VMware’s Modern App Strategy Embraces Kubernetes as ‘Goldilocks Abstraction’

VMware added native Kubernetes support to its Cloud Foundation software stack and products to its Kubernetes-focused Tanzu portfolio as it continues its aggressive push into containers and cloud-native. The virtualization giant originally planned to roll out the updates at a launch event in San Francisco today. But in light of coronavirus fears — and following similar moves by a slew of tech companies in recent weeks — VMware moved its App Modernization in a Multi-Cloud World event online. At its VMworld 2019 event, the vendor unveiled its overarching Kubernetes play: its Tanzu portfolio. This product line includes all of the Pivotal assets, which VMware bought last year for $2.7 billion. It also includes assets VMware acquired as part of its $550 million Heptio purchase and Bitnami, which it bought for an undisclosed amount last May.Today, VMware put its new Kubernetes assets on full display, and detailed how it believes Kubernetes will bridge enterprises’ legacy VMware environments with their newer microservices-based applications.
