In Ansible 2.6 release we added network_cli/httpapi/netconf as first-class connection plugins within Ansible. Most of the network platforms supported by the community still continue to use the local connection type.
This talk will cover how to identify which connection plugin to use for a given network platform and do a deep dive into how to port existing modules from local connection to either nework_cli or httpapi or netconf for a particular network OS.
With decades of technical debt inadvertently accumulating over the years in banks, insurance companies, and capital markets firms, IT departments are finding themselves blocked in their ability to adopt new approaches for digital innovation.

Container platforms help enterprises become more nimble and increase responsiveness. As a result, containers are becoming a key component of digital transformation. In fact, large IT organizations are increasingly looking to develop innovative software applications using containers in their hybrid and multi cloud architectures. However, building these cloud-native applications using a DevOps methodology requires an agile and open infrastructure, one that is flexible, secure, and cost efficient.
An end-to-end, deployment ready solution is needed to allow organizations to more easily build cloud-native applications, deploy them, and manage workloads across hybrid or multiple clouds, helping businesses modernize IT infrastructure without sacrificing investments. During this webinar, we’ll discuss the architecture needed to build a hybrid cloud for DevOps using OpenShift on OpenStack in conjunction with public cloud.

A “Resource Module” is defined as a specific discrete network function mapped to a single Ansible module. This session will shed light on how resource module benefits Network Operators/Developers/Architect by returning common payload and tunable output to match the life cycle phase of the playbook, therefore building consistency and transparency. It introduces new state operations and facts integration. The module eases Brownfield device onboarding by returning facts in the similar shape as the respective resource module’s argspec.
In this presentation we will be doing deep dive with demonstration into the following:
- Why Resource Module.
- What a Resource module is.
- How a playbook with resource module and new states looks like.
- What common payload resource module returns.
- How facts is integrated with the module.
Let's talk about eliminating the frustration factor! In our fast paced industry, multi-cloud architectures face many different challenges and for some, the immutable flow is "utopic" and difficult to maintain. How about we resolve configuring & bootstrapping services without hindering deployment time?
Using reliable tools like Ansible & Packer we can add that needed attention to detail and configure our tasks the way we need them to perform. With a few tips, "baking" images can be easier than baking cupcakes!

Innovations like artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and high performance computing (HPC) present a vision of IT’s future, one where intelligent solutions can more effectively analyze and address evolving business needs. But this vision can be limited by current IT infrastructure, which can often require significant investments in order to enable new workloads. To answer this challenge, businesses need to deliver emerging workloads on a standardized and accessible infrastructure.
During this webinar, we’ll discuss the ways to help drive technologies and solutions for AI, ML, and HPC across different industries. You’ll walk away with an understanding of:
• How graphic processing units (GPUs) can tackle intense computing tasks
• How Red Hat OpenShift helps to facilitate deployments across the hybrid cloud, from on-premises servers to public cloud environments, enabling customers to migrate applications more seamlessly across IT footprints
• How OpenShift Operators are used for lifecycle management of GPUs

Organizations are increasingly looking to adopt hybrid and multi cloud architectures to give them the freedom to choose infrastructure based on market demands. To support these demands, businesses require the speed and agility that cloud computing models provide, along with a secure and controlled environment.
Strategy is key to establishing hybrid cloud infrastructure as a foundation for agility and digital business, but developing that strategy can be challenging. Important considerations include implementing security and compliance requirements; balancing the needs of developers, operators, and business lines; and integrating existing infrastructure and operational investments.
During this webinar, we’ll discuss the key considerations of successful hybrid and multi cloud adoption as well as an integrated approach to application and infrastructure platforms to have a successful hybrid cloud implementation.
To stay ahead of the evolving publishing industry, Scholastic realized they needed to adopt a microservices architecture leveraging containers after they migrated to Amazon Web Services (AWS). The team chose Red Hat OpenShift for the extensive support and level of innovation they were able to provide.
With OpenShift on AWS, Scholastic was able to implement a DevOps model to create a new set of online-based services to maintain competitive advantage in a rapidly shifting publishing world.
Join the upcoming webinar to learn how Scholastic maximized flexibility and improved their CI/CD pipeline by utilizing a microservices architecture running in containers.
Ansible transforms your silos of automation tools into one powerful interface using one industry-standard language. Through mergers, acquisitions, and consolidation, you may have inherited a handful of automation tools that don't talk to each other and there are no skills on the team to fix them. This open demo will show how to quickly port fragmented automation built on shell commands or open source tools onto a single Ansible framework. Through real world examples, we will demonstrate how to design an Ansible architecture, implement the right security controls, and write playbooks that anyone can update.

Security and reliability are often the most crucial, time-consuming challenges for organizations. Businesses are constantly putting strategic goals on hold to deal with unexpected challenges with system availability, stability, and data integrity. Traditional, manual efforts to isolate and remediate issues divert resources away from innovation.
To address risks before they affect business operations, organizations need vulnerability insights to characterize emerging exposures across a large portfolio and to predict and mitigate reliability risks before they occur. Add in auditing or compliance reporting requirements, and traditional approaches might fail to scale. Businesses need a new approach to address these exposures that minimizes the impact on innovation and productivity.
In this webinar, we'll discuss how to:
• Increase security and stability of systems by turning manual processes into automated workflows.
• Create a seamless, repeatable approach for maintaining Linux® systems at scale.
• Optimize your environment while mentoring your team on automations tuned to your needs.
