Join Us: Respond to shifting market demands with SDN, NFV and DevOps

Growth in mobility, big data and of course, IoT (Gartner forecasts there’ll be 8.4 billion Internet connected devices in use worldwide in 2017!), are driving telcos to explore and invest in things like software-define networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), and DevOps to remain competitive and grow market share. Join us at Red Hat Summit this week where we’ll be sharing information on tools to support your NFV applications and a design approach to bridge DevOps and business automation in two sessions on Tuesday.

And after Tuesday’s sessions, don’t miss our telco networking cocktail on Tuesday evening from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at Whiskey Priest, sponsored by Red Hat and Intel. Connect with Red Hat telecom executives, experts, partners, and peers at Boston Seaport District’s big and boisterous Irish bar. You’ll enjoy breathtaking city views on the rooftop bar and a vast selection of whiskeys and pub fare.

In our session on Hyper-converged OpenStack and Ceph, Red Hat’s John Fulton, senior software engineer, and Andrew Theurer, senior principal software engineer, will discuss hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI). HCI deployments appeal to telco service companies interested in putting dense low footprint OpenStack clusters on the edge of their network for NFV applications.

Red Hat OpenStack Platform 10 director’s composability features enable Red Hat OpenStack Platform and Red Hat Ceph Storage deployments to run both Ceph object storage device (OSD) and Nova compute services on the same server as an HCI.

The session will be held on Tuesday, May 2, from 11:30 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. in room 151A, and will cover questions like: How do these systems handle NFV workloads, how should they be tuned, and how should director be used to automate such deployments? John and Andrew will also share workload testing results.

Afterward, stick around for our 3:30 – 4:15 p.m. session in the Services Showcase on a design approach to bridge DevOps and business automation. In the session, David Bush, senior consultant for Red Hat and Ron Murhammer, Red Hat’s business automation practice lead, will show you how to get the most out of your business process management (BPM) implementation.

In today’s market, businesses are increasingly challenged to merge legacy tooling, systems, process, and skills with the hallmarks of a seemingly elusive DevOps culture. And BPM is no exception. BPM and business rules management systems (BRMS) provide a lightweight, modular platform that can be tailored for your organizational structure and technical architecture.

In this interactive session, learn about a proven design approach that adds rigorous engineering practices to BPM while eliminating additional risk so businesses can codify business logic in a way that ensures the higher quality, faster time to market, and lower, predictable cost associated with modern software development.
