    Today VMware announced Project Pacific, what I believe to be the biggest evolution of vSphere in easily the last decade.  Simply put, we are rearchitecting vSphere to deeply integrate and embed Kubernetes.  Project Pacific evolves vSphere to be a native Kubernetes platform.

    What’s driving this shift?  Fundamentally it goes to what constitutes a modern application.  Modern apps are often complex combinations of many different technologies – traditional in-house apps, databases, modern apps in containers, and potentially even modern apps in functions.  Managing these apps across that heterogeneity is a complex task for both developers and operators.  Indeed, enabling dev and ops to work better together is a key problem many businesses face.

  2. What does this mean for PKS? Will VMware still try to push that as an offering for hybrid cloud, or will this replace PKS all together?

    Thanks for the post. Look forward to learning more. Just another thing to learn 😛

  3. I’m not super familiar with vmware as it exists today, but the question I have is, will this platform allow infrastructure as code deployments and management of the core pieces of vmware, not just the guest clusters and resources, but of the supervisor cluster, esxi hosts, etc?
