The data center is changing, and the role of server operating systems is evolving along with it. CentOS is taking on the challenge of becoming a platform for innovation that enables next-generation services to meet the needs of the data center today and tomorrow.
We'll look at how CentOS is embracing special interest groups (SIGs) and variants, in addition to its standard offerings, to meet those needs.

IT managers are chomping at the bit at the ease of use found with VMs, as well as the cost savings. They can build a superior architecture with hundreds of VMs, all ready to run any application. The question on their minds now is, should they build a virtual data center that mirrors the physical one they might already have, or migrate straight to the cloud, with all of its elasticity and software-defined features?
As shiny and new as the cloud is, a case can be made that for the most part, business processes can be easily accomodated with cost-saving virtual data centers without the software-defined features of the cloud. With centralized management tools like oVirt leading the way to fast, efficient and low-cost VM deployment,virtual data centers can be just the solution many organiations need now--and the foundation for cloud-based growth later.
Learn how to set up OpenShift on your Infrastructure - whether it is cloudy, bare-metal, OpenStack, RHEL, Fedora, or now even on CentOS-based. Deploy and configure your platform using our Puppet-based oo-installer, OpenStact Heat templates, or even using Ansible (in 15 minutes or less)!

Most conversations around hybrid cloud involves forklifting entire VMs
between cloud providers, internal or external. The forklift approach is
often used because VMs are special entities, that cannot be easily
recreated. But forklifting is actually symptomatic of a lack of automation
throughout the organization, and is used to avoid the tough conversations
around "Automating All the Things!" Automation is needed to achieve any
form of hybrid cloud, and this talk will lay the groundwork for getting

You've heard all about how the practice of DevOps helps your business be more efficient: faster insights into your systems and data, better processes and continuous improvement. What may be far more interesting about the practice of DevOps, however, is not the impact on your workflows, but on all the folks at your business doing the actual work.
In this presentation, Leslie Hawthorn will cover some highlights of DevOps processes, all through the lens of taking a DevOps oriented approach to people management. Attendees will leave this talk with a better understanding of how to make themselves, and their employees and co-workers most successful.
As the prominent open-source data center virtualization solution,
oVirt has many features that help you virtualize data center and
cloud offerings. Sometimes a feature might be needed to extends
oVirt's capabilities, in order to integrate with configuration and
other systems, including internal systems. In such cases the
main project usually does not have a way to do that, but oVirt
allows you to do that yourself.
Doron Fediuck will show you how you can extend oVirt's
capabilities to your needs throughout the oVirt stack. See the
integration potential with real examples such as nagios and
other systems. Administrators, integrators and developers are
welcome to join us in this session to learn how you can
leverage oVirt to suit your needs.
