Hi everyone, after all of the excitement of VMworld 2019 in the US we are now on the countdown for VMworld 2019 Europe in Barcelona. Many of the same great sessions will be presented as well as even more announcements that we will keep track of. A few items this week to take note of.

Did you see the Oracle announcement? Here it is!

Today, Oracle (NYSE: ORCL) and VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), announced an expanded partnership to help customers leverage the companies’ enterprise software and cloud solutions to make the move to the cloud. Under this new partnership, customers will be able to support their hybrid cloud strategies by running VMware Cloud Foundation on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. With this new solution, customers will be able to easily migrate VMware vSphere workloads to Oracle’s Generation 2 Cloud Infrastructure and take advantage of consistent infrastructure and operations. As a part of this partnership, Oracle will also provide technical support for Oracle software running in VMware environments both in customer on-premise data centers and Oracle-certified cloud environments.

Are you ready for Kubernetes and PKS?  Let us help!

VMware Pivotal Container Service (PKS) on Kubernetes is a purpose-built container solution to operationalize Kubernetes for multi-cloud enterprises and service providers. It significantly simplifies the deployment and management of Kubernetes clusters with Day 1 and Day 2 operations support.  With hardened production-grade capabilities, VMware Enterprise PKS takes care of your container deployments from the application layer all the way to the infrastructure layer.  VMware Education Services can accelerate PKS on Kubernetes within your data center environments with three leading-edge courses.

  1. Kubernetes Foundations: This two-day course is the first step in learning about Containers and Kubernetes. Through a series of lectures and lab exercises, the fundamental concepts of Kubernetes will be presented and put to practice by containerizing and deploying a two-tier application into Kubernetes.
  2. Kubernetes Cluster Operations: This one-day course continues the journey of learning Kubernetes. Through a series of lecture and lab exercises, the operational and internal workings of Kubernetes are explored. System administrators and Cluster Operators will learn the skills of operating an existing built cluster.
