  • Formulating Cloud Strategy in the Hybrid Multi-Cloud Era Jul 20 2021 3:00 pm UTC 53 mins
    Carl Lehmann, 451 Research and Dan Juengst, Sr., Red Hat
    It used to be that IT planners spent little time considering where their workloads will run. The choices were straightforward – on-premises data centers, co-location facilities or with managed services providers. Today, nearly all enterprises also manage hybrid multi-clouds – a combination of Software-, Infrastructure- and Platform-as-a-Service (SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS) execution venues. Each have unique operational, performance and economic characteristics that need to be considered when deploying workloads.

    In this Webinar Carl Lehmann, Senior Research Analyst with 451 Research, and Dan Juengst, Senior Principal Technology Evangelist with Red Hat, will discuss how industry leading enterprises determine the best execution venues for their workloads by discussing:

    - Market and technology trends that influence workload, data center and cloud strategy
    - How to evaluate the characteristics of various workloads and execution venues
    - How to manage workloads across on-premises, third-party, and hybrid multi-cloud environments

    Attendees will learn how to formulate an IT strategy that can be used to guide the decision criteria needed for placing workloads on their best execution venues, and enable the migration and ongoing management of workloads across a hybrid multi-cloud enterprise architecture.

    Carl Lehmann, Sr. Research Analyst, 451 Research | S&P Global Market Intelligence

  • The pitfalls—and how to avoid them—of hybrid multicloud architectures Jul 14 2021 6:00 pm UTC 31 mins
    Jon Benedcit, Marty Wesley, Bradford Hinson, and Jeffrey Winn @ Red Hat
    As organizations move to hybrid multi-cloud architectures, they are facing greater challenges related to complexity, variability, security, and management. While cloud architectures bring technological improvements, they rarely simplify your overall IT environment, and they don’t address the training and process changes associated with their adoption. In this session, hear how Red Hat can help you achieve a consistent IT environment across multiple clouds, delivering a more efficient and more secure IT architecture.

    *This is a recording from Red Hat’s Summit 2021 Virtual Experience - April 27-28, 2021. The panel of experts answered live questions related to the pitfalls and solutions of hybrid multi-cloud architectures.

  • Automating security in DevOps environments Jul 8 2021 4:00 pm UTC 39 mins
    Craig Brandt, Senior Solution Architect, Red Hat
    During this webinar, we will share the story of the fictitious JuiceShop Org and its journey to deploy the JuiceShop app. We will illustrate how JuiceShop Dev and Ops teams collaborated to automate app builds, instance provisioning, load-balancer configuration, and app deployment using Red Hat® Ansible® Automation Platform and a continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline.

  • Modernizing virtualization with Kubernetes Jul 6 2021 6:00 pm UTC 33 mins
    Andrew Sullivan, Senior Principal Technical Marketing Manager, Cloud Platforms, Red Hat
    Virtualization has been the de facto standard for most applications for over a decade at this point. There have been many incremental improvements to the management methodologies and functionality for the infrastructure and applications, but there has not been a significant change to how VMs are managed and consumed since their widespread adoption in the datacenter.

    Red Hat® OpenShift® virtualization modernizes virtualization infrastructure, application management, and application consumption by bringing it natively into the Kubernetes paradigm. In this session we will explore virtualization as a native component of Kubernetes and learn how to deploy and consume virtualized applications with the same simplicity as containerized applications.
  • Building Kubernete Operators using Ansible Jun 30 2021 6:00 pm UTC 31 mins
    Jason Dobies, Developer Advocate
    Operators simplify the deployment and management of complex, stateful applications on Kubernetes. One option for writing them is to have knowledge of the language Go and expertise with the internals of Kubernetes. But, there's an alternative to that with a significantly lower barrier to entry. The Operator SDK, one component of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) Operator Framework, natively supports building Operators that can run Ansible Playbooks, making it easier for Operator development and integrating seamlessly with existing Ansible workflows and tooling.

  • Data Resilience for Kubernetes Jun 17 2021 6:00 pm UTC 41 mins
    Naveen Chhabra, Forrester | Pete Brey, Red Hat | Venkat Kolli, Red Hat
    Increasingly, organizations are realizing Kubernetes can deliver agility and efficiency benefits for not only their application development but also for their critical enterprise applications running in production. However, with this trend comes additional key considerations which must be addressed. One of the most significant of these concerns is data resiliency for not just the applications themselves, but also the data they produce and consume, as well as the underlying Kubernetes infrastructure.

    Attendees will learn about these trends and what the key considerations are as they plan to deploy their enterprise applications on Kubernetes in production. Specifically, we will look at data protection approaches ranging from snapshots, clones, backup, and recovery to address the requirements for data resilience for Kubernetes applications. In addition to these approaches, we’ll also discuss how to handle Kubernetes-unique namespaces, application contexts, and cluster configuration in a manner which allows organizations to protect their existing data protection infrastructure investments.

    Presenters:
    Naveen Chhabra, Senior Analyst, Forrester
    Pete Brey, Senior Principal Product Marketing Manager, Cloud Storage & Data Services Business Unit, Red Hat
    Venkat Kolli, Product Management Director, Cloud Storage & Data Services Business Unit, Red Hat

  • The impact of open source automation on innovation Recorded: May 27 2021 30 mins
    Glenn O'Donnell VP, Research Director, Forrester.
    Automation is at the core of firms’ technology strategies across all verticals and industries; effective businesses need technology that adapts and scales quickly, reliably, and economically. Getting started with simple, tactical automation software to begin automating processes is easy, but using it at scale and working on higher value automation that spans teams, geographies, and across management area presents challenges. What's more, leadership teams and implementers often don't see eye to eye, causing struggles from prioritization through implementation. Join us and guest speaker Glenn O'Donnell from Forrester to explore how leadership teams and implementers are misaligned, how to improve this alignment, and what benefits may be achieved by doing so.
