Kubernetes becomes essential in multi-cloud strategies

According to a report by “State of Kubernetes 2022” Inc. Kubernetes has gradually but firmly established itself as the reference platform for cloud-native infrastructures. However, this development poses a number of challenges. The study reveals that companies face difficulties related to the maturity of this technology such as day-to-day operation, innovation management in an open source ecosystem, work environment and of course security.

According to more than half of the survey respondents, security issues remain the main challenge. In fact, the increasing number of groups that are deployed along with a variety of existing environments makes the tasks of operation and management complex. Likewise, the developer experience is highlighted on Kubernetes. Over the past 18 months, Quality of Experience (DevEx) has grown in importance among companies’ priorities. Among the major issues identified was the Kubernetes working environment for developers.

Tanzo App Platform: Successful Developer Experience for All Kubernetes Distributions

With the VMware Tanzania Application Platform™, VMware strives to bridge this Kubernetes gap by providing a developer experience that adapts to applications, no matter what Kubernetes distribution you’re using. To this end, the latest version of the solution supports application deployment and provides greater visibility, including on multiple clusters. These features enable companies to realize value faster than their investments, simplify the developer experience, enhance its security, and protect investments already made in Kubernetes and in specialized tools.

Developers get more productive faster with the latest version of the Tanzo community

VMware Tanzania Community Edition, the free and open source distribution of VMware Tanzania for learners and business users, makes it easy to experience the power of VMware Tanzania. This means they can be productive faster, as the platform uses the same open source technologies that power the Tansu Applications Platform. The latest additions to Tanzo Community Edition provide added value for developers, and complement features currently in use by teams running cloud-native platforms and applications.

Docker Desktop is now available with the VMware Pantsu Community Edition extension

Docker Extensions allows trusted partners in the Tanzu ecosystem to access their software through Docker Desktop. Thus developers can speed up their innovation processes, without having to learn new mechanisms. They also have the ability to create and remove Tanzo Community Edition groups from their local Docker environment using familiar Docker Desktop tools. Groups can be created with a single click, and can be used after only a few minutes. Finally, thanks to the new RabbitMQ Streams data structure type, RabbitMQ is now able to process “moving data” – large amounts of data in real time and at scale.

Need for management tools

As Kubernetes matures, its use grows, and multi-cloud becomes dominant in the enterprise. Now is the time to consider how these organizations can expand their operations to effectively manage this growth. VMware solutions allow them to run their Kubernetes resources more consistently and more securely, regardless of which cloud(s) are deployed.

More clarity on Kubernetes thanks to Tanzo Observability

Wavefront’s VMware OrganizuⓇ Observability™ software provides capabilities to support organizations in their cloud transformation. Companies immediately benefit from deep insights into workloads and Kubernetes environments, and can adopt best monitoring practices.

Manage Kubernetes and Cloud Security with CloudHealth Secure State

CloudHealthⓇ Secure State™ now offers unified Kubernetes and Cloud Security Management (KSPM) capabilities. Customers gain deep insight into misconfiguration risks across 500 types of services and resources – including self-managed/managed Kubernetes clusters hosted in the cloud or a public data center. The ability to search in real time across multi-cloud environments makes it possible to examine resource configurations, as well as view relationships with services outside the cluster.
