The company that made server virtualization popular is now targeting DevOps with cloud-native containers built on vSphere.
very major provider of computing software, hardware and cloud services, along with many newcomers, see containerization as the future architecture for developing and sharing applications across OSes, hypervisors and clouds. VMware Inc. is no exception among those sharing this vision, which has evolved over the past year, and the company has crystalized its plans to bring containers to enterprises by extending its vSphere virtualization platform.
Driving this shift toward containers that enable portability via API-driven micro-services is the proliferation of new computing device types used by employees and the push toward more modern and responsive applications aimed at enabling workers to get information faster and act on it, regardless of where they are. These new applications must be portable across compute, VMs, OSes, and clouds and therefore will require hybrid infrastructures that can enable the exchange of information among different local datacenters and public cloud providers.
These applications must be much more adaptable to different infrastructures than the more traditional ones that exist today, and they require a so-called "DevOps" approach to building and supporting them so they can be developed, revised and added to new compute and application environments in as little time as possible. That's very much how VMware envisions the future of the datacenter, cloud and applications alike. These apps, company officials say, will be cloud-native. Existing apps, meanwhile, will require the tools to bring them to these hybrid cloud environments. What will emerge are applications that are API-based and can respond to the characteristics of the different infrastructure components that connect them.
