SUSE - 25 years of SUSE

SUSE has been successful in delivering an enterprise grade Linux operating system for nearly 25 years. The mission that we defined for ourselves 25 years ago was simple: Enable customers to deploy an operating system that was open and secure while also providing the support to ensure they could meet enterprise level SLAs. Our continued success over that 25 year period has proven that our model works and we remain committed to the basic ideals of delivering open and secure solutions even as we expand into new offerings.

The future of persistent databases in an agile world (EnterpriseDB)

'On how to fit a square peg into a round hole'
Extract: data is the lifeblood of an organisation and keeping data consistent and reliably available a persistent need for any organisation. The world of Agile, Dev/Ops and containerisation was never meant for persistent workloads such as the central database stores now housed in classic RDBMS stores. This talk goes into the the challenges, opportunities and the developments on both sides of this equation by taking you through the past, present and future developments. The aim is to take away the sense of dread that this brave new world may cause to those running a business or responsible for RDBMS in your organisation, at least if you are running (EDB) Postgres, and to give you insight into what the coming years will bring.

Red Hat - A look at a container platform: what's in the box

Many already have some familiarity with containers, and maybe even with Kubernetes. But what's the difference between those and a container platform? In this session the goal is to look at OpenShift, Red Hat's container platform based on Kubernetes. We see what it's made out of, what makes it tick, and what the future of OpenShift & Kubernetes holds.
