Hi everyone! It’s been far too long, but that’s what one gets when one has identical twin babies ten months after getting married in Australia!
Anyhow, back in May, at Red Hat Summit, it was announced Red Hat and Microsoft would jointly engineer a fully managed OpenShift on Azure as a service. You can see more at https://www.redhat.com/en/about/press-releases/red-hat-and-microsoft-co-develop-first-red-hat-openshift-jointly-managed-service-public-cloud and https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/openshift-on-azure-the-easiest-fully-managed-openshift-in-the-cloud/.
Last year, Takayoshi Tanaka blessed us with his presence -- while I was in Australia sadly -- but he’s back!
Please join us for a full evening of OpenShift on Azure, pizza, beer, and beer. While the technology is still in preview -- and there’s not much information available about the service -- Takayoshi is in the know :-)
Red Hat says, "We will support OpenShift on Azure Stack" and there is no publicly available information at this point. Takayoshi will talk about:
- Introduction of Azure Stack for Red Hat users
- Current status of OpenShift on Azure Stack
- Azure Cloud Provider features on OpenShift 3.9 & 3.10
And -- not for the faint of heart -- after you’ve had your fill you may convince him to educate you on later at the pub:
- SQL Server on RHEL
You will not want to miss this.
