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.
