FPGA workload acceleration using Red Hat Enterprise LinuxJon Masters, Red HatField programmable gate arrays (FGPAs)00a0and other programmable logic devices are rapidly gaining traction for emerging data analytics and processing workloads. Their power efficiency and performance advantages are numerous, but FPGAs have traditionally required extreme levels of technical knowledge to use. This is changing, thanks to industry standardization efforts. In this session, attendees will learn about FPGAs00a0and how they can be managed at scale using emerging efforts within the larger open source community, including OpenStack and Kubernetes orchestration.Modernizing your HPC applications to take full advantage of the open hybrid cloudSteven Carter, Red HatAdopting cloud technologies and principles in00a0the development and deployment of HPC applications can yield substantial benefits in portability and scientific throughput. This session covers the impediments to running existing HPC applications in the cloud and details how to avoid them. 00a0Dynamic API back-end selection based on real-time health checks00a0through 3Scale API management and OpenShiftTom Corcoran, Red HatVeer Muchandi, Red HatRed Hat OpenShift is a game-changing containerization platform that runs your application workloads as containers at scale. 3Scale by Red Hat is an API gateway solution. While applications APIs can be managed centrally by 3Scale, occasionally an API back-end application may become unavailable. We will demonstrate the implementation of a circuit breaker pattern using a polling mechanism into the 3scale configured API gateway solution running on OpenShift. We will show how to configure the API gateway with primary, secondary, and even tertiary back-end servers to handle any given 3Scale configured API request. The polling mechanism is configured to test the health of each primary (and, if necessary, secondary and tertiary) back end00a0every X miliseconds. This results in a recently proven-to-be-available back end serving each request. It improves application reliability and availability,00a0as well as latency, as there are order-of-magnitude fewer waits for API timeouts.Fast as lightning : NVMe and NVDIMM's Impact on your data centerTom Coughlan, Red HatThe future of storage is memory, and the future of memory is storage.

Advancements in application architectures, development processes, and storage have enabled organizations to take advantage of cloud benefits such as agility, elasticity, and scale-out across most layers of the infrastructure stack. But one key element - the database tier - has remained stubbornly difficult to modernize. Often, as organizations move toward container and cloud-based environments, they end up leaving their database, their SQL skillsets, expectations of transactional consistency, and sometimes even their precious data behind. To address this problem, a new class of database - the elastic SQL database - has emerged. These solutions combine the ACID guarantees and SQL interface on which applications rely, while also allowing dynamic capacity management, continuous availability, multi-datacenter operation, and radical operational simplicity. Join us to learn what makes an elastic SQL database an ideal solution for modern hybrid cloud applications. We'll demonstrate how you can take advantage of this technology to optimize your application for fast transactional responsiveness, continuous availability, and full-active database utilization, even across multiple clouds, data centers, or hybrid environments.Ariff Kassam, Vice president of Product, NuoDBChristina Wong, Director of Product Marketing, NuoDB

Many companies leverage the advantages of having a private cloud running on OpenStack: fewer costs, more control, no vendor lock-in. However, they also need to take care of operations and maintenance. OpenStack monitoring and troubleshooting are nontrivial tasks and require time, knowledge, and experience. Hundreds of log files are written by numerous services with several configuration files to countless virtual and physical machines - the possibilities for errors seem endless. Manual root cause analysis is like looking for the needle in the haystack. We're going to look at common problems in OpenStack environments, analyze their root cause, and discuss options for effective and efficient operations and troubleshooting.Dirk Wallerstorfer, Technology lead, OpenStack, Dy

In 2015 Monash University built the southern hemisphere's largest (known) Ceph cluster containing 5PB of raw storage across 40 Dell servers with 1100 OSDs. Today that cluster is at almost 7PB, and services a wide variety of research workloads from well over 1000 users across Monash's research intensive Clayton precinct. Prior to this large deployment we cut our teeth on Ceph on its home-turf - as block storage for OpenStack Cinder within Monash2019s node of the Nectar Research Cloud (a federation of distributed OpenStack cells) - that was in 2013 and since then we2019ve seen Ceph2019s popularity and community grow, with the first APAC Ceph Day hosted at Monash in late 2015. At Monash Red Hat Ceph Storage replaces legacy SAN storage for research computing, servicing use-cases from desktop CIFS file-shares to instrument data-capture and management, via HPC cluster home-directories and software libraries. The wide-variety of use-cases in the research space are what attracted us to Ceph in the first place - a storage unicorn that could service block, object and file workloads was a bandwagon we wanted to be on! Furthermore, the inherent difficulty in predicting the capacity and performance needs meant that a software-defined approach with no vendor lock-in was a key requirement for controlling costs and ensuring virtually unlimited scalability. In this talk we'll cover the high-level business and strategic challenges that led us to this solution and discuss how with first Inktank, then Red Hat2019s support we have tackled the challenges of architecting, deploying, and operating a cluster of this size (spoiler: it isn't that hard). We'll dive into some of the issues and pitfalls we've faced along the way and talk about some of the key use-cases and scientific data workflows that this infrastructure supports, for example, data capture, management and sharing from various microscopes across several facilities and platforms. To wrap up we'll look at our current progress in rolling out CephFS for production use-cases and detail how we managed to keep the whole thing in-service whilst it was physically moved to a new data-centre - this relocation is being planned now and will be complete by the time of the summit, so come along to find out whether there was a happy ending!

Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform uses source-to-image (S2I) to build and deploy applications from source code. S2I builder images take your source code as input, runs the build, converts your application source into a container image, stores it into a container registry, and then deploys it onto the platform to run. Since the containers are built on the platform itself, you have control over build steps to significantly reduce the chances of malicious processes running in the containers. In this lab, we'll teach you to create your own S2I builder images that run on OpenShift. This is an advanced 00a0lab that requires prior experience with OpenShift.
11:30 - 12:15
Testing a single piece of software is a proven practice - there's an extended ecosystem to ensure that a piece of software does what it's supposed to do in its sandbox. Testing a set of software components - a distribution - that are supposed to work together, and can be configured in a myriad of different ways, is something else. What every team wants when hitting their project's release button is a stable release that's been tested for all possible permutations and that doesn't break their setup. Enter: Distributed Continuous Integration (DCI). The more users, partners, and customers there are, the more configurations are tested, and the stronger the product stability gets. In this session, you'll learn about the elements of DCI, and how it's been used to provide feedback for a project as complex as OpenStack. We'll also look at how partners and customers are using DCI for completely different architectures and deployment use cases.

Cost efficiency and automation are at the heart of the IT industry. As data persistence is a critical part of most IT services, Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) has become a desirable way to simplify and standardize database systems for easier management and rapid service provisioning. Red Hat OpenShift can solve this problem as an abstraction layer for deploying massive databases in multiple datacenters, potentially owned by different cloud providers and using different Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions. A project team of Amadeus, Couchbase and Red Hat staff have deployed a Couchbase cluster in OpenShift using PetSets for the first time. In this session, you2019ll learn:How to deploy a Couchbase cluster in OpenShift with a PetSet.How we solved the main technical challenges.Details about the performance of Couchbase running in OpenShift.How Amadeus plans to use OpenShift to industrialize its main datastores.
As organizations mature in their approach to mobile strategy, more emphasis on calculating ROI, business value, and the cost of mobility emerges. Not to be confused with traditional monolithic enterprise application projects, mobile applications are highly iterative in their development and are more acutely focused on addressing a very targeted use case with a strong demand for faster time to market. Due to the transformative potential of mobility, the value of an app can often be intangible or difficult to quantify upfront and often cost factors are over-simplified in terms of developer time and effort. While ROI is difficult to calculate, reasonable estimates are possible. This presentation highlights:2022Mobile: Disrupting technology, business and ROI measurement2022Beyond UI: A breakdown of the true costs of mobility2022Mobile app development: When a Mobile app development platform makes sense2022Example use case scenario and cost breakdown2022Summary: ROI is more than just mob
In this session, we'll identify the 10 most common layers in a typical container deployment, and the best ways to build security into each layer. These layers include: 1) container host: Multi-tenancy at the container layer, 2) content security container registries, and secure access to container images, 3) build process controlling what can be deployed with a cluster container platform authentication and authorization, 4) networking isolation, 5) attached storage API management, 6) endpoint security, 7) SSO roles, 8) access management in a cluster federation. Increasingly complicated applications and demands for faster development are putting even more pressure on infrastructure, IT teams, and processes. It's more important than ever to have the right technologies in place. Containers deliver00a0applications faster and scale them more rapidly. The advantages are numerous but can only be realized if the containers and their deployment include strong security. We'll dive into how to manage these security layers for yourself, or deploy a container platform that includes built-in security features. We'll use Red Hat00a0OpenShift Container Platform to illustrate how to deliver continuous security for containers.

Based on this real world experience, we will take a balanced look at Microservices - at some of the common misconceptions about Microservices and what the actual reality of running and managing a microservices architecture is like.From here, we will then dive into the real benefits of microservices - when you should consider using them and how to ensure that you do not fall into the many pitfalls associated with moving to a Microservices architecture.
Security is crucial for any application, but implementation can be difficult and it is often neglected, poorly implemented, and intrusive in the code. But lately, security servers such as Auth0 have appeared that outsource and delegate all authentication and authorization aspects. One of the most promising solutions is KeyCloak, an open source, flexible solution that is easy to deploy and adapt in its own infrastructure. In this session, I2019ll use live coding to show how to deploy KeyCloak progressively and demonstrate all aspects of KeyCloak, including securing a Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) app, a Node.js microservice, an AngularJS web app, or even a mobile app. I2019ll show how to integrate social logins, enable Single Sign On (SSO), and how to bridge to existing identity providers, such as Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and Microsoft Active Directory.
Compliance is often the first question for anyone implementing Red Hat OpenShift but also the hardest to answer. An even harder question to answer is how to implement identity management compliance for OpenShift, but the question is really about bridging the gap between people who write compliance requirements, people who audit those requirements, and people who implement the technology.In this session, targeted to security specialists responsible for reviewing OpenShift deployments and those trying to build a compliant solution with OpenShift, I2019ll provide a map to help explain what compliance really means, how OpenShift is deployed, and how OpenShift technology is implemented to meet compliance requirements, including examples from National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-53, NIST 800-63 and the Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS), mapped to a technology implementation.

Eclipse Vert.x is a toolkit to create reactive distributed and polyglot applications on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). It takes the JVM to new levels of performance, yet has a small API. It lets you build scalable, microservice-based applications transparently distributed and packaged as a single jar file. This simplicity makes deploying and managing Vert.x applications on OpenShift a breeze. Upload your jar and Vert.x connects all your pods and services. That's not all, the application you're developing with Vert.x is "reactive": It's responsive, elastic, resilient, uses asynchronous message-passing saving resources, and handles a huge level of concurrency. How does that work on OpenShift?In this session, you'll see how the combination of Vert.x and OpenShift paves a new way to build and manage reactive systems. You'll see several examples and a demonstration of how Vert.x simplifies not only development, but thanks to OpenShift, the deployment and management of your distributed system. Everything you need will be covered in this session: service discovery, resilience pattern, rolling updates, monitoring, and metrics. This is a "slide-less" session consisting of pure, live coding.

While automation of the Continuous Delivery pipeline is one important component of DevOps, the other critical component is the continuous feedback loop. Organizations tried to solve this problem by bringing together metrics from various tools across the pipeline, but the lack of context made these metrics less optimal and, many times, resulted in creating silos of key metrics. However, there is a measuring and monitoring approach around Value Streams that is addressing the meaningful metrics gap. Come learn and see how one can leverage Value Streams to enable continuous monitoring and feedback across applications and services.Eric Robertson,00a0Vice president, DevOps Product Engineering & Management, CollabN

Recognizing important patterns in data, as they occur in real time, is critical. With complex event processing (CEP), organizations can recognize, understand, and react to business events faster by processing large volumes of inbound data. This includes data from social networks, remote sensor readings, online-gaming player events, credit card transactions, and location data from delivery vehicles. Critical CEP workloads require solutions that tolerate the failure of one or more processing nodes, while easily scaling to handle growing data volumes. They must process a high volume, velocity, and variety of inbound data, infer the context, and take appropriate action in real time while adhering to stringent availability and scalability service level agreements. In this lab, you'll implement a simple rule-based, event-based application on a cluster of distributed nodes. You'll see your events and rules scale up and down thanks to HACEP, which is the combination of Red Hat JBoss BRMS superpowered with Red Hat JBoss Data Grid.
Configuring distributed systems can be difficult. Fortunately, automation tools such as Ansible are available to help manage even the most complex environments. In this lab, you'll take the reigns of your own cluster and experience firsthand how Ansible can be used to install, configure, and maintain OpenShift to support mission-critical systems. Once you install Red Hat OpenShift, you'll learn how to diagnose, troubleshoot, and resolve common platform issues. Managing the platform doesn't stop once the installation is complete. You'll use Ansible to simplify ongoing maintenance and to make worry-free platform upgrades, all facilitated in an automated fashion. Finally, the use of centralized management systems will be introduced into the environment in order to demonstrate its importance and to provide a streamlined experience for both platform maintainers and users.

HMM (Heteregeneous Memory Management) is the name of an upcoming Linux kernel patchset, authored by Red Hat's Jerome Glisse. The patchset enables graphics processing unit (GPU) programmers (CUDA programmers, for example) to write code that treats "a pointer as a pointer": the same pointer values can be used in both central processing unit (CPU) and GPU code. This significantly simplifies both writing new CUDA programs00a0and porting older C/C++ (or even Fortran) programs to use GPU acceleration. In other words, malloc(3) can be called to allocate a buffer on the CPU, and that buffer's address can be passed to a CUDA kernel that runs on the GPU. HMM migrates the pages automatically. This session will cover the improved programming model,00a0some bandwidth and tuning considerations,00a0and possibly kernel implementation details (upon request, if time allows).

NuoDB: Database considerations for the hybrid cloud
NuoDB: Database considerations for the hybrid cloud (15:00 - 15:20)

About the session

Advancements in application architectures, development processes, and storage have enabled organizations to take advantage of cloud benefits such as agility, elasticity, and scale-out across most layers of the infrastructure stack. But one key element - the database tier - has remained stubbornly difficult to modernize. Often, as organizations move toward container and cloud-based environments, they end up leaving their database, their SQL skillsets, expectations of transactional consistency, and sometimes even their precious data behind. To address this problem, a new class of database - the elastic SQL database - has emerged. These solutions combine the ACID guarantees and SQL interface on which applications rely, while also allowing dynamic capacity management, continuous availability, multi-datacenter operation, and radical operational simplicity. Join us to learn what makes an elastic SQL database an ideal solution for modern hybrid cloud applications. We'll demonstrate how you can take advantage of this technology to optimize your application for fast transactional responsiveness, continuous availability, and full-active database utilization, even across multiple clouds, data centers, or hybrid environments.Ariff Kassam, Vice president of Product, NuoDBChristina Wong, Director of Product Marketing, NuoDB

Dynatrace: Monitoring OpenStack? Piece of cake!
Dynatrace: Monitoring OpenStack? Piece of cake! (17:15 - 17:35)

About the session

Many companies leverage the advantages of having a private cloud running on OpenStack: fewer costs, more control, no vendor lock-in. However, they also need to take care of operations and maintenance. OpenStack monitoring and troubleshooting are nontrivial tasks and require time, knowledge, and experience. Hundreds of log files are written by numerous services with several configuration files to countless virtual and physical machines - the possibilities for errors seem endless. Manual root cause analysis is like looking for the needle in the haystack. We're going to look at common problems in OpenStack environments, analyze their root cause, and discuss options for effective and efficient operations and troubleshooting.Dirk Wallerstorfer, Technology lead, OpenStack, Dy

While applications APIs can be managed centrally by 3Scale, occasionally an API back-end application may become unavailable. We will demonstrate the implementation of a circuit breaker pattern using a polling mechanism into the 3scale configured API gateway solution running on OpenShift. We will show how to configure the API gateway with primary, secondary, and even tertiary back-end servers to handle any given 3Scale configured API request. The polling mechanism is configured to test the health of each primary (and, if necessary, secondary and tertiary) back end00a0every X miliseconds. This results in a recently proven-to-be-available back end serving each request. It improves application reliability and availability,00a0as well as latency, as there are order-of-magnitude fewer waits for API timeouts.Fast as lightning : NVMe and NVDIMM's Impact on your data centerTom Coughlan, Red HatThe future of storage is memory, and the future of memory is storage.

Deterministic storage performance: 'The AWS way' for capacity-based QoS with OpenStack and Ceph (11:30 - 12:15)

About the session

Managing storage quality of service is a hot topic among operators of OpenStack systems. Tenants demand that their private cloud environments provide familiar public cloud modalities, including the ability to provision deterministic storage performance. This talk will detail how Ceph storage pools can be combined with Cinder Volume Types to emulate Amazon2019s Magnetic and Provisioned IOPS Elastic Block Store (EBS). Performance graphs will detail when size based limits, or fixed limits are more appropriate, depending on the type of storage media used in the underlying Ceph pool.

Decision Modelling and Notation (DMN) 101
Decision Modelling and Notation (DMN) 101 (15:30 - 16:15)

About the session

The Decision Modelling and Notation (DMN) is an OMG standard for modelling and execution of decision services, either standalone or integrated with Business Processes using BPMN (Business Process Model and Notation, its sibling standard). DMN defines a higher level graphical notation for decision services (Decision Requirements Diagram) and user friendly notation for decisions with support for Decision Tables and a high level expression language called FEEL. It also defines a meta model and runtime semantics that allow the model to be fully executed, without the need for any mapping or intermediate model. During this presentation, attendees will learn what DMN is and how to use it to create decision services for real world use cases. This includes an overview of the Decision Requirements Diagram, Decision Tables, Boxed expressions, among other features. Attendees will also learn about how the Red Hat BRMS product supports the specification, and how to use it to provision their services in the cloud.
