The proof that VMware takes “Third generation apps”, containers and DevOps seriously is that Kit Colbert is now CTO of a new Cloud-Native Apps group ! Check out his new blogpost with the announcement and expect some interesting developments here. Today we are present at DockerCon Europe in Amsterdam and we are announcing some great new things. I quote from the press release:
VMware is a sponsor of DockerCon Europe 2014 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Dec. 4-5, 2014. VMware’s Kit Colbert is participating in the partner panel on Friday, December 5, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. CET. VMware’s booth (#15) features demos of VMware’s integrations with Docker containers, Kubernetes, Mesosphere and Pivotal Cloud Foundry.
And we are announcing today technology integrations with Docker, Kubernetes, the open-source container orchestration project initiated and managed by Google, Mesosphere and Pivotal Cloud Foundry to further simplify enterprise container deployment and management. The integrations offer enterprises turnkey deployment of Docker containers on VMware Fusion®, VMware vCloud® AirTM and VMware vSphere® as well as simplified deployment of leading resource scheduling and cluster management solutions for containers on their VMware infrastructure, empowering them to develop and run applications rapidly and securely across private, public and hybrid clouds.
Today, VMware also announced that it is collaborating with Mesosphere to provide enterprises with broader choice for the deployment and scheduling of containers, containerized applications, and related applications data center services such as Hadoop, Spark, and Cassandra. Mesosphere organizes physical servers, virtual machines, and cloud instances and lets applications draw from a single pool of intelligently- and dynamically-allocated resources, increasing efficiency and reducing operational complexity.
By enabling enterprises to quickly deploy containers, virtual machines or containers within virtual machines along with associated management solutions on a common platform, VMware helps DevOps teams to build, deploy and scale their applications with confidence. VMware today released technology integrations that enable:
- One-click deployment of Docker containers from the desktop to the cloud through integration between VMware Fusion, VMware vCloud Air and VMware vSphere with Docker Machine. Learn more here.
- Rapid installation and deployment of Kubernetes via VMware vSphere for container cluster deployment, management and orchestration.
- Simple and fast installation and deployment of Mesosphere via VMware vSphere to run and manage data center applications and services at scale.
- Rapid deployment and management of Linux container application instances via simple virtual machine installer of the Pivotal Cloud Foundry platform on VMware vSphere.
