Corporate research departments are often pretty siloed, secretive even. Academia can be siloed in its own way, even if individual researchers collaborate—as well as being out of touch with current industry concerns. Open source software can close that gap and turn it into a virtuous cycle.

In this talk, Red Hat’s Gordon Haff will cover some of the things we’ve learned at Red Hat Research in putting together a new type of research program rooted in industry-academia collaboration and open source. He’ll cover the early-on collaboration through the Mass Open Cloud (MOC). Built on open source projects, most notably Kubernetes and OpenStack, the MOC is a great case study of a breeding ground for open source innovation, where software is continuously developed, integrated, optimized, and enhanced in a real-world cloud setting—but one that is not subject to the constraints placed by large commercial public cloud providers.

Other exciting areas of ongoing research range from unikernels to FPGAs to self-tuning systems at scale to preserving privacy in datasets. Come learn about what’s happening in open source on the cutting edge.
