Virtual Academic Workshop

May 21, 20192:00 PM - 3:30 PM (GMT+01:00) Greenwich Mean Time : Dublin, Edinburgh, Lisbon, London
Academic institutions face many IT challenges. IT environments can be complex, and departments may use their own systems and processes, making security, governance, and effective delivery difficult.
Join us for this virtual session where we’ll discuss how Red Hat’s products and services—from Linux platforms to middleware and more—can help education institutions overcome these challenges and cost-effectively simplify IT.
The latest chapter in Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) is rapidly approaching, we will be discussing recent updates and how those changes will help reduce the time you spend managing RHEL in the hybrid computing era.
We’ll also hear from Simon Thompson, Head of IT for Medical Research at Swansea University, discussing why smart organisations no longer procure storage, and sharing the details of the CLIMB project - a collaboration between Birmingham, Cardiff, Swansea and Warwick Universities, to develop and deploy a world leading cyber infrastructure for microbial bioinformatics.
Finally we’ll hear from Red Hat Academy, a non-profit program which provides free Red Hat courses to help educational institutions keep pace with industry. Membership is free and offers commercial grade content and discounted exams for students and instructors.
