on all of their safety guarantees. But, as we build services architectures that span more than one database by design (as with microservices), things get harder. How do we synchronize data across databases, especially heterogeneous data? Developing for the traditional enterprise, we have to build fast-changing systems that are surrounded by legacy systems with complicated domains like finance, insurance, and retail. So, how do we develop and reason about the boundaries in our system to reduce complexity in the domain?

In this session, we’ll explore these problems and see how domain driven design (DDD) helps grapple with the domain complexity. We’ll see how DDD concepts like entities and aggregates help us understand boundaries—based on use cases and how transactions are affected. With transactional boundaries, we can more carefully adjust our needs from the CAP theorem to scale out and achieve autonomous systems with eventual strictly ordered consistency. We’ll see how technologies like Apache Kafka, Apache Camel, and can help build the backbone for these types of systems. And finally, we’ll look at a working example that brings all of this together.

The Red Hat team had the opportunity to work with a lot of customers, this one in particular was struggling with their application deployment process. Their current processes were fragile and didn’t meet the business needs to be more flexible, automated, and cloud-centric. The customer IT department realized if they didn’t address these problems soon there was a high risk that individual business units were going to start looking to other partners for serving their IT needs. In this session, we will cover in depth the following areas:

  • Main hosting focus areas and business drivers that lead to the adoption of OpenShift
  • Application delivery methodologies that were modernized using
  • OpenShift How OpenShift was able to directly solve the challenges and focus areas set out by IT leadership.

S105141 - Big data analytics with Silicon Valley Data Science and Red Hat

In the beginning, there was MapReduce over HDFS analyzing clickstream data. Since the advent of modern big data, there's been an explosion of analytics frameworks—both inside and outside of the Hadoop ecosystem. To maximize the business benefit of these varied frameworks, data-driven enterprises have deployed many different specialized clusters, each with a transferred version of the data. This can result in latency, additional cost, and potential inconsistencies. On-demand provisioning of right-sized compute pools for Spark, Hive, Hadoop, and Kafka processing, using common object storage, matches the right storage and infrastructure technology to achieve faster business insights, frequently improving agility and reducing total cost. Silicon Valley Data Science, together with Red Hat describe practical examples of how and why large companies are adopting these emerging big data architectures, illustrating how Red Hat OpenStack and Ceph can be used for these patterns.

S102938 - Neurodiversity in the workforce

Neurodiversity is a concept that respects and recognizes neurological differences, just like any other human variation. These differences can include those labeled with dyspraxia, dysleItxia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), dyscalculia, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), Tourette's syndrome, and others.

Many people display these differences:

  • It's estimated that up to 43 million people (15% of the U.S. population) have dyslexia 
  • Approximately 5 million 4- to 17-year olds (11% of the age group) have been diagnosed with ADHD 
  • Roughly 60% of children with ADHD become adults with ADHD; that's 4 % of the adult population
  • One in 65 children is diagnosed with ASD
  • 35% of students labeled as “learning disabled" drop out of high school, twice the rate of their peers 
  • Between 30% and 80% of the prison population has a learning disability

Many people with learning differences possess attributes such as intelligence and memory, the ability to see patterns and pay close attention to detail on repetitive tasks. If companies in the high-tech sector--who have many vacant jobs--could harness this talent, we could start to employee very talented and creative people.

In this session, we are looking to raise public awareness of neurodiversity and explore what it means to employees and employers. We will also offer examples how companies such as SAP and Microsoft have started rolling out neurodiversity programs.

Eclipse Vert.x is a toolkit to create reactive distributed and polyglot applications on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). It takes the JVM to new levels of performance, yet has a small API. It lets you build scalable, microservice-based applications transparently distributed and packaged as a single jar file. This simplicity makes deploying and managing Vert.x applications on OpenShift a breeze. Upload your jar and Vert.x connects all your pods and services. That's not all, the application you're developing with Vert.x is "reactive": It's responsive, elastic, resilient, uses asynchronous message-passing saving resources, and handles a huge level of concurrency. How does that work on OpenShift?

In this session, you'll see how the combination of Vert.x and OpenShift paves a new way to build and manage reactive systems. You'll see several examples and a demonstration of how Vert.x simplifies not only development, but thanks to OpenShift, the deployment and management of your distributed system. Everything you need will be covered in this session: service discovery, resilience pattern, rolling updates, monitoring, and metrics. This is a "slide-less" session consisting of pure, live coding.

S107273 - Integrated security in CI/CD with Red Hat OpenShift

Building and deploying cloud native applications using Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is easy. You can start from a default template, obtain a template from an application owner, or create an application from source. However, this model abstracts many security decisions from application owners. Applications developed and maintained without security in mind present a likely entry point for malicious attackers. Preventative steps should be taken to reduce vulnerabilities and avoid zero-day attacks. As organizations adopt containers, an automated supply chain with built-in security testing can increase productivity and reduce risk. In this session, you'll learn how Red Hat OpenShift, Blackduck, Cloudforms and OpenSCAP can be used together to:  

  • Create an automated continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline that monitors vulnerabilities in open source libraries.  
  • Define a security policy for any image in your OpenShift environment and flag images that violate that policy.  
  • Execute container scans in containerized Jenkins workers running in OpenShift.  
  • Automatically scan OpenShift Image Streams for security vulnerabilities.  
  • Proactively monitor for vulnerability disclosures, identify security issues within the software supply chain, and gate deployments based on policy.

L100472 - Hands on HACEP: Highly available and horizontally scalable complex event processing

Recognizing important patterns in data, as they occur in real time, is critical. With complex event processing (CEP), organizations can recognize, understand, and react to business events faster by processing large volumes of inbound data. This includes data from social networks, remote sensor readings, online-gaming player events, credit card transactions, and location data from delivery vehicles. Critical CEP workloads require solutions that tolerate the failure of one or more processing nodes, while easily scaling to handle growing data volumes. They must process a high volume, velocity, and variety of inbound data, infer the context, and take appropriate action in real time while adhering to stringent availability and scalability service level agreements. In this lab, you'll implement a simple rule-based, event-based application on a cluster of distributed nodes. You'll see your events and rules scale up and down thanks to HACEP, which is the combination of Red Hat JBoss BRMS superpowered with Red Hat JBoss Data Grid.

PT155018 - CollabNet: Value streams for the enterprise

While automation of the Continuous Delivery pipeline is one important component of DevOps, the other critical component is the continuous feedback loop. Organizations tried to solve this problem by bringing together metrics from various tools across the pipeline, but the lack of context made these metrics less optimal and, many times, resulted in creating silos of key metrics. However, there is a measuring and monitoring approach around Value Streams that is addressing the meaningful metrics gap. Come learn and see how one can leverage Value Streams to enable continuous monitoring and feedback across applications and services.

S101752 - Red Hat Unified Infrastructure - software defined remote office ops

When it comes to remote facilities - be they retail stores, drilling rigs, or even a number of military use cases - IT professionals are challenged with requirements for which hyperconverged (HCI) has emerged a star. Operational efficiency has never been merely a nice-to-have goal, but with these remote operations in particular the need has become increasingly acute. Eliminating a discrete storage tier emerges as a core benefit, considerably reducing footprint and many extraneous storage management headaches. With RHUI, additional big-picture benefits can be realized through the management integrations across the broader Red Hat software defined infrastructure stack.

S101957 - Hybrid automation at Rabobank

Like many large IT organizations, Rabobank had many departments working together on the same application stack. This resulted in wait times between the various parts of the IT organization, which in turn increased the total deployment time for new virtual machines. In 2015, Rabobank chose a more complete automation and management solution—Red Hat CloudForms, Red Hat Satellite, and Ansible Tower by Red Hat. This gave Rabobank self-service infrastructure, a centrally managed operating system, automated provisioning and application deployment. This session will highlight how Red Hat Management reduced wait times and increased IT service delivery, the initial discovery session that sparked the initiative, the architecture design, and project results.

S102717 - How to craft a successful API strategy

APIs are powerful but, for many teams, very new. A strategy for APIs is complex, because it needs to cover many areas. Definition and execution of an API strategy involves many roles and teams, and not just tech anymore. Many teams don't know how to articulate the benefits of APIs to craft an API strategy. In this session, we'll give a general intro to "the API economy," and winning API strategies in that economy. We'll introduce several models, tools, practical checklists, and discuss concrete API program do's and don'ts. Topics that we'll cover include business drivers for APIs and API management, API strategy models and methodology, case study examples from actual teams, best practices of successful API teams, and practical checklists. The session will be a mix of presentations, discussions, and hands-on activities.

S103938 - The art of blameless retrospectives

Retrospectives are not just about making you feel bad for missing your commitments, pointing fingers at your colleagues, and hearing your more talkative team members go on and on. They are supposed to help your team learn how to nimbly respond to failure and empower you to change the things that are not working for you. However, older management styles have helped us learn and perfect the arts of finger-pointing, competition, and siloism as methods of achieving success in the workplace. This talk is for anyone who participates in retrospectives, doesn’t always feel they are useful, and wants to learn a better way to accomplish the intended goal.

S103944 - Are you being served? Containers, microservices and the cloud-native telco


Red Hat and Affirmed Networks address the new requirements from Telco &  NFV Cloud Service Providers(CSPs)  to move from monolithic software architectures towards a cloud native microservices.

  • Cloud Native Computing Foundation(CNFC) defines Cloud Native architecture as being container packaged, dynamically managed and microservices oriented
  • Telco 3GPP standards and Virtual Network Function (VNF) vendors are driving “cloud native” deployments - container microservices that are lightweight, scalable, resilient  to meet the needs of 4G-LTE/5G, IoT and never-ending appetite of mobile applications.
  • Moving NFV clouds to containers needs to address - high performance container networking, multi-tenenacy, container security, orchestration and integration
  • Telco clouds will need to support mixed deployments of VMs and containers on multi-site infrastructure, compute, networking, storage

In this session we will cover

  • What is a Cloud Native architecture for a Telco and what are the benefits of Containers and Microservices?
  • Where CSPs and NFV standards bodies are moving to with the VNF software architectures that will drive requirements into OpenStack and OpenShift (container platform)
  • The  evolution of the CSP network from the virtualized VM based deployments to the mix of VMs, Containers in VMs and Containers on bare metal.
  • Gaps in the Container ecosystem that need to be addressed for VNFs – orchestration limitation, managed multi-tenancy, multi-interface, network security, high performance datapath, performance tuning.
  • What VNFs positioned for containerized deployments: Red Hat and Affirmed Networks will cover customer requirements for vEPC, vCPE, 5G NG-Core, vIMS, vGiLAN services
  • Potentially, a demonstration of the vEPC on Red Hat OpenStack in Containers.

S104078 - GPUs: Using HMM to blur the lines between CPU and GPU programming

HMM (Heteregeneous Memory Management) is the name of an upcoming Linux kernel patchset, authored by Red Hat's Jerome Glisse. The patchset enables graphics processing unit (GPU) programmers (CUDA programmers, for example) to write code that treats "a pointer as a pointer": the same pointer values can be used in both central processing unit (CPU) and GPU code. This significantly simplifies both writing new CUDA programs and porting older C/C++ (or even Fortran) programs to use GPU acceleration. In other words, malloc(3) can be called to allocate a buffer on the CPU, and that buffer's address can be passed to a CUDA kernel that runs on the GPU. HMM migrates the pages automatically. This session will cover the improved programming model, some bandwidth and tuning considerations, and possibly kernel implementation details (upon request, if time allows).

S107224 - Why storage matters for your digital transformation

If your organization is currently in the midst of a digital transformation, you have a lot on your mind. How can you keep infrastructure stable and reliable while, at the same time, delivering services to an ever-broadening set of users? How can you cope with a growing digital footprint without breaking the bank?

One of the most important, and expensive, parts of your infrastructure is storage. But traditional storage appliances can be inflexible and expensive. To be successful, you need to consider all of your available options.

Red Hat Storage offers software-defined storage solutions that run on standard servers and disks and provide flexible, scalable services that traditional appliances never could. These technologies behave like the other modern software platforms you use—and work well alongside them. In this session, aimed at IT strategists and practitioners, you'll learn how software-defined storage can help you meet tomorrow’s demands.

S111012 - Challenges in a Microservices Age: Monitoring, Logging and Tracing on OpenShift Until recently, applications ran on a handful of carefully curated technologies for years to come, deployments were static and teams siloed. In the microservices age, teams are cross-functional, pick the technologies they consider to work best for them, and are held accountable for what they produce. Application deployments are fine-grained, frequent, scalable and fully automated. What a shift and what a challenge for monitoring such environments! In this session, you'll learn how you to obtain insights into your OpenShift environment by exploring various open-source monitoring, logging, and tracing technologies, including Heapster, Grafana, Fluentd, Elastic, Kibana, Jolokia and OpenTracing. We'll compare these to a commercial full-stack monitoring solution from Dynatrace, which is powered by artificial intelligence. 45 Minutes Breakout session Martin Etmajer
