How free software can be more expensive than paid alternatives

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.

  • Automation Doesn't Replace Your Job, It Strengthens Your Position Dec 5 2019 7:00 pm UTC 39 mins
    Ryan LaFevers, Federal Solutions Architect, Red Hat
    Just about every business and agency is developing an IT automation strategy to increase their time to market and decrease human error. However, not everyone is excited about this new direction. Some IT workers are concerned that “automation” is a code word for “job elimination.”

    In this session, we’ll examine why that fear is not a reality. In fact, automation is having quite the opposite effect by creating new roles and career paths in IT.

    Ansible automation has simply shifted the workload from manual, time consuming, and error-prone tasks to automated workflows that are faster, safer, and reusable. But we need experts in those things we automate. Come hear about how you can strengthen your value in the workforce by embracing automation rather than dismissing it.

  • Cloud and Container Security for AWS Dec 3 2019 6:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    Kiley Williams, Polyverse | Dan Juengst, Red Hat | Michael Ewald, Contino | Pawan Shankar, Sysdig
    With the widespread adoption of containers (Docker, Lambda, Kubernetes) and DevOps practices, IT teams are able to make their cloud application more portable and scalable than ever before. But as containers and DevOps have taken over, so too has the need for a new approach to security. Containers, workloads, and APIs need proper protection and it all boils down to your cloud security strategy.

    Tune into this live roundtable panel at AWS re:Invent as they discuss the following:

    - Workload attacks and why container orchestration tools such as Kubernetes might be at risk
    - Secure container deployment on AWS
    - Authentication and APIs: why they're important and best practices

  • Introducing Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform Nov 22 2019 7:00 pm UTC 53 mins
    Richard Henshall and Sean Cavanugh, Red Hat
    Automation technologies, like Ansible, are great for removing mundane tasks from IT staff's to-do lists and freeing them up to do more. But often automation efforts throughout an organization are siloed and 'islands of automation' pop up. What organizations really need is not an automation tool, but rather an automation platform to help them collaboratively scale automation, manage with policy and governance and provide the structure to collaborate across teams bring the power of automation to the entire IT organization. With the launch of Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform, organizations can do just that.

    Topics include:
    - Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform - Engine, Tower, Networking, and more, all in one.
    - A walk through the new Automation Analytics which gives enterprises the ability to view information about automation health, usage and performance across your enterprise.
    - An explanation of Ansible Content Collections - the new method of building and consuming Ansible content and why this is important to you.
    - A walk through of the new Automation Content Hub which is the place to discover, publish and manage your Ansible Collections
