Red Hat Summit

Videos: Red Hat Summit 2011

| |

Red Hat held their annual Red Hat Summit and JBoss World conferences in Boston from May 3-6, 2011. I've yet to be able to attend a Red Hat Summit but I do search the web for information and videos from it.

Red Hat announced a number of new developments including OpenShift (Platform as a Service) and CloudForms (Infrastructure as a Service). Basically Red Hat continues to sponsor development on a large number of open source projects and bundles them together into more comprehensive solutions. I haven't yet done enough reading to speak intelligently about either of those... but give me some time... although they do seem primarily oriented towards the "enterprisey" folks.

The thread that runs through most of the videos is that yeah, the "CLOUD" is a big bunch of hype these days... so much so the world doesn't have any meaning. Red Hat wants you to know that all of the big public clouds are based on open source and that there are a lot of tangible products and benefits to be found once you cut through the hype.

Red Hat released 28 videos from Red Hat Summit and posted them to their website. They were available in ogg and mp4 formats so I downloaded them all, converted them to webm format (300Kbit video, 64Kbit audio, 20 FPS) and posted them to archive.org honoring the Creative Commons license they posted them under. Posting them on archive.org means they won't be hard to find a year from now like they will be on Red Hat's site, and the re-encoding I did means they are smaller files and easier to stream online or download.

Many of the videos are very business speak but there are some session videos that actually have a bit of technical meat to them. You can find all of the videos here:
