Just off from the VMworld 2017 US event. As always VMware featured a number of great announcements at VMworld 2017 including VMware Cloud on AWS. VMware customers can now run new or existing virtualized workloads in the AWS cloud while maintaining their current VMware tools and skill sets
This announcement provides an important shift in the hybrid cloud market for businesses looking to adopt the agile flexibility and services of cloud while preserving infrastructure and investments in the datacenter
Another BIG announcement was VMware and Pivotal Launch Pivotal Container Service (PKS) and Collaborate with Google Cloud to Bring Kubernetes to Enterprise Customers.
- New Pivotal Container Service™ (PKS) Delivers a Simple Way to Deploy and Operate Production-Ready Kubernetes on VMware vSphere® and Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
- PKS Features Kubernetes Distribution Built on Kubo, an Open Source Technology Created by Pivotal and Google Cloud, Addressing the Need for a Flexible Container Experience On-Premises and in the Cloud
- VMware Joins Pivotal and Google Cloud's Kubo Collaboration by Committing Significant R&D Resources
Pivotal and VMware are applying their deep enterprise expertise to launch PKS™, a commercial release of the open source Kubo technology, to help Global 2000 companies operationalize Kubernetes. Software teams that have decided on containers as their unit of deployment need a reliable, scalable container orchestration platform like Kubernetes. PKS will help operations teams deliver a hardened, maintainable container platform, while giving developers on-demand access to a production-ready environment featuring high availability, security, and multi-tenancy across private and public clouds.
The new offering is expected to become available in calendar Q4 2017. Once I have some hands-on with this offering, and we know how the whole thing will be packaged, I’ll share more details with you.
