  • Manage Thousands of Network Devices at One Time Sep 20 2019 6:00 pm UTC 46 mins
    Piyush Patel, Senior Architect, Network Automation Practice, Red Hat and Sean Sackowitz, Consultant, Red Hat
    Network management has remained largely the same for decades. Many network operations teams use a manual approach to network configuration and updates. However, this method is too slow and error prone to keep up with the needs of modern network infrastructures.

    Red Hat® Ansible® Automation allows network management across virtually any device platform via a secure shell (SSH) or an application programming interface (API). With Ansible Automation, you can scale with a global network infrastructure, giving you the ability to manage nearly all network devices at one time.

    Join this webinar to:

    •Learn challenges that you may face when starting network automation.
    •Develop a network automation architecture and strategic framework.
    •Hear about one customer's successful adoption of global network automation.

    Justin Goldsmith, Senior Architect, Red Hat & Sal Elrahal, Senior Architect, Red Hat
    Making operations more efficient is key to customer satisfaction internally and externally. While there are different approaches to making operations better, getting started can often be a daunting process.

    In this webinar, learn:

    • A foundational approach to streamline processes.
    • Tips for evaluating, prioritizing, and modernizing operations.
    • How to break down barriers between the front office and back office.

    Register now and start to generate net new operational efficiencies that decrease servicing friction.
  • How free software can be more expensive than paid alternatives Sep 18 2019 3:00 pm UTC 57 mins
    Al Gillen, Group Vice President, Software Development and Open Source, IDC
    Learn how paid subscriptions for open source software increase operational efficiency and reduce costs

    It's a common, unfortunate myth that community-supported, free, open source software is a better value, lower cost solution for running highly available, reliable, and critical workloads in data centers and cloud deployments. In the context of the larger investment, though, the reality is that the expense of commercially supported open source software is an investment that produces more secure platforms that deliver better availability, greater agility, and lower long-term operational costs.

    Join Al Gillen, IDC Vice President, as he reviews IDC research about the use of Red Hat® commercially supported, enterprise products and their cost and business benefits to customers.

  • RHEL 8 Adds Ansible Automation Focus to Red Hat Certified Engineer Learning Path Sep 10 2019 3:00 pm UTC 56 mins
    John Walter, Solutions Architect, Training and Certification, Red Hat
    One way that IT organizations are addressing the challenge of scaling infrastructure efficiently is by automating across different organizational functions. To be successful, system administrators need to understand more than how to deploy, configure, and manage an operating system—they also need to know how to automate functions and scale that automation.

    A change to the curriculum for Red Hat Certified Engineers incorporates a new course, Red Hat System Administration III: Linux Automation for Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 8, which focuses on the automation of Linux system administration tasks using Red Hat Ansible® Automation and shell scripting.

    Red Hat Training and Certification has also created a course for experienced system administrators interested in the new features of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8. This new course, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 New Features for Experienced Administrators, prepares operators, managers, principal system administrators, and other IT professionals to migrate to and deploy the new release.

    Join this webinar to learn about the Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) changes and a new course that can broaden your ability to administer Linux systems at the enterprise level.

    We'll cover:

    • An overview of the new features and benefits of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, including an expanded subscription with Red Hat Insights, a new release cycle, tools for containers, single variant with multiple use cases, and terminal session recording.
    • RHCE training and certifying on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 and how it differs from training on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 with an expanded focus on automation.
    • A new course that helps you better understand the latest features of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, including migration considerations, changes to core components, and configuring servers efficiently with Linux system roles.

    Mike Hansen, AVP, Open Telecommunications Strategies, Red Hat
    Edge computing can help businesses react faster to incoming data and provide a real-time (or close to it) experience by pushing compute resources closer to the data source and consumer.

    This can deliver more actionable insights faster, helping digital service providers gain competitive advantages in crowded markets.

    Join us to discuss:

    • The potential for increasing revenue and performance by evolving a telecommunications company to provide intelligent edge services.
    • The strategic value of building out that infrastructure with open technologies.
    • Red Hat’s services and solutions for expediting the path.

  • Building better Kubernetes applications with Operators & OpenShift Aug 27 2019 6:30 pm UTC 55 mins
    Josh Wood, Developer Advocate, Red Hat
    Kubernetes scales and manages stateless applications easily. Stateful applications require more work. Databases, caching systems, and file stores are harder to dynamically manage with data intact, and they often come with their own notion of clustering. Operators are Kubernetes agents that automatically deploy, scale, manage, back up, and even upgrade complex, stateful applications.

    This technical webinar will provide an update on the Operator pattern from Red Hat—adopted by many community projects like Rook, Prometheus, and others—and supported by a Framework and software development kit (SDK) that make it easier to automate your applications.

  • X by Orange: How to Build a Telco Operator from Scratch in Less Than 1 Year Recorded: Aug 15 2019 44 mins
    Ignacio Verona and David Sastre Medina, Red Hat
    X by Orange committed to launch a new, fully software-defined telco operator in Spain - from scratch. They wanted to “Uberize” the telco business by being completely cloud based and not owning a single piece of hardware. The goal was clear, but not easy: Streamline how a communications service provider works to launch new services in less than 90 days, provide an extremely simple user experience, and redefine the telco market. Also, the whole project, including hiring more than 120 people, developing the IT backend, and creating a sales, marketing, and go-to-market strategy, needed to be accomplished in 1 year. And they made it.

    In this session recorded at Red Hat Summit, Ignacio Verona and David Sastre Medina, Red Hat, discuss how X by Orange created its infrastructure using Red Hat OpenShift with an “everything is automated” deployment policy. Also, they show how Red Hat Consulting helped the company's goals become reality through extensive involvement - during the initial phases and on site.
Learn how Red Hat can help change the economics of IT.
