Cisco: Red Hat Summit 2016 – A Review of key moments

Red Hat Summit 2016 in San Francisco is an ideal setting to experience the power of open source in enterprise, for customers, partners and community enthusiasts. For me personally, this year’s event was a great learning experience, both from the standpoint of quality face-to-face time with industry experts, and the opportunity to check out the coolest technology updates from hi-tech companies. Read the pre-event blog post for highlights and key Cisco activities.

Let me start with some trivia, where I give the answer as well. Where did the company Red Hat derive its name from? Turns out the founder, Marc Ewing, had an affinity for red hats and wore his grandfather’s red lacrosse cap during his college days at CMU. In fact, Marc used to name his projects Red Hat 1, Red Hat 2 and so on.   When he started his Linux project, he named it Red Hat Linux for lack of a better term – so goes the history.

My key observations:

  1. Containers is a huge bet for Red Hat. It now competes with many, including Docker, even on how to deliver them.
  2. Security scanning for containers is going to be big in the enterprise and a number of companies will offer scanning tools to help reduce and eliminate potential threats.
