At VMworld US 2019, VMware revealed its vision to develop a software architecture that can enable “any app, on any cloud, to any device.”
Pat Gelsinger, the CEO of VMware, took the stage at VMworld and talked about the way VMware is redefining the things possible from cloud and Kubernetes to networking, security, and digital workspace, using modern technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and 5G.
“VMware is committed to providing software solutions to enable customers to build, run, manage, connect and protect any app, on any cloud and any device,” said Pat Gelsinger. “We are passionate about our ability to drive positive global impact across our people, products and the planet.”
The company made a raft of announcements related to its entire portfolio of services. One of the biggest announcements at VMworld US 2019 is the tech preview of Project Pacific that will transform VMware vSphere into a Kubernetes native platform.
Another new set of products and services coming for the enterprises is VMware Tanzu. It will help customers to develop modern apps and run Kubernetes consistently. Furthermore, customers will also be able to manage Kubernetes clusters from a new single place—VMware Tanzu Mission Control.
The Mission Control is currently available for tech preview. It allows management of Kubernetes clusters whether they are running on vSphere, cloud, managed services, or packed distributions.
Recently, VMware had acquired Pivotal Software and the company is now well-positioned to provide enterprise-level Kubernetes services for modern apps.
“Organizations are seeking a partner to meet them where they are today and guide them as they move to modern applications,” said Raghu Raghuram, chief operating officer, Products and Cloud Services, VMware.
“We’re positioned to help customers succeed along each step of their journey—building their applications with the addition of Pivotal’s developer platform, tools and services; running their applications with the groundbreaking Project Pacific which will transform vSphere into a Kubernetes native platform; and managing their growing Kubernetes footprint across environments from a single control point with VMware Tanzu Mission Control.”
Apart from these, the software virtualization giant has formed a strategic partnership with NVIDIA to speed up machine learning, data science, and AI workloads on VMware Cloud on AWS. It will help customers in migrating, modernizing and deploying the next-generation apps.
