Gluster for Sysadmins - Dustin Black, Red Hat
In this session for administrators of all skill levels, you’ll get a deep technical dive into Red Hat Storage Server and GlusterFS administration.

We’ll start with the basics of what scale-out storage is, and learn about the unique implementation of Red Hat Storage Server and its advantages over legacy and competing technologies. From the basic knowledge and design principles, we’ll move to a live start-to-finish demonstration. Your experience will include things like building a cluster, allocating resources, creating and modifying volumes of different types, and performing tuning basics. (And more!)

Those new to the scale-out product will leave this session with the knowledge and confidence to set up their first Red Hat Storage Server environment. Experienced administrators will sharpen their skills and gain insights into the newest features. IT executives and managers will gain a valuable overview to help fuel the drive for next-generation infrastructures.

Please note, this is a two-part tutorial.

Higher Education in the Open Ecosystem: Exemplary Projects and People - Deborah Bryant, Red Hat
With so many talented and self-taught developers in the community, it's not hard to loose track of the notion that higher education plays a critical role in the open source ecosytem on two fronts; graduating more students with essential information in free and open source software in multiple domains (engineering and business) as well as with research to help all players strengthen their respective contributions.

What are the successful educational programs in place today that teach open source?  What are the communities that surround those interests? What can industry do to contribute to and benefit from academic resources? Deb Bryant will provide a nutshell tour of exemplary programs, related organizations, and potential research topics - bring your list too and join the discussion.

Making Sense of Microservices: From Cattle to Bacteria - Brian Proffitt, Red Hat
The world of IT is rapidly fracturing into many sub-components... from the large bare-metal server farms to the microservices provided by containers, the size of the tools we are using are becoming increasingly smaller. But, like classical physics, which went from Newtonian to Einsteinian to Quantum over the course of the 20th Century, are the advances we are making always going to have applications in the everyday IT shop? Brian Proffitt will assert that this is possible, but we all may have to fundamentlly change the way we think about IT. And DevOps may be just the beginning.

Containers: Don't Skeu Them Up. Use Microservices Instead. - Goron Haff & William Henry, Red Hat
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn't actually need them. But the basic idea is far broader. For example, containers aren't legacy virtualization with a new spin. They're part and parcel of a new platform for cloud apps including containerized operating systems like Project Atomic, container packaging systems like Docker, container orchestration like Kubernetes and Mesos, DevOps continuous integration and deployment practices, microservices architectures, "cattle" workloads, software-defined everything, management across hybrid infrastructures, and pervasive open source.

In this session, Red Hat's Gordon Haff and William Henry will discuss how containers can be most effectively deployed together with these new technologies and approaches -- including the resource management of large clusters with diverse workloads -- rather than mimicking legacy sever virtualization workflows and architectures.
