VMware announces support for containerisation and cloud-native applications

By

VMware used its VMworld conference to preview two new technologies: vSphere Integrated Containers and Photon Platform.

VMware vSphere Integrated Containers will provide a way to use existing VMware infrastructure, skills, processes and tools to run and managed containerised applications, while working with other container products and services including Docker and Cloud Foundry.

Advantages are said to include the option of persistent storage for containers, fine-grained network segmentation, service level assurance, and visibility and control via vCenter Server.

The VMware Photon Platform is designed to allow cloud-native applications to be run at scale. It includes a multi-tenant, API-driven control plane (to be released as an open source project) and Photon Machine, a new microvisor based on ESXi with optimisation for containerised applications in VMware environments.

"Today, VMware is announcing foundational infrastructure that will enable customers to deploy cloud-native applications in production with confidence," said VMware CTO and chief development officer Ray O'Farrell.

"It's all about choice. Customers will be able to jumpstart their container initiatives on top of their existing VMware vSphere environments or consume new infrastructure designed specifically for cloud-native applications."

A replay of the VMworld general session will be "available soon."
