Information Technology Operations teams, or IT Ops, as I'll refer to them in this article, sit at the center of the digital transformation trend that is sweeping IT. IT Ops can either be a conduit or a barrier to digital transformation efforts depending on their operating model. Their success is determined by a combination of the speed and accuracy by which they deliver services to internal and external users. This agility is achieved by elasticity, which is the foundational concept behind the 'Cloud Operating Model.'

Back in March, VMware introduced their application modernization strategy and with it, the biggest release of vSphere in over a decade. This followed the VMware ‘Project Pacific’ announcement Joe Beda made during VMworld 2019 where he made the remark "Kubernetes is a platform for creating platforms."
VMware makes very good use of the intellectual property gained by the Heptio acquisition and fully adopts Kubernetes into vSphere by leveraging Tanzu Kubernetes Grid (TKG). This allows centralized management of both virtual machines and containers from the interface we all know and love, vCenter Server. Sound familiar? Yes, vSphere Integrated Containers aimed at a similar result minus Kubernetes a few years back. This time around, however, VMware fully embraces Kubernetes with TKG and provides the vSphere Pod Service as well as namespaces and several other services which together improve performance, security, access, and management of Kubernetes in a vSphere environment. There is plenty to be excited about here.
