Red Hat, a leader in open-source software solutions, is ready for its annual conference, the Red Summit, starting on 23 May in Boston. Attendees can expect keynotes from industry leaders, tech demos, training, and more.
This year’s summit will be a busy affair with the inclusion of the AnsibleFest Keynote and party. The company has recently released the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 9.2 and is set to unveil the RHEL 8.8 in the near future.
It has also added Ansible system roles that it claimed simplify administration, including up-to-date journald RHEL, Podman RHEL, ad_integration RHEL, Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux), Microsoft SQL Server, and Cockpit RHEL system roles, which can have notable applications in hybrid cloud operations.
The keynotes will be accessible virtually as well on the company’s YouTube, Twitter, and LinkedIn accounts. The event will cover sessions on IT infrastructure, AI/ML, edge, application development, developer experience, automation, and cloud.
