At VMware Explore 2022, VMware has announced advances to its VMware Tanzu portfolio - Tanzu Application Platform and Tanzu for Kubernetes Operations that unlock developer productivity, deliver end-to-end security from build to production, and enable secure multi-cloud operations at scale, regardless of where they are in their Kubernetes journey.
“Companies face pressure to optimize their application development and delivery efforts for speed, resilience, and security as they move to become a true digital enterprise. Platform teams must focus on delivering a great developer experience and path to production to speed velocity, while also providing a solution for deploying and running apps more securely, reliably, and at scale on any and many clouds,” said Ajay Patel, senior vice president and general manager, Modern Apps & Management Business Group, VMware.
VMware Tanzu is now being adopted by customers across the cloud, edge, and data centers, as they are looking for consistent Kubernetes development, delivery, and management of their highly distributed environments.
VMware continues to meet customers wherever they are in their journey of adopting Kubernetes infrastructure - whether a single team, a single cloud, or operating enterprise-wide in multi-cloud - they are relying on VMware Tanzu for Kubernetes Operations to establish the right foundation and set up an environment for the complete development to production lifecycle. At VMware Explore 2022, VMware is announcing updates to key components in Tanzu for Kubernetes Operations - VMware Tanzu Mission Control, VMware Aria Operations for Apps (formerly VMware Tanzu Observability by Wavefront), and VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid - to simplify Kubernetes delivery, management, and reliability.
As part of VMware’s continued commitment to supporting customers at every stage of their Kubernetes infrastructure maturity, VMware Tanzu Mission Control is announcing several new features that extend and optimize multi-cloud, multi-cluster Kubernetes management capabilities –
● Preview for Lifecycle Management of Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) clusters: VMware Tanzu Mission Control will enable direct provisioning and management of Amazon EKS clusters so that developers and operators will have less friction and more choices for cluster types. DevOps teams will be able to simplify multi-cloud, multi-cluster Kubernetes management with centralized lifecycle management of Tanzu Kubernetes Grid and Amazon EKS cluster types.
● Integration with VMware Aria Automation: Tanzu Mission Control is now integrated with VMware Aria Automation, formerly known as VMware vRealize Automation Cloud, to help customers consolidate their Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Kubernetes platform operations. This integration enables operators to design cloud infrastructure and underlying services, on any vSphere-based or public cloud and also deploy Kubernetes clusters directly via VMware Aria Automation while simplifying management at scale by inheriting Tanzu Mission Control policies through its cluster groups and complying to VMware Aria Automation rules and constraints.
● Continuous and Consistent Cluster Lifecycle Management via GitOps: VMware Tanzu Mission Control users can now employ clusters via GitOps for consistent Kubernetes cluster configuration. This feature provides a method for managing cluster configurations with VMware Tanzu Mission Control via continuous delivery from a Git repository. Continuous delivery through VMware Tanzu Mission Control is built on Flux CD and enables users to attach a Git repository to a cluster and sync YAML artifacts from the repository to the cluster which can introduce consistency to the GitOps toolchain.
● Application Reliability with Cross-Cluster Backup and Restore: Kubernetes application operators can now have more flexibility for their applications with VMware Tanzu Mission Control cross-cluster backup and restore. This feature enables application operators to move applications between any cluster, running on any cloud, or on-prem data center for improved application resiliency and simplified site recovery.
As enterprises modernize their existing application portfolio and build new cloud-native applications, the need for application and Kubernetes log management at scale will continue to grow. VMware’s new Unified Observability Platform by VMware Aria Operations for Applications, formerly VMware Tanzu Observability, provides simplified full-stack visibility with great user-experience, and predictable pricing for multi-cloud environments. The new Unified Observability platform amplifies existing capabilities with the addition of log management to deliver contextual data across traces, metrics, and logs enabling more actionable insights and reducing MTTR (mean-time-to-resolution) at a massive scale. The platform unifies data, insights, and actions across IT, and offers customized and out-of-the-box dashboards for applications, with more than 250 vendor integrations to start capturing real-time data from any stack in minutes, eliminating data silos, war rooms, and alert fatigue.
At VMware Explore 2022, VMware is also unveiling new and enhanced offerings for VMware Cross-Cloud services to help customers navigate the multi-cloud era with freedom, flexibility and security. VMware Cross-Cloud services is a portfolio of cloud services that deliver a unified and simplified way to build, operate, access, and secure any application on any cloud from any device. VMware Cross-Cloud service pillars include 1) App Platform 2) Cloud Management 3) Cloud & Edge Infrastructure 4) Security & Networking, and 5) Anywhere Workspace.
