In this session, attendees will explore the new features of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 performance. John Shakshober (Shak) will share the scalability optimizations for larger SMP systems, > 1TB of memory, new transparent hugepage support, multi-q network performance of 10Gbit and Infiniband, and KVM enhancements that went into Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Shak will also share benchmark data from industry standard workloads using common applications such as database servers, Java engines, and various financial applications on the latest Intel and AMD x86_64 hardware.
Companies are well aware of the benefits of virtualization and cloud computing, but many are reluctant to embrace the public clould because they don't have a way to assess and ensure security. This 36 page report highlights some of the many ways that security technologies and services - from silicon to sign-on are evolving to provide the visibility and control needed to deploy workloads flexibility in the evolving datacenter, which spans both private and public clouds.
"12-page white paper on workload placement:
In this Frost & Sullivan report, they look at how the hybrid environment calls for a new way of thinking about “application performance.” They show how application performance is impacted by choice of deployment model (on premises and in the public cloud). They look at workloads whose performance requirements make them candidates for on-premises deployment, and identify the link between “optimal performance” and achievement of business goals.
Finally, they offer suggestions for getting started with your workload assessment process. "
