Virtualizationreview | August 26, 2019
All the best new product names and code names spoken during the VMworld kickoff keynote had to do with Kubernetes. The names that involved creative effort and an attempt at inspiration on the part of the product and marketing teams were "Tanzu," "Project Pacific" and "Project Galleon." VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger left no doubt during his Monday keynote why VMware is investing in Kubernetes-related acquisitions, contributing engineering resources to related open source projects, building new products related to Kubernetes, overhauling old ones to better support Kubernetes, and spending time on getting the names right.
