CloudForms Roadmap: Build & Manage Private & Hybrid IaaS Clouds — Building and deploying a cloud in today’s complex and security-conscious IT environment can be a daunting task for any organization. With Red Hat CloudForms, you can define, build, and deploy a hybrid cloud that manages resources across your private, physical, and virtual infrastructure as well as public cloud providers. Red Hat CloudForms delivers the next transition in “The Continuum of Systems Management” by providing systems management capabilities that transcend the class of resource and types of workload brought to the cloud. This session is designed to help you learn the value of clouds as well as give you a technical jump-start to managing your own hybrid cloud environment. During the session, you will see how CloudForms can benefit your organization. Red Hat’s Andy Smith and Hugh Brock will provide business and architectural overviews, as well as a brief demonstration.
