vSphere 7: Native Support for Kubernetes and Much More

Posted by Felix Vargas on Fri, Apr 10, 2020 @ 02:20 PM

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.

VMware Announces Blitz of New Products to Help Customers Modernize and Manage Applications

Posted by Felix Vargas on Wed, Mar 18, 2020 @ 10:00 AM

User experience is the driving force behind an organization's digital transformation strategy. There is a direct relationship between customer satisfaction and the ability to acquire and retain new customers. Applications play center stage as most products and services are delivered through websites, mobile applications, or both. Microservices-based applications give businesses the ability to more granularly iterate and scale their applications based on customer feedback. This is directly tied to happier customers and increased revenue. As more businesses look to drive innovation using containers and microservices, they face some major headwinds, not least of which is standardizing on Kubernetes to accelerate their application modernization efforts.

VMworld 2019 Recap From Clearpath’s CTO Felix Vargas

Posted by Felix Vargas on Thu, Sep 12, 2019 @ 01:18 PM

VMworld 2019 made a glorious return to its more traditional location at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. This was a welcomed location change across the VMware community (except, perhaps, for the hotel room costs) after a three-year stint in steaming Las Vegas. The marketing tag line was “Make your mark…” and the general session theme was “Build, Run, Manage.” Kubernetes played center stage which isn’t a surprise considering this is the first VMworld since the Heptio acquisition was announced at VMworld Europe in 2018. In this blog post I’ll cover the major announcements and sprinkle in some honorable mentions that caught my eye. This is not an all-inclusive list of all the happenings at VMworld as that would be more of a blog series than a post. Feel free to reach out on our contact us page if you have questions about announcements you don’t see mentioned in here.
