VMblog visits with Pulumi during KubeCon 2018 in Seattle to learn more about their cloud native development platform.

Pulumi's Cloud Native Development Platform enables teams to get their serverless, container, infrastructure and Kubernetes code to the cloud quickly and simply. Pulumi provides an SDK to define, deploy and manage cloud services using familiar languages (JavaScript, TypeScript, Python, Go), with clear collaboration for teams and enterprises seeking to deliver cloud native, multi-cloud capable, applications and solutions.

VMblog visits with Pulumi and Atomist during #KubeCon 2018 in Seattle. The companies talk about their recently-issued Software-Defined Delivery Manifesto.  Find out why the manifesto was needed, who it is intended for and more!

It’s available here: https://sdd-manifesto.org/

StackRox, a leader in security for containers and Kubernetes, today released its inaugural report, "The State of Container Security," which found that most organizations do not feel prepared to adequately secure cloud-native applications, despite the surging adoption of containers and Kubernetes.

The Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s flagship conference gathers adopters and technologists from leading open source and cloud native communities in Seattle, WA from December 10-13, 2018. Join Kubernetes, Prometheus, OpenTracing, Fluentd, gRPC, containerd, rkt, CNI, Envoy, Jaeger, Notary, TUF, Vitess, CoreDNS, NATS, Linkerd and Helm as the community gathers for four days to further the education and advancement of cloud native computing.

Veeam - vmworld 2018

VMblog visits the Veeam booth during VMworld 2018 in Las Vegas to learn about Hyper-Availability and demo the Veeam Availability Suite.

With the hyper-growth and hyper-sprawl of today’s data, traditional data management is not enough. Data must become Hyper‑Available. Getting there requires a new approach that merges the traditional disciplines of data backup and recovery, data protection and data security. Moving from policy-based to behavior-based management to make data both intelligent, and ultimately, self-governing. And that's where Veeam comes into play.

VMblog visits the Commvault booth during VMworld 2018 in Las Vegas to learn more about their converged data management solutions.

Quali - vmworld 2018

VMblog visits the Quali booth during VMworld 2018 in Las Vegas to find out more about DevOps Automation and CloudShell 9.0.

Quali was demonstrating the latest version of their software CloudShell 9.0. Just as you can pause a Netflix movie and resume seeing it later, they have the ability to save and restore environments which preserves state and allows tremendous efficiencies with a high re-usability factor.

Also recognizing the fact that the world is increasingly becoming multi-cloud and several enterprises have built their own private and proprietary clouds, they've made it very easy to add such cloud deployments in a seamless manner with as little or as much customization as they require. So in addition to their “out-of-the-box” cloud offerings that include VMware, OpenStack, AWS, Azure, Oracle etc., customers and partners can deploy complex applications in the cloud of their choice, offering environment-as-a-service to their developers and testers. They call these cloud provider templates.

The company is accelerating the paradigm shift from conventional disk arrays to modern all-flash storage. And their NeoSapphire all-flash arrays, powered by FlexiRemap software technology, deliver sustained high IOPS for business-critical applications.

VMblog visits the Morpheus Data booth during VMworld 2018 in Las Vegas to see the latest enhancements to its powerful cloud management platform.

Morpheus has completely revamped the availability connections into their self-service engine and added new integrations for Zerto. They also added a SDN module so users can provision and manage Cisco ACI and VMware NSX as part of deployment workflows.

On the cloud front, they now support over 20 public and private clouds. And they can enable push-button VM and Application Stack deployments into virtually any platform and cloud.
