How the New VMware vSphere Updates Help Developers Unlock Kubernetes

How the New VMware vSphere Updates Help Developers Unlock Kubernetes

Can we do it faster and better than ever before? It’s a question that deep down, every agile development team wants to answer. Creating and deploying software better and faster is the impetus behind the rise of DevOps culture and growth of the containerization approach (expectations are that container usage will grow 64% by 2022).

In the pursuit of app modernization, there’s an emphasis on finding new efficiencies and ways to streamline the process.  These goals are achievable whether the initiative is migrating a legacy app to containerized microservices or creating cloud-native apps for use across hybrid IT environments.

VMworld last week continued 2020’s atypical tech world tradition of offering all its sessions virtually. That format definitely makes the audience transition from session room to session room much quicker and easier. But for those of us tracking our physical activity we earn many, many fewer steps! 

This year’s conference offered the usual, very broad selection of sessions. They addressed all the new offerings and features and trends in VMware’s huge portfolio of products and offerings. In my opinion, as an application solution techie geek, the fundamental transition of vSphere to an orchestrated container platform based on Kubernetes (demystified in App Modernization ) was far and away the most interesting track of the conference. The architect in me votes hands-down that Paul Czarkowski’s session, Cloud Native Operations on Kubernetes, was the best presentation of the conference. No question it’s worth an hour of your time!
