In February, Red Hat and Hortonworks announced a comprehensive open source initiative to deliver infrastructure solutions to bring 100-percent open source Hadoop to the hybrid cloud. OpenShift is the latest addition to the growing collaboration between Hortonworks and Red Hat and will enable customers to quickly and easily develop modern analytic applications in Hadoop.

With OpenShift and Hadoop, developers will have the ability to rapidly develop and deploy application stacks on Hortonworks Data Platform, enabling them to more easily exploit multiple data types, including: sensor and machine-generated data, server logs, social, clickstream, and geo-location data currently stored in Hadoop. Additionally, developers will be able to standardize their workflow and create repeatable processes for application delivery, streamlining application development while tapping into unprecedented insight and value from data stored in Hadoop.

"After announcing our expanded strategic alliance in February, we're excited to showcase the integration of Hortonworks Data Platform with Red Hat's OpenShift PaaS," said John Kreisa, vice president of strategic marketing, Hortonworks. "With more new data sources, enterprises need to uncover ways to rapidly develop applications that will help them derive more insight from their big data solutions. This latest advancement with Red Hat will provide our customers with improved tools to develop these data analytics applications that will drive businesses forward."

"As use cases for big data continue to grow, enterprise customers increasingly rely on big data-driven applications and analytics to power their business," said Chris Morgan, technical director, OpenShift ecosystem, Red Hat. "With OpenShift, our customers can start to expand development to next-generation use cases like the Internet-of-Things, where applications can tap into and make sense of sensor and machine-generated data, server logs, social, clickstream, geo-location data, and much more."

Hardware will never be more valuable than on the day it hits your loading dock. Each day new servers are not deployed to production the business is losing money. While Moore’s Law is typically cited to explain the exponential density growth of chips, a critical consequence of this is rapid depreciation of servers. The hardware for clustered systems (e.g., Hadoop, OpenStack) tends to be significant capital expenses. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mason Katz, CTO and co-founder of StackIQ, to discuss how infrastructure teams should be aware of the capitalization and depreciation model of these expenses to fully understand when and where automation is critical.
Over the last few years the healthcare ecosystem has revolved around innovations in Electronic Health Record (HER) based systems. This evolution has helped us achieve much desired interoperability. Now the focus is shifting to other equally important aspects – scalability and performance. While applying cloud computing environments to the EHR systems, a special consideration needs to be given to the cloud enablement of Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture (VistA), i.e., the largest single medical system in the United States.
In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mark Hinkle, Senior Director, Open Source Solutions at Citrix Systems Inc., will provide overview of the open source software that can be used to deploy and manage a cloud computing environment. He will include information on storage, networking(e.g., OpenDaylight) and compute virtualization (Xen, KVM, LXC) and the orchestration(Apache CloudStack, OpenStack) of the three to build their own cloud services. Speaker Bio: Mark Hinkle is the Senior Director, Open Source Solutions, at Citrix Systems Inc.

Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.
As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise) cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. NuoDB is involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO at NuoDB, Inc., will discuss the experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.
