Virtual News 12.07

Posted by nisserow Mar 22, 2020

FROM THE EDITORS "VIRTUAL NEWS" DESK
Hi everyone, before we begin todays newsletter and some of the changes, I wanted to share a great way that you can help researchers find treatments for diseases such as Coronavirus, Cancer, Alzheimer’s, and more via the folding@home project.

- A Force for Good: VMware Appliance for Folding@Home Blog Post
- VMware Appliance for Folding@Home

This Fling is a vSphere Appliance that contains the Folding@Home client software. Upon deploying the VMware Appliance for Folding@Home, the user will be prompted to enter information to configure the Folding@Home software. Once the appliance is deployed, the Folding@Home client is running and ready for Working Units. The Fling is also pre-configured to allow remote management of the Folding@Home client. For more information on the Folding@Home Project and how we can be a Force for Good against diseases like the Coronavirus, visit the website www.foldingathome.org.

Our newsletter that has been around in various forms for the past 11+ years has a new name, Virtual News. So will we be adding or changing anything? Cloud Native will be given a larger focus in our newsletter each edition. We will still have all of the standard topics covered but from this edition onwards an extra section specifically focused on Cloud Native Applications and the related items that from this technology. I hope you find this useful, as we begin we will start slowly but I suspect that our news in this area will grow exponentially over the next few editions.

I hope that this newsletter finds everyone well during this time, and that I can continue to provide some quality reading for you on a regular basis. Please feel free to reach out anytime to our new email address vmwnews@vmware.com.

CLOUD NATIVE APPS @ VMWARE
Managing Kubernetes at enterprise scale: A closer look at Tanzu Mission Control
As Kubernetes continues to mature—rounding the corner toward its 6th birthday—we’ve started to see a shift in terms of the challenges our customers need to solve. Initially, Kubernetes installation was complex. As multiple solutions for installation and lifecycle management sprang up, companies seeking to adopt Kubernetes had to figure out the right approach. With the open source community standardizing on technologies like Cluster API for installation and declarative lifecycle management of multiple clusters, we’re now seeing a path toward consistency in this respect across clouds....[continue reading!]

FEATURED
Kubernetes without Microservices
First, let's see what Kubernetes brings to the table: The biggest benefit of running Kubernetes as the basis of your infrastructure is removing "snowflakes". In a non-Kubernetes infrastructure, servers or VM turn into snowflakes: they are all the same but also different. Servers that run your MySQL are different from those running your Redis and those running your Java API are different from those running your frontend Node.js web application. There are ways to make those snowflakes easier to manage for sure: Chef, Puppet, Ansible, and all other configuration management systems are parts of that toolset, but they just make building snowflakes easier, they don't turn them into identical servers.
Kubernetes, on the other hand, takes in your servers and turns them into uniform "nodes". You can take a node out and replace it with another one while the workload sitting on top of them can be your API, frontend or database, completely oblivious to the type of node they are running on. This has huge implications on many aspects of your operations: It makes applying security patches easier and more standard, leading your infrastructure to be more secure. It also increases your high availability by allowing you to swap faulty nodes with new ones or resizing small ones with bigger ones without the downtime and little impact.
Another major benefit of using Kubernetes is that it mostly forces any infrastructure change to be performed through configuration files that enforce and standardize the documentation of infrastrcuture. On top of that, using Kubernetes means running applications in containers which in turn means using files like Dockerfile to define the application's operational requirements.
None of these great benefits above have anything to do with Microservices or exclusively benefit large organizations.
They work to benefit both small and large teams with or without DevOps personnel. They don't require breaking up monoliths into Microservices and having to deal with the challenges that it brings about.
Microservices, like any other technology, can be beneficial for certain circumstances, depending on your requirements. Kubernetes is also the same: not all teams need to run on a Kubernetes cluster. But coupling these two together limits the scope of their usefulness and reduces the size of the applicable audience they can benefit enormously.

Posted by nisserow Mar 22, 2020



FROM THE EDITORS VIRTUAL DESK
Hi everyone, this week I wanted to give you information on another exciting new Kubernetes related solution from VMware in the form of the next version of VMware Fusion for Mac. As I am sure many of you know Fusion has been a leading type 2 virtualization platform on the Mac for a very long time. As the Mac has progressed and the type of applications we consume have changed, Fusion has been a leader in this space. The next version of Fusion has just been announced and is available for you to download and try as a Tech Preview as 'Project Nautilus'. Adding full support for containers on the desktop via an easy to use command line directly into Fusion means developers can create apps for many different platforms and with extremely complex technical requirements, for example requiring suitable databases etc, that are virtualized via Fusion and then accompanying containers as well. This allows them to easily extend their desktop development workflow in a single product.The tech preview is a great way to get to know this new technology. Head over to the blog here for more information.

This week we have a full newsletter with Webinars, new KB articles and of course many interesting articles from the world of virtualization so please enjoy.

VMware Fusion - Project Nautilus
Project Nautilus enables Fusion to run OCI compliant containers on the Mac in a different way than folks might be used to. Our initial release can run containers, but as we grow we’re working towards being able to declare full kubernetes clusters on the desktop. By leveraging innovations we’re making in Project Pacific, and a bevy of incredible open source projects such as runC, containerD, Cri-O, Kubernetes and more, we’re aiming to make containers first-class citizens, in both Fusion and Workstation, right beside virtual machines. Currently a command-line oriented user-experience, we’ve introduced a new tool for controlling containers and the necessary system services in VMware Fusion and Workstation: vctl.

FROM THE EDITORS VIRTUAL DESK
Hi everyone, third newsletter of 2020 already and almost the end of January, so much news! This week we have TAM Webinars, new KB articles, Security Advisories, Kubernetes updates and more. One of the questions I have been getting recently is how to get started with Kubernetes. There are so many resources and guides, the list is endless. To help getting started I always recommend the following.

In addition you might want to take a look at the VMware offerings at cloud.vmware.com where you will find information on things such as PKS (Pivotal) and more related to Kubernetes. I hope you find these useful to get started and also suggest discussing with your TAM or VMware representative.

Until the next edition...

Posted by nisserow Mar 22, 2020

 

FROM THE EDITORS VIRTUAL DESK
Hi everyone and welcome to the second newsletter of 2020. Its already the middle of January and so much news and many updates to share with you. If you are not aware we also have a few social media options for you including Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn to keep you connected to our TAM community. We regularly post to these sources and they are also a great way to keep up to date.

 

In keeping with our theme of modernizing applications, my question this week is how are you managing containers in your organization? The proliferation of containers will continue to increase and our tools to manage and facilitate all that is great with containers also continues unabated, but connecting all of these together can be really hard. Organizations are finding that as soon as their container count grows, so does the complexity in orders of magnitude, often outpacing their ability to come up with a sufficient strategy, and oftentimes putting the brakes on. As a TAM we are ideally positioned to assist our customers and help them make the best possible use of your VMware ad related technology, so keep us informed and reach out to us for guidance, we are always there to help.

 

I look forward to speaking to you in the next edition.

VMware TAM Source 11.23

Posted by nisserow Mar 22, 2020



FROM THE EDITORS VIRTUAL DESK
Hi everyone, this is the final newsletter for 2019 and we have had a fantastic year of news from VMware and virtualization. I think for me the highlights were of course VMworld in both the US and Europe as well as the many VForum and VMUG events around the world that keep us all together to collaborate on our chosen technology. There have also been some major updates from VMware specifically with the addition of various new organizations such as Carbon Black, Pivotal and Avi Networks to name a few. These have also provided a platform for our increased collaboration in the Open Source community particularly focused around Blockchain and Kubernetes.

The newsletter has always tried to keep up with this ever changing landscape that has been shifting to a more DevOps centric service. Over the past 11 years we have tried to continue this trend and ensure that you are given the news and content that is relevant and matters to you. We are looking forward to doing the same in 2020 and I am sure there will be even more changes that we will be focusing on.

This week as we end 2019 I want to introduce you to an exciting new feature - VMware TAM Labs. These are videos that our TAMs have created and continue to create on specific solutions based on their now home lab or work with their customers. This is a really exciting addition and I urge you to take a look at the intro here and the featured lab below.

So with that; the end of 2019 is upon us, and I wish you all a Happy Holidays.

VMware TAM Source 11.21

Posted by nisserow Mar 22, 2020

 

FROM THE EDITORS VIRTUAL DESK
Hi everyone, we re heading towards the final month of 2019 with the conclusion of VMworld Europe last week, vFORUMs in other countries and many of the key announcements gaining in traction. One of the key items that VMware announced was "Project Pacific". From the blog post by Kit Colbert " - Today VMware announced Project Pacific, what I believe to be the biggest evolution of vSphere in easily the last decade.  Simply put, we are re-architecting vSphere to deeply integrate and embed Kubernetes. The introduction of Project Pacific anchors the announcement of VMware Tanzu, a portfolio of products and services that transform how the enterprise builds software on Kubernetes.". In addition you can also sign up for the Beta here. Kubernetes and the related DevOps services and principles have become key for the IT organization to achieve. Getting started with VMware will provide an enterprise approach, which is more familiar to IT.

 

If you haven't taken a look at VMware Skyline we have information on the latest edition below. Please take a look and see how Skyline can help with your VMware support. Skyline Documentation.

 

I wish you a fantastic week ahead, please don't forget to check the new KB items below as well as the updates from VMworld including VMworld Europe videos on the VMworld.com website, which requires free registration to gain access to.

Hi everyone, we are in the final stretch of 2019 and our 22nd newsletter of the year. We have tried to bring you a newsletter almost every 2 weeks for this past year with all of the news and other interesting items from the world of VMware and virtualization in general. This year we have noticed a definite shift in the amount of content related to containers, Kubernetes and modernizing applications in general. This is a theme that will be key in 2020, and VMware is providing many tools and technologies in this area such as Tanzu and Project Pacific. With that in mind we will be adding a new section to the newsletter on "Modern Applications" to include these related articles so please look out for this new section. We begin this week with a TAM Webinar on Container Orchestration using Kubernetes, details below. As always we will continue to bring as much important news and information to you for the final newsletters of 2019 and onward in 2020.
