The Red Hat Virtual Experience is an event focused on open source technologies and Red Hat Enterprise Linux solutions for virtualization and cloud computing. The event will include a broad range of learning opportunities - both from key Red Hat executive and industry leaders as well as from other attendees facing the same issues you see every day.
All presentations are available on-demand until April 4, 2010.
|Business Track||Introduction to Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization||This session will cover everything from Red Hat's new Red Hat Enterprise Linux virtualization hypervisor to the rich Red Hat Enterprise Linux virtualization management platform, with features such as high availability, live migration, clustering, image management and system scheduler.|
|The Cloud - An Introduction||Interest in cloud computing has been growing rapidly over the past year, with many enterprises looking to deploy cloud solutions that will enable them to reduce costs and increase their operational flexibility. In this session, learn more on how to get started with cloud computing.|
|Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization: Planning For Your Datacenter||In this economy, every budget dollar and every minute of time is precious. In this session, watch a demonstration of Red Hat's online tool for configuration and learn how Red Hat's subscription model simplifies configuration and planning for your virtual datacenter. Also examine the total cost of ownership of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization for Servers solutions and compare those costs to other virtualization platforms in the market.|
|Safeguarding your Data with Desktop Virtualization||This session focuses on the use of desktop virtualization technology as a way to centralize sensitive information in the data center, as opposed to having it reside on an organization's laptops and desktops. This dramatically increases the security of this sensitive information, driving the ability to meet many of today's demanding compliance regulations. Specifically, this session will examine how Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager for Desktops will provide this security, while at the same time delivering an end user experience that is indistinguishable from that of a physical desktop.|
|Technical Track||Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization: Breaking Performance and Scalability Barriers||This session will discuss the scalability features of the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization platform, which allow customers to deploy even the largest mission critical workloads without sacrificing performance.|
|Building Your Own Cloud Infrastructure with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization||As virtualization continues to move into the mainstream, many IT departments and architects are becoming increasingly interested in cloud computing and its influence on data center architecture. In this session, get a first-hand look at how to build your own cloud infrastructure using Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization.|
|Secure Virtualization with SELinux-SVirt||Running multiple virtual operating systems on one server creates a range of new security risks. SELinux, when combined with libvirt, allows system administrators to control the isolation of virtual machines with the use of mandatory access control. In this presentation Walsh will outline the security implications of virtualized environments and effective methods to deal with them.|
|The Merits and Architecture of KVM||KVM represents the next generation of open source virtualization, providing the foundation for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization. In this session Red Hat will introduce KVM covering the high level architecture, features and performance of KVM.|
|Government Track||Virtualization and Multi-Level Security||Red Hat is the open source leader who made security easy to use in Linux with SELinux. Red Hat is adding kernel level virtualization to Linux with KVM. Using these technologies together, we look forward to helping customers build a multi-level security solution using open source and commodity hardware. Red Hat is the leader in the open source community who made multi- level security possible on a general-purpose operating system. Red Hat has recently added virtualization, as well. Together, we believe it's now possible to run multiple virtual machines at multiple security levels using open source software and industry-standard hardware. We will discuss the technical details of this approach, the certification and accreditation concerns, and real-world applications in the public and private sector.|
|Complying with Security Initiatives in a Virtual World||Complying with security initiatives such as the Federal Information Security Management Act and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard are high priorities for many IT organizations. Complying with these initiatives is no easy task, and it is only getting more difficult as organizations virtualize more of their server infrastructure. Virtualization has many benefits, but increased server density also increases the complexity of the IT infrastructure, making complying with various security initiatives more difficult. In this session, learn how the combination of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager and Red Hat Network Satellite can make it easier to manage a virtualized Red Hat Enterprise Linux infrastructure and comply with these security initiatives.|
|Vertical Track||Building and Leveraging Compute Clouds with Red Hat Enterprise MRG||This presentation will cover the current state of Red Hat's cloud efforts and provide technical information that details how to build a cloud infrastructure based on Red Hat's technologies and blueprints. The presentation will also provide an overview of the capabilities and features Red Hat Enterprise Messaging, Real Time and Grid (MRG) and Red Hat Enterprise Linux virtualization jointly provide and how workload scheduling and virtualization can be used as an enterprise management platform.|
|Services Track||Red Hat Virtualization Training and Certification||Learn about Red Hat's newest training offerings around Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and Red Hat Certified Virtualization Administrator (RHCVA) certification. Hear why IT professionals should consider taking the course and what new skills will be taught, while exploring the interactive, hands-on nature of this new classroom offering. Also get full details on the new RHCVA certification and the value it holds for IT professionals.|
