VMware: How VMware NSX Enables Enterprises to Deploy and Operationalize Containerized Applications at Scale
On October 17th, VMware Photon Platform introduced Kubernetes as a Service.
Purpose built for cloud-native applications with integrated enterprise container infrastructure support, Photon Platform is a fully API-driven, multi-tenant platform leveraging ESXi, VMware NSX and VMware Virtual SAN.
Guido Appenzeller, VMware’s chief technology strategy officer, demonstrated NSX and containers at VMworld 2016, and now with VMware Photon Platform integrated enterprise container infrastructure support, developers can get one-click access to Kubernetes, and IT can deliver the reliable infrastructure demanded by today’s business.
A large number of enterprises are beginning to build, test and deploy enterprise apps as Containerized Cloud Native Applications. Enterprise IT and Line of Business teams believe that the primary drivers for using Containers are that they enable
- Faster software development and business agility – where a developer/devops person is able to deploy the same Docker container used in dev/test later into production environments.
- Efficient IT operations – where Containers and Container Management platforms provide a great set of tooling to deploy, upgrade, scale and patch applications
- Workload portability – with the Container run-time providing a consistent environment across a variety of compute infrastructure.
