Cloud Infrastructure Matters: Virtualization, Linux and more
Virtualization is the foundational technology for cloud computing, but it is also an important technology in its own right for achieving operation efficiencies in a modern datacenter. Virtualization helps organizations expand their IT capabilities and simultaneously lower capital and operational costs. We will explore key functionality and use cases for server and desktop virtualization. We will also discuss how you can build a virtualization architecture using Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, and lay the groundwork for both internal and external Clouds using Red Hat technologies.

PaaS, Present and Future: The Essentials for Building, Hosting, Integrating & Managing JBoss Applications in the Cloud
The ability to develop applications, seamlessly integrate them with existing heterogeneous environments and deploy them to a cloud infrastructure is what makes Platform as a Service (PaaS) solutions so attractive. But, the benefits of rapid time to market, increased flexibility and lower costs are not guaranteed. How you design and implement the solution is critical.
Many PaaS offerings introduce a new, proprietary application development environment. Others deliver a PaaS based only on simple developer frameworks, limiting choice and application portability. When evaluating offerings, it’s important to consider portability and interoperability in both development and deployment, support for the programming models you choose to employ, the breadth of the middleware reference architecture, and the availability of tools to assist you throughout the entire application life cycle – from development through management.
In this session we’ll cover the essential requirements for Platform as a Service, and discuss how you can leverage Red Hat’s JBoss Enterprise Middleware today to build, host, integrate and manage applications in public or private clouds.
12.00pm – 12.30pm
