VMware cranks up container efforts with open-source Photon Controller


VMware Inc. has followed up on a promise it made earlier this year to open-source its Photon Controller.

The Photon Controller is a component of VMware’s much-hyped Photon Platform, a new infrastructure stack built for running “cloud native” (or containerized) applications that the company rolled out at this year’s VMworld event. Other components of the Photon Platform include Photon OS, a new, stripped down Linux; and Photon Machine, a lightweight version of its ESX hypervisor.

Readers can think of the Photon Controller as a kind of open-source version of the vCenter Server that’s used to deploy components such as Docker Swarm, Kubernetes, Mesos or Pivotal Cloud Foundry at scale in multi-tenanted environments. Essentially, it acts as a fabric for these microservices, automating the work they perform.
