Red Hat OpenShift is a comprehensive enterprise-grade application platform built for containers powered by Kubernetes. OpenShift lets developers quickly build, develop, and deploy applications on nearly any infrastructure, public or private. But what about running databases, data analytics, streaming and other stateful workloads on OpenShift when OpenShift Container Storage powered by GlusterFS is not recommended for database workloads?

Come hear renowned author, analyst, and Kubernetes expert Janakiram MSV, and learn how to:

* Deploy an OpenShift cluster
* Install and configure PX-Enterprise, the OpenShift certified cloud native storage solution
* Failover a stateful database between hosts
* Conduct common storage operations like volume resizing, encryption, snapshots and more
* Backup and restore your OpenShift applications to another environment
