Summit 2022

As Red Hat Summit 2022 approaches, we are excited to announce that our session, The Red Hat cloud way: Event-driven, serverless, distributed cloud services to support modern apps, will be part of the developer track.

This session will explore Red Hat Cloud Services and Red Hat Application Services to provide a walkthrough of Red Hat's cloud strategy with application development and cloud-native models.

We'll go on a journey of developing a microservices-based application using Red Hat OpenShift Streams for Apache Kafka and Developer Sandbox for OpenShift to support serverless, event-driven, on-demand workloads, which could be be used in IoT, edge computing, and big data. The process involves four simple steps, illustrated in Figure 1:

  1. Create a Kafka cluster in the cloud. With OpenShift Streams for Apache Kafka, you get a new cloud-based Kafka instance in less than three minutes. You can try it at no cost for 48 hours.
  2. Get your dev environment in the cloud. With Developer Sandbox for OpenShift, you get a private OpenShift environment in a shared, multi-tenant OpenShift cluster that is pre-configured with a set of developer tools. You can try it for free for 30 days and renew at no cost.
  3. Create and connect your apps: Create apps easily with the OpenShift web console and Developer Tools. The web console helps you create apps from existing container images, source code, a Helm chart, or a JAR file. With the Service Binding Operator, you can connect objects like databases of Kafka clusters with a simplified and Kubernetes-native procedure.
  4. React to events with serverless auto-scaling patterns. Scale up your apps proportionally to your business needs and optimize resource consumption with Red Hat OpenShift Serverless. Connect Kafka events, databases, or external sources to highly-available, event-driven on-demand scenarios.
