Red Hat Developer Program

Steve Dietch keynote: Build and manage clouds (2011 Red Hat Summit & JBoss World)

Steve Dietch, vice president of marketing for cloud solutions and infrastructure at HP, gives a talk at the 2011 Red Hat Summit and JBossWorld. Dietch speaks in-depth about today's popular technology--cloud. He talks about how cloud adoption has grown faster than IT departments have expected, what issues this creates, and what methods can help customers adapt. He discusses the ways in which cloud technology can be applied--today and going forward--and how public, private, and hybrid approaches can be combined to deliver unified services that allow for a wide range of customer choice--in applications, in hypervisor, and in hardware. He also addresses some of the concerns surrounding this rapid adoption, and how a complete, open, and integrated system can help enterprises avoid cloud sprawl and vendor lock-in, while gaining value, improving cost, and increasing performance and flexibility. Dietch also talks extensively about the partnership between Red Hat and HP and the enterprise offerings they develop and support collaboratively and completely.
