Momentum Toward the Next-Gen Data Center: Red Hat Summit and Intel

For the first time, Red Hat Summit, the premier Open Source technology showcase, will take place on the West Coast, at San Francisco’s Moscone Center from April 14-17. It’s exciting to gather with the Open Source community of system administrators and enterprise architects to hear about the latest achievements in the Open Source tech universe.

Intel and Red Hat are key pioneers in bringing Open Source Linux to the enterprise, providing an established foundation for mission-critical workloads and cloud deployments based on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux* operating system and Intel® Architecture.

Doug Fisher, VP and general manager for Intel’s Software and Services Group in his keynote address on April 15, 9:30-10am will lay out Intel’s vision for a Software Defined Infrastructure, which encompasses compute, network, and storage domains and leads the way toward more agile and cost-effective data center architectures. Doug’s keynote will also focus on how Red Hat and Intel are addressing the architecture challenges posed by the explosive growth in data and connected devices.

Intel is also sponsoring a number of sessions and will participate in several panel discussions. Here are a few highlights – you won’t want to miss them:

  • Tuesday, April 15, 1:20-2:20pm: Empowering Enterprise IT. What’s next in data center efficiency and agility? Join Jonathan Donaldson, general manager of Intel’s Software Defined Infrastructure Group, for a discussion of how Intel and Red Hat are uniquely poised to take advantage of the changing face of IT infrastructure.

It will be a great show, to be sure. Please share your thoughts about Red Hat Summit and Intel!
