A new, application-centric IT architecture can prove challenging for the traditional packaging and deployment of a single, unified runtime enterprise operating system environment. Virtualization, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and other cloud technologies demand a more modular approach to Linux deployment based on optimized images and runtime environments controlled by the application.

The emergence of Docker and Linux containers in Red Hat solutions, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, and OpenShift, provides a new, higher-level approach to software packaging and deployment using modern IT architecture.
In this session, we’ll:
